For most people, retirement is something to look forward to. You’ve worked hard all your life, having to meet the responsibilities associated with your job, providing for your family, bringing up your children, maintaining a home, etc. So, retirement is a time to pursue more leisure activities, and to inject some peace into your lives. It’s a time for you to indulge in the things you have been putting off, take up new hobbies, meet more people, travelling, to name but a few.
But for some, the thought of retirement can be quite daunting - if you retire at 65 you might have another 25 or thirty years (or more) to live. By this age you have probably worked for over 40 years, and now you worry about filling in the days, having “nothing to do”, worrying if you’ll have enough money, missing colleagues and friends at work. So, although retirement should be celebrated, it can be met with a degree of trepidation by some.
If you are over 65, and thinking about downsizing in your retirement, a retirement lifestyle village such as Maryville Courts, where you will meet like-minded people, might be just the place for you. Living in a retirement village eases the stress associated with the maintenance & security of a large house; it offers companionship, and a sense of well-being achieved by living in a hassle-free environment.
Our residents, some of whom still work part-time, enjoy the convenience of inner city living, and having a maintenance-free retirement to live the way they choose.
