Retirement Village versus Aged Care

In Australia, ages 55-65 are the prime time for retirement. Considering there are nearly
four million retired Aussies nationwide, retirement housing remains a top priority. If
you’re one of the many people looking for residential retirement options, it helps to know
the difference between retirement villages and aged care. The more you know about
your options, the easier it will be to find the perfect fit for retirement life.

What is a Retirement Village?

A retirement village offers independent living for active retirees in good health. This
community of homes caters to individuals and couples who can live independently while
enjoying numerous amenities and retirement home activities. The community
environment is one of the most popular perks of life in a retirement village, as residents
come together for theatre trips, nature walks, yoga sessions, game nights, and so much
more. Customisable services and well-maintained facilities are also part of the appeal of
Karidis Retirement Villages, with 12 beautiful locations across Adelaide.

What is Aged Care?

While luxury retirement villages are in high demand, they aren’t suitable for everyone.
Aged care is another popular choice for seniors, usually those who need more support
and are no longer able to live on their own full time. Aged care services may take place
in an existing home, although dedicated aged care centres are often preferred due to
the reliable resources and safety features. Aged care nursing homes encompass
assisted living, long-term care, and hospice to best serve seniors with health concerns,
such as limited mobility or dementia.

Which Retirement Housing is Right for You?

Now that you know the key differences between independent living villages and aged
care, you can make the choice that’s best for you and your family. A retirement home in
an over 55’s community is a great option if you’re still active and want to be involved in
socialising, sports, and much more. If declining health is the main concern, aged care
with round-the-clock support is recommended.
