Meet Debbie, our Sales Professional at The Lakes Estate, Victoria.

What is the best part of the role for you?

Seeing how much people flourish once they have settled into a village.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Speedway – my daughter races a Formula 500 and as a family we spend a lot of time doing this.

How would the residents describe you?

I have been told that I was informative, straight forward, helpful and also that I give the people the confidence to make the decision to move into Retirement Living.

What is the biggest change you have seen in a residents life?

Firstly, I have seen great change in residents that have come into a Serviced Apartment at The Lakes, through the support and general company they receive from living in the village. Secondly, I have witnessed many quieter individuals become much more social, having gained the confidence to live their best life!

What do you think are some of the key benefits of living in a retirement village?

Community
Increased social life
No longer a sense of loneliness

What are some of the biggest misconceptions of living in a retirement village?

There is just one that beats them all – “that it is for old people”


The Lakes Estate Retirement Village is open for inspection by appointment only, just call 1800 72 71 70 to arrange a suitable time with Debbie. We hope to see you soon!
