Thoughts from existing Villagers.
The Tangible things that we like about Oakwoods:
One of the main attractions for people in Oakwoods is the camaraderie and fun between staff and occupants. The whole estate is one Park like complex, with the layout of the building being so planned that it gives a feel of space to each resident. The main Function rooms stand out as well planned and well built, meeting most people's interest in sports and entertainment.
The Intangible things about Oakwoods are:
Independence, yet a feeling of Peace and Security to each individual's expectation.
More Comments:
Village life, as far as facilities are concerned, emphasised by only 10 minutes' walk to Richmond CBD in one direction, plus a fully equipped Medical Centre virtually next door to the Oakwoods Main Entrance. St. Johns Ambulance is only a short distance down the road.

Email from residents daughter: how very very happy her Mother is and how much she has changed. "She is coming back to the person she was, and is walking taller and more freely, and so much clearer in her head and whole self since moving in".

Sorry, we do not have any units available for re-sale right at the moment but we do have 2 available for showing.  These are different styles  - one has been furnished and dressed so that you can see how much furniture will actually fit.

If you are thinking about down sizing or just wondering what the options could be for you in the next year or two please ring me (03 543 9746 this is a direct number to me) I will be working until Friday 21st December so please come and have a look while these are available to see.  There will be no pressure on you to do anything other than finding out what living at Oakwoods could offer you.

 

 


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.
