Retired, not expired; why you should consider retirement living

August 16, 2018

Gone are the days when retirement living was tied to the stigma of rundown facilities and old-fashioned aged care options. Retirement is a new beginning to be enjoyed – one where you choose the way to live your life. Today’s retirees have a growing number of options available when thinking about how they will spend their later years.


Some are tempted to stay in their homes; others are interested in downsizing; while residential care homes are potential options, too. But, for people who want to continue to enjoy an independent and fulfilling life, a Southern Cross Care Independent Living Unit could be a better alternative.


Sales Consultant, Adam Green said, “Southern Cross Care’s Independent Living Units provide friendly and independent living communities”.


“At Southern Cross Care, we don’t build retirement villages – we create independent living communities, bringing like-minded people together in a wonderful community full of choice and freedom. In selecting one of our villages, you will be part of a community that enhances the choice of independent living. You will be able to live an active and healthy life that offers an aspirational lifestyle, safety, security and peace of mind – right at your doorstep”, Mr Green said.


Villages are in close proximity to public transport, a range of amenities as well as beautiful lakes and gardens. Village community centres offer a comfortable place for social and recreational activities as well as regular events, visiting entertainers and organised outings on the village bus. Of course, it’s completely up to residents to be involved as much or as little as they like. A full-time village manager and staff provide personal support and are there to assist residents with any concerns, while a 24-hour emergency call system offers peace of mind.


If the need for care increases, there are now “Home Care Packages” for residents to get added care services within the comfort of their own home. Mr Green said, “Residents can also have peace of mind knowing they can take advantage of the broad range of in-home health and wellness services offered by Southern Cross Care, if or when they need them in the future”.


Southern Cross Care has villages available in Shelley, Hilton, Cloverdale, Forrestfield, Rossmoyne and Success. If you are interested in finding out more contact Adam Green on 9282 9969 or 0431 795 686, or email
