Benefits of moving to a retirement village
August 5, 2021

It can be difficult to begin the next chapter of your life. Do you wish to be closer to your family or are you hoping to relocate to a place you’ve always fantasised about? We’ve compiled a list of the top five things to consider when relocating to a retirement community.


  1. Make new friends.
    Many people relocate after retirement to be closer to their families, so you may notice that some of your friends have relocated. Stratton Court Village features a strong feeling of community making it ideal for anyone looking to meet new friends with people in similar stages of life.
  2. Safety and security
    A retirement village is a safe and secure environment to live in, with someone on hand to help if needed. This gives you wonderful peace of mind not just when you live in the village, but also when you visit family and friends or go on holiday.
  3. No need to move again.
    This could be your final relocation and you will not have to worry about moving again because retirement communities are built to withstand the test of time. The community is ready to accommodate you as soon as you arrive.
  4. Amenities on your doorstep
    You do not need to travel to participate in your favourite activities and hobbies, which means you will be considerably more likely to keep active, which is good for both your mental and physical health. Things that many people look for are an on-site restaurant, Gymnasium, Hairdressers, Cinema, Stunning Gardens, Bar & Cafeì, Library and a Private Minibus Service.
  5. Being part of a community
    Through frequent social activities, living in a retirement village decreases the risk of social isolation by providing you opportunities to meet new people, become a part of a community and make friends. You will also be able to take use of the many amenities available to residents.
