A better way to live

When we set out to create a new benchmark in over 50’s living, we knew there had to be a better way than just creating another senior’s community.

While studying various senior’s community models around the world we observed that people moved into them out of necessity, not out of choice, due to problems such as ill health, family concerns or a fear of no longer being able to maintain their own home.

An enforced move is not the ideal way to begin your golden years, in fact far from it – forgoing a family home, moving away from neighbours and having to lose many of your valued possessions just to downsize into a smaller unit in a seniors community, just didn’t seem right.

There had to be a better way, one where people could make the choice sooner to move in pursuit of a better lifestyle. To enjoy a low maintenance and modern home and live in an environment that would support them for many years to come.

Seachange was created as a solution to this challenge.

“Inherent in the concept of a seachange, is the belief that there will be a change for the better. While a seachange most often describes the move from a city in favour of a better life in a coastal community, Seachange has taken this idea one step further. At Seachange, we believe that active people are happy and healthy people, and a true seachange is not just changing where you live, but how you live.”

Our Vision

Over the next 25 years the number of Australians aged between 55 and 75 will nearly double to 5.3 million people, and the demand to provide quality living options will be enormous.

Our vision was to establish a benchmark in community living for seniors that would set the standard for everything to come.

Our desire to create this vision took us overseas, and it was in Florida in the United States that we found a refreshing new approach.

We took the principles behind what we saw and built a first class facility that operates as a lifestyle resort, filled with a calendar of interesting activities and events where like-minded residents can interact as a true community. One where people choose to live, not begrudgingly, but willingly at a much earlier age. A place where you can focus on what should be the best time of your life.

This is the Seachange vision created especially for active over 50’s.

Our Values

Much is said about the benefits of community living, and at its very core is a simple concept of like-minded people sharing common interests and interacting on a daily basis at many levels to enrich each others lives.

When we set out to create Seachange we decided on a number of essentials that would be at the very core of our community living model:

  • Establish the community in a location with a stunning climate where people dream of spending their golden years
  • Find a parcel of land close to established infrastructure for ease of transport, shopping, medical needs, and recreational pursuits
  • Create a spectacular 5-Star Country Club at the heart of the community that enriches your mind, body and soul
  • Build eco-friendly and smart energy efficient housing for a comfortable lifestyle
  • Utilise a medium-density housing model which weren’t apartments and make them affordable
  • Offer secure land tenure for all owners
  • Provide a secure gated community
  • Remove the maintenance and cost burdens of traditional home ownership

Seachange is a new community of like-minded people who own their own homes and help nourish each other’s mind, body and soul.
