The Rising Demand for Quality Living Options for Over 50’s

27 Apr, 2015


A message from Development Manager – Phil Goodman:

The rising demand for quality living options for over 50’s is set to become one of the most pressing issues in Australia in the future.

Over the next 25 years the number of Australians aged between 55 and 75 will nearly double to over 5 million people.

A significant proportion of our population will be looking for new homes as they retire or downsize from the traditional family home.

What options are available? Traditionally, retirement villages would be the obvious choice but they are being increasingly rejected by baby boomers that are healthy, often employed, and living active lives. For many, retirement villages are seen as a place where you involuntarily move if you are ill or unable to care for yourself.

At Seachange, we believe that over 50’s lifestyle resorts are the way of the future. Unlike prototypical retirement villages, lifestyle communities are built to be vibrant and vital. They are places where people of retirement age can find plenty of enjoyable ways to be active and to socialise with like-minded people.

Over 50’s resorts allow baby boomers to retain active lifestyles without the stress of looking after a large home and yard. Our communities offer high-quality, secure homes that are low-maintenance and easy to lock-up when residents want to go away on holiday. There’s no need to mow the lawns as it’s all taken care of.

They also have extensive entertainment and recreational facilities to invigorate the mind and body.

At Seachange Village Arundel, a sauna, wine cellar, sports bar, Teppanyaki BBQ and veggie garden are just some of the facilities available at the 5-star Country Club.

Everyone in the community is from the same generation or one close to yours, so you can enjoy a wonderful lifestyle surrounded by kindred spirits.

Over 50’s lifestyle communities are about living the lifestyle that you deserve and we believe that they’re here to help you love the way you live.
