What to Expect in a Retirement Village In South Australia

For individuals who are over the age of 55 and are interested in living their golden years in a secure, like-minded community, there’s nothing quite like life in retirement villages. These are communities with quality homes and excellent facilities where active, independent seniors can live with all the amenities and services required. 

The Community

The best retirement villages not only offer high-quality services within their premises, but are also located in larger communities that are well-established and safe. The local area that you are living in should have comprehensive healthcare facilities, entertainment and stores. 

Retirement Village Lifestyle 

Although there are many excellent retirement villages with quality essential amenities, what’s often overlooked is the kind of lifestyle the retirement community has to offer. At Karidis Retirement Villages, we understand that each person is unique, with varied interests that change and develop over time. That’s why we create an environment where you can be as active or relaxed as you want to be. From yoga and health and wellness activities to art, music and theatre, the life you envision is happening here, now. 

Financial Support 

Financing your retirement years can be a challenge. Retirement villages are aware of this, and some do offer various types of financial assistance schemes to make budgeting and expenditure more manageable. Here at Karidis Retirement Villages, our Retire Assist Program is intended to provide you with fully customised financial support options that make it easier for you to move into our luxury retirement homes. 


The best way to learn about a retirement village is to speak to plenty of current residents and their family members and check online reviews to find out about the retirement village’s reputation. This will help you understand whether the services are of a high standard, whether the staff are prompt, friendly and supportive, and whether the rules of the retirement village suit your lifestyle. 

By taking the time to do your own research, you will find it easier to visualise the sort of life you can expect to have in each retirement community. 

At Karidis Retirement Villages, we’ve built our excellent reputation by offering over 55’s a simple, flexible retirement model with reliable essential services and amenities across 12 attractive locations. Our aim is to create an environment that makes it easier to downsize and stay independent while living in a dynamic community.
