LENDLEASE RETIREMENT LIVING
FOR people considering a move into retirement living and even those who might not have considered it, the options can be overwhelming.
Lendlease Retirement Living has five top tips to help you make the best choice for your needs.
For many people, the thought of leaving the suburb or area they have known all their life is overwhelming.
Many retirement villages are made up of locals who have lived around the area their entire life.
If you are set on staying local, the first step is to find out what villages exist nearby.
All villages are different and working out what is important to you in a village can help narrow down the search.
Must-haves might include a pet-friendly policy, a bowling green or a home with an extra bedroom for the grandkids to stay over.
Once you have a list of villages you would like to inspect, you can arrange a tour.
Lendlease Retirement Living holds weekly Tea and Tour events across a number of villages which provide the perfect opportunity to explore the village in an informal setting, see what is on offer and test the tea.
Attending an event, such as a live concert or information session, is the perfect chance for prospective residents to meet and mingle with current and future residents and to get a real feel for the village lifestyle.
Once you have decided on a village, it is a good idea to book in a one-onone meeting with the sales manager.
They can answer every question you might have about contract options, service contributions and how to go about making the move.
