Four challenges of retirement overcome The Village way

Four challenges of retirement overcome The Village way

When many think of the joys of retirement they’re often accompanied by a few fears or challenges associated with this phase of life. As an established Village with many residents who call it home, we’ve gotten to understand the unease of those approaching their golden years. Here’s a closer look at a few common worries and how a life at The Village eases them.

Finding a place that really feels like home

We understand that many of our residents have joined us after downsizing from family homes and moving from areas they’ve come to know and love. To those who feel like the move to a mature lifestyle village is completely out of their comfort zone, we hear you. It’s why our well-designed homes and incredible location allow you to feel at home from the very first day. When you choose your home and your finishes, you can put your stamp on The Village, making it the ideal place for your story to continue.

Being left with nothing to do

Endless free time and very little to fill it with is often a fear for those as they approach retirement. We’re happy to report that our residents have never been more active or social! With a fulfilling events calendar that brings people together and encourages them to try new things or enjoy their favourite hobbies, there’s always something to do at The Village. Some recent highlights have included paintball target shooting, markets, lunches and even stained glass workshops. 

The worry of healthcare

Whilst few will care to admit it, the thought of what might happen should they or a loved one need healthcare is a real stress indeed. Luckily, our on-site Care Centre run by TotalCare delivers industry-leading assistance that makes all the difference so that you can recover without worry. This offers a safety net of facilities should it ever be required, allowing you to live out the best years of your life knowing you’ll always be taken care of.

Fears of loneliness

Loneliness is another worry that many reaching retirement age experience. Thanks to an established community at The Village, there are many warm residents waiting to make you feel at home. This makes all the difference and we’ve seen it firsthand as new faces become part of the family in no time. Being surrounded by wonderful people is especially wonderful for those who move in alone or have family who live far from them.
