Don’t leave it too late – Retirement living

- Tue 30 Aug 2016

As agents that work in the retirement sector, we at Bradleys have a direct view to what makes a difference when planning for the future.

It is encouraging to see that many people are coming to realise that if they make retirement choices now their children or relatives won’t have to make them later.

Moving in to a retirement community is becoming increasingly popular as an option allowing you to enjoy retirement in a safe and secure environment that lifts the pressure from everyone.

The most important thing that we find is that those who make their decisions sooner rather than later certainly benefit while options are still available. Waiting until declining health conditions limit your prospects from ‘best-case-scenario’ to ‘whatever is available’ can be avoided with positive planning.

Making sure the property you choose is the right one for you is paramount, and as the demand for this type of living increases it’s advisable to be proactive and we are certainly here to help you do your homework now.

Those who have already made the move thrive in this new stage of their lives, with access to activities that encourage creativity and offer well being and, above all, camaraderie. It is especially important to feel that someone is watching out for your welfare. A retirement community can provide just such a support system.

Don't fall into the trap of complacency. The time to choose the retirement community that will best support your needs is BEFORE the need arises.

Families need to stay positive and help their relatives to look forward to the end goal of improved circumstances, but equally respect the process of letting go.

It’s a known fact that many retirement villages offer support and assistance with arrangements for transport, healthcare and the social aspect of day-to-day life offering residents significant levels of independence, Lincombe Manor one of our featured retirement villages is a perfect example of this. Set in one of the most prestigious locations in Torquay with magnificent sea views, there is a mix of modern and traditional apartments available for sale.
