What a relief to see the development of over 55 Lifestyle Villages here in Victoria. Their progress over the last 8 years has been nothing short of amazing, largely due to a company called Lifestyle Communities.
Lifestyle Communities currently have 8 villages in progress; the facilities on each development are first class. They include things such as bowling greens, tennis courts, heated indoor swimming pools, spas, gymnasiums, libraries, pool tables and table tennis tables, the list is truly endless.
I was walking though the village at Cranbourne just prior to Christmas and had a chat with a gentleman living there and during our conversation, he made mention that his GP believes that his move into the village had added 10 years to his life. He now plays golf once a week with the other residents, he grabs the paper each morning and reads it in the community centre with a coffee and he’s always got someone to have a chat with, what a way to start your day!
What has always struck me to be one of the most fantastic things about Lifestyle Communities, is the passion in which the founding directors always insist that any decisions which may affect their residents, is made with their residents as their number 1 priority.
