It's a fact of life. As we get older it's inevitable we will need some extra help to get things done and to continue doing what we enjoy.

That can be anything from getting the healthcare services we need or a hand making sure we're eating well and our home is clean and comfortable, to getting out and about catching up with friends and family.

But these days, relying more on the assistance of others doesn't mean you have to lose your independence with so many options available in styles of retirement living.

Serviced apartment living

One of the choices that can provide peace of mind without having to compromise on your independence is a serviced apartment within a retirement village.

They're ideal for people looking for a more assisted retirement.

According to one of Australia's largest retirement living providers Stockland, its serviced apartments are one of the popular choices for the more than 12,000 people who call its retirement villages their home.

With a serviced apartment you enjoy all the benefits of living in your own place in a welcoming village community, but with the extra assistance you need.

Living in a Stockland serviced apartment you have three meals a day provided and your home is cleaned regularly. You can do as little or as much as you like, letting staff take care of the heavier chores like washing towels and bed linen.

Stockland's serviced apartments are located close to the heart of the retirement villages giving easy access to social activities, staff and transport.

Being part of the retirement community there is 24 hour a day assistance available. If you need urgent help you have access to an emergency call system at the press of a button from your home.
