Popular reasons why more people in Perth and throughout Western Australia are choosing to make the switch.

There are many reasons why you may be thinking of moving to a retirement village. More often than not, people who choose to move to a retirement village home do not regret their decision. Below are some popular reasons why more people in Perth and throughout Western Australia are choosing to make the switch.

It’s too quiet

It may be the case that your family home has become quiet and is starting to feel less suited to your needs. Perhaps there are rooms in the house you don’t use, filled with belongings that are just too overwhelming to sort through. Maybe maintaining household equipment such as your lawn mower or hot water system seem like too much work. The bother and cost may have become more of a nuisance, or perhaps your health won’t allow you to continue the upkeep.

You’d like to be more active

If you’re a person who enjoys an active retirement with plenty of travel away from Perth, it may be hard to manage your home due to the time you spend away from it. While it’s nice to come back to your familiar home at the end of a trip, an overgrown lawn and dusty cupboards are not the most pleasant of welcomes.

Alternatively, you may want to get out and do more with your day, but don’t know where to start. These days, unless you belong to a club or organisation that meets regularly, chances are you can go for weeks without talking to anyone. This can seriously affect your wellbeing and may be a major reason as to why you are thinking of moving.

SwanCare offers a range of social activities on-site or there’s always the opportunity to have a casual a cup of tea (or something a bit stronger) with your fellow village residents and neighbours.

The neighbourhood has changed

There may be other reasons as to why you’re considering moving to a retirement home. It might seem like the neighbourhood you live in has changed too - the streets are busier and crime reports are more frequent. Perhaps there are even times at night where you feel vulnerable, when once you felt safe and secure. It may also be the case that all your money is tied up in the value of your home. A move to a retirement village can allow you to free up that money, so you can continue to enjoy the type of lifestyle you’d prefer.

If any of this sounds familiar to you, you’re not alone. These signs indicate that perhaps it’s time to think about moving, as your current home no longer meets your needs.
