Retirees looking to downsize can benefit from serviced apartment living. It’s a great way to simplify your life while maintaining your independence and accessing amenities and services tailored to seniors. Karidis offer apartment living as an option across our 12 retirement villages in Adelaide. In this blog, we look at the benefits of living in a senior living apartment and how to weigh up whether it’s right for you.

Low Cost and Low Maintenance

Senior living apartments allow you to focus on a more laid back, relaxing lifestyle for your golden years. You no longer have to stress about upkeep and maintenance of your home, like mowing lawns, clearing gutters and cleaning unoccupied rooms. Instead, you can enjoy recreation and explore new interests and friendships while still remaining healthy and active.

Apartments in retirement villages can be more affordable compared to villas or standalone houses, in certain locations. You can enjoy life in a community filled with like-minded people while maintaining your own independence and private space.

Access to Amenities

In popular beachside suburbs like Glenelg, apartment lifestyle communities allow retirees to enjoy premium amenities with access to local retail shopping, medical services and busting dining and entertainment venues. At the same time, you can enjoy life in a connected community setting with communal facilities like an indoor pool and spa, gym, billiard table, outdoor barbecue area and community centre with regular activities for residents.

Extra Help to Make Daily Life Easier

Living in an apartment as a retiree means enjoying a simpler life where tasks like gardening, weeding, maintenance and repairs are done for you. At the same time, you have the freedom and flexibility to do the things you want to do. If you still enjoy cooking and entertaining guests, you can continue doing so in your own private space.

At a Karidis apartment lifestyle village like Avista Glenelg, you can find luxurious one, two or three bedroom apartments with a private balcony and open plan living spaces. Get the best of both worlds by enjoying an independent, private lifestyle with 24/7 emergency monitoring services to get quick help should you need it.
