During the independent phase of our lives, we all become accustomed to a certain lifestyle. Some of us chose to live an active lifestyle or undertaking sports and outdoor activities. While others chose to pursue more intellectual and/or sedentary hobbies. Whether you enjoyed the outdoor lifestyle or a less active one, Aveo Retirement Villages have the facilities to enable you to continue your passions. Check out this beautiful lifestyle video by Aveo.
7. Community Spirit
A sense of community is a sense of belonging. As humans, we all aspire to and gravitate towards building our own communities throughout life with like-minded friends and family. As humans we cherish social contact and engagement with other people. Our lives are built around it. As we age, this sense of belonging becomes more important to enable us to combat loneliness, maintain mental and physical health and provide motivation.
Aveo Retirement Villages are built on this foundation of community spirit. Personal interaction, common shared interests and activities are just the beginning of the journey towards building a new community – just like the ones you’ve had all of your life.
As we age, our appetites decrease. Our ability to purchase and prepare nutritional meals is compromised by means beyond our control. Consequently, many senior people don’t have a diet that provides the required vitamins, minerals, protein and fibre. This can exacerbate existing conditions and result in new ailments.
Even more, Aveo Retirement Villages introduced national nutritional food standards, applied across all food prepared within Aveo Retirement Villages. Meals tailored to suit anyone’s dietary and portion size requirements.
Location, location, location. Because this is the one thing that all Australians desire and place importance on when purchasing a house during their life. Somewhere that is close to their family.
