Community Life and Wellness: Your Guide to Over 55 Living

Choosing a retirement community is never easy; for most people, the decision is a big one since it often means leaving behind a life of familiarity. While it is natural that more attention is given to amenities and housing options, the true benefit of an over 55 living community is often overlooked. At Karidis Retirement Villages, what we offer, along with state-of-the-art facilities and diverse living options is a strong, vibrant and supportive community of people. 

Improve Longevity

Research conducted in communities with the longest life expectancies have shown that a key factor in boosting longevity is a genuine, caring community. Strong community ties improve mental well-being, create a genuine sense of purpose and even improve physical health. Although access to medical care and amenities is a priority, access to an active community is one of the most important aspects of over 55 living

Improve Fitness and Mental Cognition 

A retirement community with wellness as a core principle has an understanding of how to facilitate physical and mental well-being. The amenities and facilities aim to provide residents with a variety of ways in which to improve their physical and cognitive well-being. From swimming pools and sporting facilities to billiards, card rooms and libraries, the needs of even the most active residents are more than catered for. 

Dynamic Social Life 

An aspect of over 55 living communities that is often overlooked is the fascinating individuals who call them home. Individual residents bring with them a wealth of life experiences, perspectives and interests that are certain to inspire and rejuvenate. 

Live Independently For Longer 

Living in a retirement community means living independently for longer. At Karidis Retirement Villages, our aim is to create an environment that allows seniors of all ages to live as independently as possible with a highly trained, reliable support framework that adapts to their changing needs. With the peace of mind that comes with knowing that there’s a strong community and trained staff on-hand, individuals are able to live confidently and self-sufficiently.
