Retirement is the opportunity to live life to the full and enjoy the lifestyle of your choice.
Every day more and more Australians are choosing to opt for the comfort and security provided by independent living communities.
At Greenfields Living, we are here to guide you and ensure you are fully aware of the benefits of retirement living. It’s a lifestyle choice and we are here to help you understand the type of lifestyle and all of the options that are available to you.
What is independent living?
Independent living communities, also described as retirement villages and lifestyle communities, provide housing designed for people 55 years and older who are actively independent and able to care for themselves.
An independent living community may be a good option if you want:
- To live independently while in a safe, secure community with great recreational facilities.
- To reduce the time and cost of performing home maintenance.
- To be part of an active, social community with like-minded peers.
- Access to minor assistance or help available when you need it.
Do you have to be retired to live in a retirement village?
A retirement village is a managed community for over-55s who are recently retired or considering retirement in the very near future. While the name might be confusing, you don’t need to be completely retired to be eligible for a retirement community. You could be working part time as you transition to retirement, or working casually to keep busy and active while supplementing your retirement income.
Our approach to independent living
At Greenfields Living, our independent living communities offer comfortable and secure living options for people over the age of 55 in the Northern Territory. Residents can enjoy the benefits of living in an active, safe environment without the day to day burden of maintaining their own property, whilst ensuring everyday support and care needs are met.
We provide all maintenance to properties on the residents’ behalf, meaning residents need not be stressed or hassled by having to carry out their own maintenance at home.
Greenfields Living is committed to providing safe and secure, unique independent living communities.
At Greenfields Living, our residents also have access to a range of support agencies and personal care services if needed. Our strong relationship with these service providers means residents can benefit from receiving additional support services in an easy and stress-free way, all the while still living independently in your own home.
With lush tropical gardens, beautifully designed and maintained independent living villas and community areas, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a luxury retreat.
