Meet our residents
Yvonne & Pat, Bartonvale Gardens, South Australia
For Bartonvale Gardens Retirement Village residents, the combination of community support and an active social life makes village life relaxed and secure.
Pat said getting involved in activities and attending functions has been the key to getting the most out of life in the friendly village community.
“It’s amazing how many connections you find with the people you’re chatting with when you’re at this age in life,” Pat said.
“Age isn’t a barrier to us all getting out and about. It’s what you have done that brings you together.”
Yvonne said she felt like a part of the friendly community from the outset.
“It was only a couple of days after I moved here that Pat came and introduced herself,” Yvonne said.
“We had some champagne, and we didn’t stop talking!”
Yvonne added that the main benefit is knowing there’s always someone to lend a helping hand or a listening ear.
“If residents need help, it’s here,” Yvonne said.
“You know there’s always someone around.”
