How to Find the Perfect Retirement Village in Adelaide

How do you go about finding the right retirement village in Adelaide? At Karidis Retirement Villages, we believe that the best way to start the process is to consider a few key factors that play a significant role in shaping quality of life. Cost of maintenance, social life, amenities and financial support are some of the key considerations to take into account before choosing the ideal retirement village. Read on for more information on finding the right retirement community for you or a loved one. 

Not All Retirement Communities Are The Same 

Although there are many retirement village options in Adelaide, they are likely to differ in home ownership structure, living options and lifestyle. Some communities offer rental homes with amenities and other services built into the price, while others are intended for individuals who want to purchase a home and pay extra for services as needed. Retirement communities also differ when it comes to types of housing. Some may offer free-standing homes while others may rent out or sell apartments. 


Living in a retirement village can take some getting used to, so before choosing a community, consider the location carefully. How close are you to friends and family? Does the area have quality healthcare facilities? What’s the weather like? By choosing the right location, you ensure that settling into a retirement village in Adelaide doesn’t feel like you’ve left your life behind, but added something new and exciting to it. 


Every retirement village aims to enthrall prospective clients with the range of amenities and facilities they have on offer, but do they prioritise the ones that mean the most to you? Before visiting a retirement community, make a list of amenities that are important to you and whether they are maintained regularly. 

Financial Support

Although planning your finances for retired life can be challenging, communities like Karidis Retirement Villages help make it easier by offering personalised financial support through programs like Retire Assist. As a trusted retirement village in Adelaide, we are proud to offer residents customised support that resolves their specific needs. The Retire Assist program helps residents: 

  • Move in first and settle their previous home sale later 
  • Tailor their finances to suit their budget 
  • Defer management fees 
  • Secure assistance from real estate agents to sell their home 
  • Pack and move their belongings including furniture
