A casual search for aged care facilities in major cities such as Sydney or Melbourne could reveal a plethora of options. However, you will need to do the appropriate research before taking your pick from the options available. Given the numerous retirement villages in these cities, this could be a wise course to pursue.
When selecting a retirement village, consider the following aspects:
The kind of services you require e.g. full-time care services or independent lifestyles
The facilities you need such as the stairs, flooring, bathroom and kitchen fittings etc.
The amenities on offer i.e. recreational areas, community rooms for playing games or watching movies etc.
The budget available (including a plan to pay for all future expenses)
The ease of access to internet, medical and emergency services etc.
