Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher has been quoted with saying “The only constant in life is change”, highlighting the need for all of us to be ready for change, whatever the reason, and for whatever direction change takes us. Some of us are afraid of change, while others embrace it. Change can help us move on after sad experiences; it can mean progress and exciting new beginnings.
As we get older, we face the change and challenges of retirement. Some people, having worked hard all of their adult life, dread the thought of having so much time one their hands; they worry about missing friends at work, or if they will have enough “to do”, and/or enough money to do it.
Others look forward to the change retirement brings, appreciating the extra time that it affords them; time to pursue dreams and challenges, time to spend with children and grandchildren; time to continue an active lifestyle at a more leisurely pace.
So, as you change from active employment to active retirement, why choose a retirement village? And why choose Maryville Courts?
There are many reasons people consider a move to a retirement village: the house is too big, and has becoming too costly, in terms of both money and effort to maintain; the garden is too large and hard to manage; some might want to downsize to free up some capital to achieve the most from their retirement. Others want the security and companionship retirement villages offer.
Maryville Courts is a vibrant village of like-minded people; it offers the convenience of inner city living; it offers security, the opportunity for new friendships, and a maintenance-free lifestyle. It’s all about choosing the lifestyle that suits you, and at Maryville residents live independently in their own homes but enjoy the hospitality and warmth that comes from the communal facilities and, if they so choose, can enjoy the many and varied activities that are available.
John F Kennedy said “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”
At Maryville Courts we encourage people to embrace the changes retirement brings, to look to the future, to explore new ideas, meet new people, and to keep on keeping on with life.
