More friends. More freedom. More fun. Less stress. Less work. Way less to worry about. When it comes to retirement living, less is definitely more. It offers a convenient, carefree lifestyle designed to meet the needs and expectations of over-55s with none of the drawbacks of home ownership. That's why 300,000+ seniors call a retirement village or resort home and many more would like to.
But with thousands of retirement communities scattered throughout the country, how can you find the right one for you?
That's where the Retirement Village and Resort Expo comes in. It showcases Australia's most reputable operators and the best properties at every price point. Visitors can explore all the options currently available and get an early look at upcoming developments.
The Expo is a unique opportunity to engage directly with village representatives to discuss your lifestyle goals and get an insight into daily life in a variety of retirement communities.
Brochures and websites are great at conveying the basic facts but sometimes you need to talk to an actual person. Especially when things are a little bit complicated.
Because face-to-face interaction is still the most effective means of communication. Email may be easier, but the Harvard Business Review reports that you are 34 times more likely to succeed if you make a request in person. You can't establish rapport with a computer and, with so much to consider when choosing a retirement community, no chatbot can possibly address all your concerns. If you want to get the full picture, nothing beats a detailed discussion with an expert.
Fortunately, the Expo is full of very knowledgeable people who are there to answer all your questions, so you can learn everything you need to know, right there and then. Why spend days online or in the car, driving from one retirement village to another, when all that research can be accomplished in a single outing?
To fasttrack your dream lifestyle, drop by the Retirement Village and Resort Expo. It's a free event and it's coming to a venue near you, starting in Brisbane, February 18-19, followed by dates in Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney.
If you can't make those dates, fear not. The Expo will be touring all year with many more events planned throughout Australia. Have a look at the schedule to find the next Expo in your area and save the date. It could change your life!
