Let’s dispel a few myths around the ‘r’ word?

As the realities of retirement – or the ‘r’ word – in modern Australia change, so too do retirement villages and the lifestyle they offer.

For many people though, it can be hard to get past the old perception of what life in a retirement village means – that it represents a loss of privacy or that it means you’ve reached ‘that age’ where there are certain things you just shouldn’t do.

In today’s modern world – this perception could not be further from the truth.

For one thing, many of the people moving into retirement villages are now younger, more active and many still work part-time, or are busy volunteering and dedicating their time to numerous charities.

What’s more, the decision to downsize is driven, for many, by a desire to spend more time with friends and family, take up hobbies or travel and spend less time on maintaining the old family home.

Lend Lease prides itself on creating connected and vibrant communities that meet the needs and expectations of today’s modern retirees.

There’s choice in everything you do – from the range of architecturally designed homes to the various leisure and recreational facilities on offer.  Best of all, our communities allow you to enjoy the benefits of living alongside like-minded people while still maintaining your privacy – with the freedom to be involved in village life as much, or as little, as you like.
