Unfortunately, one of the biggest worries that some seniors have is that moving into a lifestyle home will hinder their ability to actively, independently and – most important – happily age in place.
However, though this may be true for some estates, this is entirely not the case for our two villages, Sugar Valley Lifestyle Estate and Camden Central Lifestyle Estate.
Here are some of the facilities on offer at each to show you won't be bored at all.
Your Newcastle retirement can only be improved by moving into Sugar Valley Lifestyle Estate.
You'll get your own multi-bedroom free-standing brick home here, with gardens that you can tend to at your own whim. Want to get green? Build a flower bed or veggie patch so you can begin the healthy hobby whenever you like.
In addition, there is the Sugar Valley Golf Club right next door, and residents can easily access a complimentary three-year membership for the club. The Glendale Shopping Centre is just down the road, and convenient public transport access opens up the rest of Newcastle and Lake Macquarie for you to enjoy.
If you love that rural town feel, but with all the conveniences of an urban area, Camden Central Lifestyle Estate – located in the historic town of Camden, Macarthur Valley – would be perfect for you.
You'll be moving into an incredibly comfortable and spacious apartment with a variety of configurations to choose from right in the middle of town, within easy walking distance to the surrounding amenities. These include cafes, restaurants, shops, Onslow Park and the Camden War Memorial Pool, banks, supermarkets and plenty more.
Within the estate itself, you will find the Camden Central Community Centre. This area features a resident's cafe of its own, as well as provision for a visiting doctor's office, hair salon, library and barbecue area. Also on the estate is a cinema and gymnasium or, in a nutshell, senior living to suit all tastes.
