Retirement villages – costs

Q. Elizabeth
I’m considering moving into a Garden Village where there are no upfront costs, but 85% of the Pension is taken to cover rent and maintenance. Electricity seems to be the only other cost. I would be eligible to receive Rent Assistance.
They seem to be bed-sitter units with kitchenette. Furniture, T.V., Fridge, Microwave supplied and weekly linen service. Communal laundry, room in unit for a washing machine.
What are the pros and cons of this type of accommodation? Do you have any adverse reports?
Would appreciate your reply.
