A Safe, Secure and Vibrant Retirement Community lifestyle

Article featured in The Daily Telegraph Edition 2nd July

Our communities are designed for both veterans and non-veterans to actively enjoy their independence in a safe, secure, and maintenance-free environment. You can choose to do as much or as little as you like….

Laurie Leigh, CEO, RSL LifeCare

 

Retirement—it’s all in the planning! When you think about your retirement and the retirement of those nearest and dearest to you, what immediately comes to mind? Like many other people, the convenience and security of living in a retirement village have probably crossed your mind at some stage. If this is an option that you’ve contemplated, then a quick Google search will rapidly reveal to you that these villages have evolved dramatically over the last decade.

What you’ll find is that retirement villages have evolved into safe, secure, dynamic, interactive, innovative, and vibrant communities that are tailored to meet the rapidly evolving demands of Australian retirees. With a focus on high quality, active and engaged living, these communities are not retirement villages in the traditional sense—they provide independent living that is designed to evolve with your future support needs. These communities are built on a mission to promote health and wellbeing, with an emphasis on promoting social support to strengthen overall health and optimal well-being. Additionally, these communities are carefully planned to provide the infrastructure that’s required to meet your evolving support needs as you grow older.

RSL LifeCare retirement villages possess a genuine sense of community. They’re safe and maintenance-free places to call home, where you and your new neighbours have a renewed sense of the sort of freedom and enjoyment that can only come from downsizing from the daily grind of running a household—a place where your friends and family are always welcome.

Among the many stand-out retirement communities is RSL LifeCare, which was founded in 1911. Since their inception, they have proudly served retirement communities via providing professional and compassionate housing and support for veterans, and in more recent times, non-veterans. The CEO of RSL LifeCare, Laurie Leigh, explained: ‘Across NSW and the ACT, we have twenty-six retirement village communities.

These are designed for both veterans and non-veterans to actively enjoy their independence in a safe, secure, and maintenance free environment’.

RSL LifeCare retirement villages possess a genuine sense of community. They’re safe and maintenance-free places to call home, where you and your new neighbours have a renewed sense of the sort of freedom and enjoyment that can only come from downsizing from the daily grind of running a household—a place where your friends and family are always welcome. Each of the RSL LifeCare villages provides a diverse range of fun organised activities so that you get to do all of the things you love, interact with like-minded others, make new friends, and above all, sit back and enjoy life, without having the worry of organising a single thing.

Additionally, each location provides you with the first-class leisure and exercise facilities to support your health and wellbeing, offering something for everyone. Laurie went on to explain: ‘Each of our fantastic RSL LifeCare Retirement Villages has a village community manager, and part of their responsibility is to coordinate a wide range of optional activities, events, and outings for our residents to enjoy’. You can choose to do as much or as little as you like, whilst knowing that you are safe. You also have the added reassurance of knowing that there are fully-trained staff available 24/7 if you require emergency medical assistance.

The RSL LifeCare retirement villages have added three fantastic new locations to their retirement village portfolio, which include Newcastle, Port Macquarie, and Penrith. Their flagship Village RSL ANZAC Village, Narrabeen’s newest village Labuan is due for completion in the coming months. Given the exemplary standard of living that the RSL LifeCare retirement villages provide, these new locations will sell-out fast. Therefore, you will need to act fast! Remember: You don’t need to be a veteran to call one of these excellent communities your new home!
