Why Choose a Retirement Community in South Australia

Retirement is about more than just stopping work; it is a life decision that not only requires change, but also marks the beginning of a new phase of your life that is about rest, relaxation and personal growth. Often, the choice is between staying at home or moving to a retirement community, and there’s no doubt that the choice is a difficult one. To help you make the right decision, Karidis Retirement Villages outlines some of the important factors that helped our residents choose life in an independent living village

Low Maintenance Lifestyle

The best retirement communities recognise that managing expenses in retired life is a constant endeavour. From utilities to groceries, home maintenance and more, the expenses tend to pile up. One of the most attractive features of a  retirement community is the potential for unprecedented convenience and low-maintenance living. This allows residents to budget clearly for the month, avail of essential services and support for a fixed monthly fee and manage their home, lawn and lifestyle with greater ease. 

Access to State-of-The-Art Amenities 

The most attractive aspect of independent living villages is the access to a plethora of amenities for every aspect of a person’s lifestyle. For a fixed monthly cost, an individual gets access to amenities that would otherwise be too expensive. 

A retirement community has swimming pools, sporting facilities, billiards and card rooms, access to art, music and theatre, exercise equipment, walking paths and even business centres where meetings can be conducted. 

Amenities go far beyond entertainment and recreation; independent living villages provide round-the-clock assistance and access to excellent healthcare to ensure the well-being of every resident. 

Dynamic Social Life 

A thriving retirement community is home to a diverse group of people who have lived full lives and continue to nurture their personal interests. With the sheer number of clubs, groups, volunteer drives and community activities initiated by residents, you can rest assured that there’s something new or familiar for every taste. 

Health and Wellness 

Retirement villages place great importance on improving the health and wellness of residents. A retirement community is like a health and wellness centre with swimming pools, yoga classes, walking tracks, gyms and access to wellness professionals who can provide personalised care. The aim is to create an environment where residents are encouraged to remain active on their own terms, through activities that interest them.
