Nearly everyone in Australia has a fond image of how to spend their retirement years. Some people would like to travel extensively. Others would prefer setting up their own businesses to keep themselves actively engaged. Some people focus on cultivating hobbies and pastimes into fruitful (and profitable) pursuits. Similarly, others would dream of a cabin in the woods or a cottage in an idyllic location. When it comes to visualising one’s retirement years, the sky can be the limit. Unfortunately, the best-laid plans can sometimes come to naught. Irresponsible financial behaviour or certain health conditions can mean that you don’t have the funds you need for fulfilling your retirement plans. As such, some people might require high care or low care. Similarly, others might require a facility where they can live independently and comfortably. Retirement homes and resorts can be the best alternative for meeting the requirements of both sets of people.
