If you or your loved one is thinking about moving into a retirement village or is in need of aged care, it is important to fully consider all aspects and research all housing options to ensure it fits with your needs and reasons for moving.
Specialised housing accommodation options for Seniors who have suitable financial means are offered in three different mediums throughout Australia, including:
- Over 50’s Lifestyle or Resort Villages or Manufactured Home Park Villages (eg: Palm Lakes Resorts, Living Gems)
- Retirement Living in a Retirement Village also known as Independent Living Accommodation (eg: AVEO, BlueCare, Boulton Clark Retirement Villages)
- Residential Aged Care Communities or Nursing Home Facilities
Options for seniors without financial means are in public or private rental accommodation with access to Home Care assistance through the Commonwealth Government’s Home Care Package System.
