Vertical retirement living

PET FRIENDLY RETIREMENT VILLAGES: HOW DO THEY WORK?

Whether they’re big and furry, small and scaly or covered in feathers, pets are an important part of our everyday lives and provide a number of benefits to our physical and mental wellbeing.

In fact, 50 per cent of all new villages at Oak Tree are being constructed as multi-level apartments.
