A retirement village allows independent retirees to enjoy their golden years with the lifestyle they want. Retirement villages offer a secure and safe environment and a supportive peer group community.
Unlike aged care homes, retirement villages are designed for seniors who do not require aged care services. However, many villages include health and emergency services such as an emergency call system installed in units, visiting health services or an on-site nurse. Services range between retirement villages so make sure to ask the village manager what services and facilities they offer in their village.
