The Top 3 Benefits of Retirement Living

By Alison Abel

Thinking of making a move, but not sure if Retirement Living is for you?
I understand: it’s a big decision. It might help to consider the upside to downsizing: the many, many benefits for you – and your family!

Generally speaking, Retirement Villages provide a space that supports you – encouraging your interests and minimising your mental load. And while most people move into retirement living communities in their 70s, it’s worth noting that downsizing earlier can reduce the chances of needing aged care.

As one resident recently said to me:
“People should make the move while they’re still young enough to enjoy it!”

Why? Read on to discover the top 3 benefits of Retirement Living:

#1: Low-maintenance living: lock, leave, and love where you live!

One of the most significant advantages of downsizing from a stand-alone family home, often situated on steep blocks or with multiple stories, is the freedom from ongoing maintenance costs and upkeep work.

Just imagine… no more large lawns to mow, gardens to tend, or constant repairs to make!

At The Cunningham, you can enjoy the freedom of a low-maintenance lifestyle with a private, spacious, easy-to-maintain balcony. This means you can still keep your beloved pet or entertain your family and friends – without worrying about weeds or overgrown grass!

Moreover, if you ever want to travel, you can simply lock your door and leave, knowing that our team will keep a safe eye on your apartment while you’re gone.

#2: Community: good neighbours, good friends.

Moving into an established community means you already have a social network to connect in – and are free to engage with as frequently or infrequently as you wish!

The Cunningham has been created with you in mind; offering a village lifestyle that supports your social connections, physical health and overall well-being.

From social activities, clubs, and events to shared spaces and communal areas, you can build new friendships and enjoy a sense of belonging that fosters happiness and harmony.

#3: Care: extra support, should you ever need it!

In The Cunningham, you can live as independently as you wish, with the added benefit of help and support as your needs change. Our community is designed to accommodate your needs, ensuring you have the freedom to focus on the things you love.

  • On-site Village Manager
