Retirement living

Living in a retirement village means you have more time to expand your interests in a community of like-minded people.

Donovan Village, Forrestfield

138 Lewis Rd, Forrestfield WA 6058

Donovan Village features 62 modern villas, nestled amongst natural bushland where mature trees and the landscape have been retained to reflect the unique foothills setting. The village offers a range of villas with two or three bedrooms.

With onsite parking for caravans when available, Donovan Village allows residents to pursue a carefree lock and leave lifestyle. The village’s proximity to transport, medical facilities, shopping and recreational activities make Donovan the ideal retirement location.

The onsite Brian Jackson Community Centre features a library, fully equipped gym and a large outdoor area ideal for barbecues and alfresco dining, that residents can take full advantage of, especially during the warm season.  Residents are invited to participate in the lifestyle programs that suit their own needs.

A range of resident activities take place in the centre including regular dinner nights, table tennis and card games. The Village bus is available for weekly shopping trips and regular social outings.

There is a communal vegetable garden that many residents share and enjoy and residents tend and nurture the gardens throughout the village. For those non-gardener individuals, there is a group of residents that gather each week to knit garments to donate to people in need.

Donovan Village is co-located with a 65-bed residential care home in Jeremiah Donovan House, which provides Village residents with a smooth transition into permanent residential care should the need arise. Donovan Respite Centre is also in the same location, offering day and night support for dementia specific clients.

“We meet every Monday morning and it’s a real social event. We don’t need to knit anything for ourselves, so we partnered with St Vincent de Paul Society and Ngala Early Parenting and Earl Childhood. That way we can help refugees, foster children and others who may need to keep warm”.

Southern Plus Realty

At Southern Cross Care, we can facilitate a smooth move for people transitioning into retirement living through our Southern Plus Realty division.

We understand that choosing retirement living can be a life-changing experience for many individuals and their families. We believe it should be a positive experience; particularly when that process involves selling the family home.

Our services are specifically tailored to help families understand and manage the process of leasing or selling the family home, so that an individual or couple may continue to enjoy living their life in full.

With an in-depth knowledge of the financial implications of entering retirement living, our team understand the importance of obtaining a realistic appraisal to correctly determine the type of lifestyle and accommodation to your care need.
