Top 5 reasons a retirement village could be right for you


It’s sometimes hard to know if you are ready to look into retirement living options, whether you are considering your own needs or your needs as a couple. Perhaps you are feeling lonely or realise that the upkeep of your home is keeping you from truly enjoying retirement.

The team at Anglicare’s Minto Gardens share their top five reasons a retirement village could be right for you.

1. It’s more than a place to live. It’s a community.

Whether you are social person or prefer to relax on your own, living in a retirement village means you can choose to spend time with other retirees in the various community spaces and the café or simply enjoy the comfort of knowing people are around if you need them. Daily activities available to all residents include exercise, crafting, games, bible studies, bingo, snooker and so much more! Minto Gardens offerings are built around the interests of the residents.

2. Say goodbye to mowing the lawns, and more!

Do you have tasks that are no longer easy to do? Or perhaps, you are just tired of doing them. Not only does retirement living mean you don’t have to worry about things like maintaining yards or cleaning a large house, but Minto Gardens is also introducing the new Anglicare Vitality Program! All residents are eligible for an hour of domestic assistance per fortnight; that means you can choose to have someone else scrub your toilets or take you shopping or to appointments. It’s really up to you!

3. Helping you care for your wellbeing is what we do!

In addition to the fortnightly domestic support, the Vitality Program includes two free annual check-ups by the Health and Wellness Consultant. We encourage all residents to get regular exercise and provide an outdoor gym, along with exercise classes and activities to promote movement. Through the Vitality Program, access to podiatry, nursing and occupational therapy can be arranged, if required.

4. Feel safe and secure in a purpose-built village

Anglicare retirement villages are designed with you in mind. Minto Gardens has a Village Concierge to respond to inquiries and welcome visitors, in addition to an on-site Manager. You can have peace of mind knowing your neighbours are nearby and village staff can assist if you do need help. Getting around the village is easy – there are no steps required to access the apartments or community spaces – everything is accessible, no matter your mobility.

5. Enjoy the delight of a brand-new home

Fresh, modern and convenient – each apartment at Minto Gardens is designed for comfortable, easy living. You’ll love the light-filled open plan layout, private balcony, modern kitchen appliances and thoughtful details throughout. They are all ready for you to add the individual touches that will make it uniquely yours. There’s something really special about moving into a brand-new home – and Minto Gardens could be just the right way for you to enjoy that experience.
