I have lived in the retirement village at Webber Gardens for over 10 years and have found the residents to be extremely helpful and friendly. The gardens are always colourful, tended by the residents themselves or the gardeners, your choice, and there is a delightful outside seating area where residents can meet and have a chat. There is also a lovely large communal room, with fully equipped kitchen, toilet facilities, and office. It is here that residents of the village are invited to meet every fortnight for a “Happy Hour” or two, bringing their own nibbles and drinks of choice. It is also available for extended family occasions, where there are activities such as Wii, large flat screen TV and DVD player, pool table, music, small library and a “state of the art” treadmill for that that are more keep fit minded. Outside this room, there is a pleasant BBQ area which is very popular on those warm evenings and is available to everyone at all times. All in all, the village offers a relaxed and pleasant lifestyle.

I lived in a country town and wanted to move to the city. Three years ago I was fortunate to move into my unit at Bull Creek Village. The village is close to shops, public transport, and medical facilities but just as important, it is within ten minutes of my family. I like being able to help my family with the school runs and other activities. I really enjoy working in my little garden. It is big enough to get the pleasure without having the stress of too much work. I join in with some of the activities and social events at the village, but I also have a fairly active life outside of the village, catching up with friends and going to Probus. Finding Bull Creek Village has been wonderful.

When some of my friends moved into retirement homes, I thought they were crazy! Why give up a lovely home? Moving house is such a big step and a lot of work. It wasn’t until I heard of what a great lifestyle they had that I started to take notice. While I was mowing lawns, weeding, fixing reticulation, cleaning out gutters etc, they were away, going on trips, joining social clubs and enjoying life in general. What a great way to live! It didn’t take me long to get the message. I have lived at Weeronga for over 11 years and I do believe it was a great decision to make the move. The lifestyle is so different. There are so many things I can enjoy now like going dancing or playing badminton. The staff here are on the ball and are always helpful and prompt to our needs. A magic wand? I don’t need one here at Weeronga. The staff make the magic happen and faster than I could out there in suburbia.

I moved into Applecross Village in 2011. I have always lived South of the river and was looking for a village in that area. I was attracted to Applecross Village because it is close to public transport and on a direct route to Fremantle. I particularly like the small size as you get to know everyone else; it has a very helpful and friendly atmosphere and you feel safe. I love the location because it is close to the river and I can ride my tricycle down there – exercise and a beautiful view, what more can you ask for.
