Retirement Planning with Bethanie

Bethanie, Western Australia’s most recognised not-for-profit aged care and retirement living provider is educating seniors and those helping loved ones to finalise their retirement plans, by outlining all you need to know about making the right decisions when it comes to retirement living.

Bethanie CEO Chris How says,

“Let’s get one thing straight, retirement living is not for old people. It’s for people who want to maintain their independence, be open to new ideas and make their own decisions. It’s for people who want to live well.”

A Retirement Village provides accommodation, lifestyle amenities and services to people over the age of 55 years old who are able to live independently.

When choosing a Retirement Village, it is important to think about your ideal lifestyle. How it looks now and how you want to live it in the future. Involving family and friends in the conversation is recommended because it’s an important decision that should be well considered.

But like any important life decision, it is best made when you have all the information.

Bethanie encourages you to go beyond the brochures and speak to them and other providers to best evaluate your options. Matching your needs to those being offered by the provider will help you choose which village best suits your lifestyle.

Moving into retirement living might be a great option when the family home is holding you back from your ideal lifestyle. A health scare has you worried about your personal safety and security. Or maybe the kids have flown the coop and you feel isolated from family, friends and the community in which you live.

Chris adds,

“The earlier you consider your options for retirement living, the more options you will have. Our residents often tell us they were glad they made the move whilst they were still healthy and active, and the decision was still theirs to make. “Retirement living allows you to downsize whilst living safely, independently and in the company of like-minded people. People who not only share similar interests but who will expose you to new experiences and opportunities. New friendships might just be a few doors away.” Take a look at Chris How’s top tips for retirement here.
