With school holidays upon us again, I was reminded about the importance of embracing family in our villages.
Life in our villages is not just about sharing retirement years with others at a similar stage of life. It’s just as much about allowing family to participate in parents’ and grandparents’ lives. In all our villages, there are many opportunities for family to get involved in village events. This may take the form of morning teas, art shows and lessons, garage sales, birthday parties, Christmas Carols….the list goes on. Our residents have the time and opportunity to involve their families in their lives – there are facilities that can be enjoyed by families whilst visiting their loved ones. It’s always amazing to me how residents welcome others’ family members. Many have commented on how nice it is to have grandchildren around during school holidays in the villages.
Of course the other benefit of living in an Oak Tree Village is that you decide to travel to see family then everything is taken care of whilst you are away. No coming back to lawns that need mowing, garbage that’s gone off, lost mail, vandalism etc – we will look after the place whilst you are gone. It’s great peace of mind for our residents and makes the decision on travelling that little more easy.
We have a number of open days coming up in the next few weeks. Cairns, Warwick, Goodna, Yeppoon will all be scheduled. If you think you may like to see what it’s all about then come along – you might be surprised.
Until next time…
