What should retirement look like beyond 2020?

For over 65s the ‘r’ word can get complicated. Freedom, safety, independence and support are all important considerations when deciding what’s right for you and your loved ones. However, over 65s shouldn’t have to compromise in their retirement years. These shouldn’t be choices to make, but instead par for the course when planning your next move.

Choosing the right village, one that prioritises your experience and wellbeing, can bring fulfilment and happiness within reach. Luxury living, beautiful views and a coastal lifestyle shouldn’t come at the expense of care services and a supportive community. Times are changing and we can strive to reimagine retirement.

Beyond the importance of stunning views and world-class facilities, this year we have seen the strain social isolation can put on our wellbeing. “Social connection matters, especially as we age. Not only does it delay health problems related to ageing, but it provides us with happiness, security, support and a sense of purpose” says RetireAustralia Chief Executive Officer Dr Brett Robinson.

“Our research shows that feeling secure is one of the key benefits of retirement village living, and The Verge, with its unique vertical design, takes this to a new level. It has been specifically designed to enhance the wellbeing of residents and provide the peace of mind that comes with living in a safe, secure and friendly environment.”

The Verge at Burleigh G.C., which overlooks the 10th tee of the Burleigh Golf Course, is now well advanced in construction. With the first residents anticipated to move in, every apartment has been designed for a low-maintenance lifestyle and optimised for ease of living and mobility, with layouts to suit over 65s both now and in the future. A selection of stylish and vibrant one plus study, two and three-bedroom apartments are now selling fast from $510,000.

Lorelei Bach, a local Gold Coast resident and future resident says, “The Verge at Burleigh G.C. has everything I need. Perfect location close to the beach, convenience, and lifestyle. It has all the benefits of apartment living, but with the advantages of a like-minded community of a similar age.“
