When looking around for a retirement community in which to spend the freedom years of your life, it pays to look beyond the bricks and mortar.
There is one very special factor that makes every village unique and that is the people, according to Wodonga Gardens Retirement Estate manager Ruth Kernaghan.
She says the people provide the spirit and style and it’s important to understand your potential new neighbours and how you will fit together.
“At Wodonga Gardens Retirement Estate, we have a sensational community of people who respect each other, love to share a laugh, value their privacy, and that of others and generally set the vibe for the village,” Ms Kernaghan said.
“A sense of community is key to all of us.
“That feeling of belonging and connection with like-minded people is very important.”
Residents can participate as much or as little as they wish in the activities and events that are planned, Ms Kernaghan said.
“But the whole time, you have a natural network of friends and supporters looking out for you.”
If you love the Border region but are looking to downsize your home and upsize your circle of friends, those interested are welcome to contact Ruth at Wodonga Gardens Retirement Estate.
