Independent Seniors Living Communities provide active retirees with the freedom to enjoy their retirement on their own terms, avoiding the burdens of home ownership and spending more time doing the things they love.
Who is Greenfields Living, and what do we do?
At Greenfields Living, a newly established Independent Seniors Living Community Operator in the Northern Territory, we provide private, gated, self-funded housing for individuals and couples over the age of 55 who do not require assistance with day to day living. Residents of our Seniors Living Communities at Tiwi Gardens and Durack Gardens live just as they would in their own home, but enjoy the added benefits of resort-style facilities, regular activities, social events and home and garden maintenance services.
We are the Operator of two Seniors Living Communities in Darwin. Tiwi Gardens is located in Darwin’s Northern suburb of Tiwi and comprises 64 modern independent living villas consisting of a range of modern, tropical, well-appointed properties accommodating two to three bedrooms. Our second and newest community is at Durack Gardens, The Heights, located in Palmerston. This development will be opening its doors to our very first residents at the end of 2017 and will offer a range of stunning luxurious two and three bedroom villas, with outstanding state of the art resident facilities.
What is Independent Living?
Essentially, an Independent Seniors Living Community is made of up of individuals who lead completely independent lives; they might enjoy social groups and activities inside the community but also lead a completely independent and active life outside of the community, with some residents even working part time.
Independent Seniors Living Communities allow residents to purchase lifetime licenses to reside in a range of independent living villas. At Greenfields Living, our villas are practical, spacious and modern, perfect for those who are looking to downsize or for the occasional family or friend to come and stay.
Safe, Secure, Spacious Environment
Our communities offer secure, gated complexes with residents purchasing lifetime licenses to reside in Independent Living Villas. At Greenfields Living, our thoughtfully designed villas are comfortable, practical and modern, comprising of 2-3 bedrooms.
Another major benefit of living in a retirement community like Tiwi Gardens or Durack Gardens is the increased range of services that residents can enjoy, from spacious and fully-maintained community centres, through to lush tropical gardens and recreational facilities.
Truly Maintenance-Free Living
Greenfields Living Independent Seniors Living Communities are managed by an Operator that take care of all maintenance for residents. This includes standard and general maintenance, inclusive of all plumbing and electrical, to everyday maintenance such as replacing light globes and general gardening.
The Operator takes care of the maintenance to remove the stress and expense from residents. Simply report the maintenance issue to the Operator, and they take it from there! We have our own maintenance teams and we believe they provide familiarity and security to residents, as well as enabling all residents to develop a relationship with the team.
The cost of this maintenance is paid for by residents on a fortnightly basis, by payment of a “Maintenance Fee”. This fee covers just about every cost associated with maintaining the residents home and includes; water, council rates, general and garden maintenance to common areas, site security, site management and community events, public lighting as well as a 24/7 medical alarm with full-time monitoring.
This maintenance fee is competitively priced, and it allows the Operator to remove the everyday stresses residents might face with remembering to pay numerous suppliers.
Whilst the Operator takes care of the day to day running of the site and management of all facilities and villas, residents are still required to live independently in their own home and must be able to have an active life without full-time assistance.
A Variety of Available Support Services
If the time comes for extra support, we can assist with accessing a wide range of services to suit your individual needs. Darwin and its surrounding suburbs have a number of aged care services providers who can assist with care packages that cater for each resident’s individual needs.
Here at Greenfields Living, we have full appreciation of the importance of staying connected to family and friends, and our villages are designed to allow and encourage ongoing social interaction on a day to day basis, inside and outside the community environment.
Retirement Living has never been more flexible and enjoyable.
