Kelvin Grove residents comments.

Best thing I have ever done. My children say "it's been a great comfort to us as family members to know how safe and reassured Mum has felt having the back up of the emergency button"

Pam.

"I would not have been able to afford the quality of home and lifestyle had I not moved into the village".

Joyce.

"It took me a long time to make a decision to move but I am certainly pleased I did".

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.

 

In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
