STAYING in the workforce helps keep baby boomer Robert West young.

As a business owner in the construction industry, Mr West works full-time and commutes to his Browns Plains office from the Seachange Arundel over-50s community.

“I enjoy what I do. It keeps me young,” he said.

“While I feel I’m adding value to the business, and it’s not a strain to get up in the morning and go to work, I will keep on doing it.”

Mr West said easy access to the highway, the security of a gated community and good neighbours were reasons behind the decision to move to Seachange Arundel about six years ago.

The 64-year-old maintains a healthy lifestyle, with a trip to the gym or a 25km bike ride a regular part of his morning exercise.

“We are definitely more active (than previous generations),” he said. “I look back at my mother and father, and how they were. Then I look at the environment we are in now, and I see 80 year olds – I hope I’m still that active when I’m 80.”

Mr West said Seachange was close to important services, with a shopping centre, doctor, dentist and hotel all across the road.

Before moving to Seachange Arundel, Mr West and his wife rented a unit at Kangaroo Point in Brisbane, but were glad they decided to buy into the Gold Coast over-50s community.

“Living in a unit, you never really see people, and it is an insulated environment,” he said.
