Planning for Retirement? Move to The Village

Blog 14 November 2019

Retirement is a big and exciting step to be making. At each step along the way you are going to be making choices that are going to shape your retirement and the life you’ve worked hard to earn. 

Retirement ought to be an enjoyable and fulfilling part of our lives. Leaving the stresses of our working lives to start out on a new phase. Retirement is an opportunity to build a new way of living for ourselves and new ways to bring both pleasure and purpose into our days.

Like Living on a Non-Stop Cruise

The residents of our village communities are some very well-travelled people, and we’re seeing more and more residents heading out on their own adventures around Australia and overseas. If you haven’t been on a cruise, you should. But for the residents in our community that have, many of them have said that living in our village communities feels a bit like it. 

What they’re talking about is that there is always something to do, and the freedom to do none of it if you don’t want to. In our village communities there is always a new activity for you to jump into and plenty of ways to connect with the people around you.

Stay Engaged – Be a Part of Something Bigger

We aren’t built to sit still, and we weren’t designed to spend all of our time thinking about the same things. A big part of what makes us tick is having something to do and other people to do it with. Being a part of something bigger than ourselves anchors our lives and gives us something to draw on not only for support, but also for fulfilment and purpose. 

The newest additions to our village communities are often surprised by the opportunities they have to get to know the people around them and the support they have in staying active and engaged. It is the thing that sets us apart and makes any one of our village communities an amazing choice for those looking to build a life full of all the things you need to make a happy and fulfilling retirement.

The Village – More Than Just A Retirement Facility

The Village has locations all across Queensland. Each location has its own community, its own history and activities of all kinds to keep residents learning and growing. Retirement is changing for the better, and more people are taking the opportunity to continue living life to the fullest after the working part of the lives is over.

We believe whole-heartedly that a happy retirement includes continuing to challenge ourselves and keeping ourselves engaged with the community around us. By putting ourselves out there and trying new things we haven’t tried before, we can meet new people and build the life we want for ourselves after retirement

At each of our village communities, you can find residents doing the sorts of things that they use to challenge themselves and learning more about new things they haven’t tried before. If you’re looking for a community that will give you the support and the opportunity to keep living your life to the fullest after retirement.
