Recently, we have seen an increase in the development of over-55s housing in the suburban areas of Perth.

More couples are now making the decision to down-size to a smaller home, located in a community of like-minded people. The move to these communities are proving to be beneficial to the social wellbeing and mental health of older people.

Many estates have exclusive amenities such as 24 hour security, leisure facilities, group activities and more. Unlike a traditional retirement village, over-55s developments have duplex or villa type homes, allow pets (in some cases) and encourage independent living.

Benefits of Over-55s housing

  • Activities such as golf, tennis, swimming, art studios, woodworking shops, garden plots, live theater, clubs and social activities.

  • Security is the second most common reason many people give for wanting to live in an age-restricted community

  • Located near medical facilities

  • Low maintenance housing

  • Convenient

  • Can learn new skills

  • Quiet residents

  • Better opportunities to meet other people in the same age group

  • Designed to provide easy access for the elderly and handicapped

And the best thing….
