Every Australian deserves a safe and beautiful spot to retire, which is why premium retirement villages are in high demand. While there are many options out there for retirement village living, not all retirement village homes and communities are created equal. Here are our top tips for choosing the right retirement village for you.

Prioritise Location

Buying a home in a retirement village can be a fantastic investment in your future, especially if it’s in the right location. Maybe you want to live somewhere close to your current home, or perhaps you’d like to start fresh in another area of Adelaide. Either way, you should keep location at the top of your list.

Consider Home Layouts

In addition to location and proximity to your favourite places, home design options should also be considered when looking at independent living villages. Would you prefer a community of apartments, flats, town homes, or standalone houses? Remember, you deserve to feel comfortable and live in your ideal retirement home that’s safe, stylish and spacious.

Appreciate Privacy

While looking for the right retirement village, privacy should be a top priority. Is the community secure and in a safe location? How many other residents live there? You should definitely feel a sense of privacy, safety, and contentment when you tour potential independent lifestyle villages.

Explore Dining Options

When living in a retirement village, you should have access to indoor and outdoor dining to experience a fabulous sense of community. Pay attention to the size of the home kitchen and whether it has everything you need, as well as the dining options within the surrounding community so you’ll be satisfied with your new lifestyle.

Put Wellness First

Finally, wellness programs can also make a big difference in your decision on which retirement village to choose. The benefits of retirement community life are even better if there is a dedicated wellness program. Activities like yoga, bowling and aqua aerobics are just a few examples of wellness options that will help to keep you active and healthy during retirement.
