Independent Living

For people with an active lifestyle this type of independent accommodation offers the freedom of their own unit or apartment, within the safety and security of a retirement community. 

Independent living options come in many shapes and sizes, from large communities with hundreds of villa's, boutique sized villages with only a handful of units and retirement apartments in a vertical village.

Serviced Apartments

This type of accommodation is also referred to as supported or assisted living. They're a combination between retirement living and an aged care home where you can live independently with access to various levels of care and assistance.

Residents of serviced apartments are generally mobile and independent but require some help with daily living activities. Services can include cleaning, laundry, assistance with personal care and nursing care.
