I’ve been working at Vermont Retirement Village since August. My typical day is spent showing prospective residents the facilities and units on offer at the village.
A common thing I’ve noticed among visitors is they often don’t think they’re not ‘old enough’ for retirement living – but when they visit they realise that village life is dynamic and fulfilling – it’s not what they originally expected it to be.
Our units are low-maintenance, which means there’s less house and yard work that needs to be done. And the community has so many social and health activities that contribute to a positive, balanced lifestyle:
• A village bus service for outings
• A country club-style clubhouse with billiards, a library, a craft room and kitchen.
• Outdoor areas including a pond and BBQ area
• Onsite health and wellbeing staff, visiting health professionals and a 24-hour emergency call system.
A lot of people wait until their health declines, but the key is to move to a village to improve your lifestyle so you can enjoy the long-term health benefits.
