Retirement is a new and exciting chapter in life, where you have the freedom to enjoy the things you love and explore new interests. And that's exactly what Warwick and Robin discovered when they moved into one of Wesley Mission's vibrant and friendly retirement living villages.

For the Carlingford-based couple, Alan Walker Village offered the lifestyle they wanted, close to family and friends, with the added benefit of extra care if they needed it.

After years of living in a big house, they wanted to downsize so they could unwind and spend more time together.

"We don't have any worries. I don't have to mow lawns. Robin doesn't have to vacuum steps," says Warwick. "We feel secure, and our family realises that we're also well-cared for. We've only got to press the call button and help will come."

After attending a village open day, Warwick and Robin fell in love with their new home. From the leafy landscapes, wide-open spaces and modern amenities, they found everything they were looking for.

"It's a lovely unit and everything's so fresh," says Robin. "It's a two-bedroom unit and it's really very spacious, but I haven't got the housework to do that I had before, and that's made a big difference. We really are in the best place."

"Everything that we want is here, this is the lifestyle that suits our age," adds Warwick. ". We're glad, really, to move on and to sort of feel that we're free. We haven't got many of the responsibilities that we had before, and we're able to enjoy our retirement."

Across our three Sydney villages - Alan Walker Village in Carlingford, Frank Vickery Village in Sylvania and Wesley Taylor Village in Narrabeen, you'll find safe and supportive communities of like-minded retirees.

Our contemporary one-, two- and three-bedroom low-rise units are set within manicured grounds, close to public transport and shops. All units feature open-plan layouts, quality finishes, modern appliances and a 24-hour emergency call system to onsite staff. With each of our villages also located next door to a Wesley Mission residential aged care home, you can have peace of mind knowing care and support is available should you or your loved one need it.

With our onsite support and a variety of activities and amenities, you can discover a sense of belonging in a supportive community.
