Stockland is a proud Australian company with over 60 years experience in creating vibrant communities, and with 62 retirement communities across Australia, we are committed to fulfilling the needs of older Australians.The Stockland Retirement Living team, from the office to the garden, are passionate, professional people dedicated to supporting our communities.
In our retirement communities you can live the life you have always enjoyed, share your interests, and develop new ones. You can maintain your independence whilst living in a supportive and secure environment. No wonder almost 10,000 Australians choose to call a Stockland retirement community home.
The happiness of our residents is key to building successful communities, so we conduct annual resident surveys at each of our villages to make sure were meeting and exceeding expectations.
Some results from our 2012 resident survey:
88% of our residents say they are happy living in their village.
91% of residents scored their satisfaction with their home a 7 out of 10 or above.
80% of residents said they spend quality time with other residents at least 2-3 times per week.
The resident survey helps determine specific areas of satisfaction, gain an insight into whats important in our resident's lives, and understand how village life can influence their happiness. Weve also come to learn there are many different reasons for considering the change to retirement living.
Stay connected. A safe and secure environment where you can live surrounded by a supportive network of people is essential. People may not move into a Stockland retirement village with the purpose of making new friends, but they invariably find them. Village life provides a wonderful level of connection and support. You can go on holidays knowing someone is looking out for your home, and that there is always the Village Manager to lend a helping hand if needed.
Maintain your independence. Moving into a retirement village doesn't mean giving up your freedom. Friends or family are welcome to stay. Come and go when you want. There are no schedules or timetables to follow. There is just less time spent on household maintenance, which gives you more time for things you enjoy.
Learn new things. Each community is a hub of activity where people come together to share the things they love doing and take part in new activities. You could learn to play indoor bowls. Sharpen your IT skills in the computer room. Learn to skype. Get involved in arts and crafts. Or share your own skills by starting a group. Of course, it's up to you to be involved in activities as much or as little as you'd like. The choice is yours.
