Sweeten Your Life: What To Love About Retirement Living

March 30, 2022

Let’s hit refresh when it comes to the perception of residential retirement communities. Here are four wonderful ways retiring in ‘the village’ might surprise you.

You’ll have more options

Whether it’s easy access to services like physiotherapy and podiatry or the convenience of on-site hairdressing, retirement communities provide an array of options to enhance your lifestyle. Blue Hills also offers continuum of care right here on-site, so that when it comes to deciding your future care needs, you’re also better positioned.

For example, transitioning from Independent Living to Aged Care is seamless at Blue Hills Village with dedicated care available on-site at The Manor. Making a stress-free transition in a familiar community environment is a tremendous comfort for residents and their loved ones.

The daily agenda is up to you

Blue Hills Village is all about having more ways to spend your day. Enjoy a daily lucky dip of activities including breakfast and dinner events, raffle nights, movie nights and even a Ukulele group. Be the life of the party–or enjoy some peace and quiet. There’s no judgement with how you spend your day. But you can always bet on having opportunities to interact and try something new whenever you fancy.

Community spirit is thriving

Feel like being neighbourly is a fading phenomenon? Well, you can find it right here in the village’s authentic, warm, and welcoming community. To minimise loneliness and isolation, retirement communities are designed and operated to promote social connections–without overly pushing the agenda! Living as part of a likeminded community means there’s always a friend to catch up with for coffee and chit-chat. Prefer your own company? That’s OK–you’ll always have a caring community close by.

Secure living with added freedom

Delivering ultimate peace of mind, retirement communities prioritise the safety and security of residents. Blue Hills also operates a 24hr monitored resident emergency alarm system for added protection. But secure living does not spell life under lock and key. In fact, it offers more freedom. Feel like booking an impromptu getaway? With lock-and-leave convenience, you can relax knowing your home and gardens will be looked after by the Blue Hills team. Bon voyage!
