Senior lifestyle living makes for better life
18 October, 2018
"Twelve months into retirement has been an enlightening experience. My world has changed, better than expected. As part of my grand new retiree world, one such virtuous experience has been to participate as a photographic model for a company who develops and manages lifestyle retirement villages. Aura Holdings engaged my services, along with my now newly formed friends, to represent their company for a fun photographic and video day.
"Kingsford Terrace Corinda is surrounded by groomed gardens and shaded pergolas, includes swimming pool, gym, library, games room, schedules of social activities and a café (also open to the public). The units have a splendid fresh feeling about them. They are a modern architecture with open spacious balconies and the internal fittings designed to cater for people in the event they become frail. They are the new-age retirement village, with locations throughout SE Queensland. It is obvious they are focused on creating a truly connected retirement as you are surrounded by a community of like-minded people.
"It was this awesome experience that enlightened my understanding of how things have radically improved for people as their circumstances change and they approach retirement. Residents are empowered, have ownership, independence, freedom, quality lifestyle, there are people out there who care and there are wonderful support services available in the community. Happiness is possible.''
