Resident life

As a resident of The Avenue Maroochydore, you will enjoy endless opportunities for fun, make new friendships and enjoy the companionship of a likeminded community.

What’s life like for residents of The Avenue Maroochydore?

At The Avenue Maroochydore retirement community, we empower residents to shape, take ownership of and make decisions about the community in which they live.

Our residents organise their own busy village activity calendar so you will always have something to do! You can join a bus trip, visit a winery for the day with your new neighbours, try aqua aerobics, join the craft group, or meet in the community areas for a morning tea, a celebration  or game of billiards.

At The Avenue Maroochydore, you’ll have friends nearby who ‘get’ you and will be around when you need them.

Your family, including grandchildren, are always welcome to visit the village.

Meet Val, Aura village resident

A fellow of the Historical Society, Val was one of the first oncology nurses in the country. When describing herself Val said, “I’m a fairly fit 80-year-old and I’ve had a very interesting life.” And she couldn’t be more right!

What are your hobbies?

“I’m still one of the editors of the Queensland History Journey and Historical Society. I do a lot of regular editing for that publication which I enjoy. I have published a number of books.’’

What do you like the most about life at an Aura village?

“The sense of community – everyone is so nice. We are lucky in that regard. When my husband passed, everyone here was so supportive and I always know that if I ever need anything I could ask any one of them for help.

“Also, the strangest thing happened – a friend of mine lives down the end of the corridor, we’ve been friends for about 64 years. We trained together as nurses. We didn’t necessarily organise to come here together but it’s happened that way which is lovely.”

When I moved in to an Aura village, I hadn’t thought I’d make such great friends but there really is such a great sense of community, you are surrounded by so many like-minded people.”

Meet Aura village residents, Jan and Ian

When Ian and Jan were asked what they missed about their family home they said in unison, ‘nothing!’.

“Moving close to our granddaughters was really important to us. We now live just around the corner and like a lot of grandparents, we do the after school pick up. We also have the grand-dogs stay here from time to time, two sausage dogs, it’s nice because everyone knows who they are now and says hello.

“We love it here because we have always lived in the area so we still go to the same doctor, the same dentist, the same chemist, all of those basic necessities of life. It’s never easy finding someone new you trust and so we are fortunate that we didn’t have to!”

Meet Aura village resident, Robert

Previously a scientist in the agricultural industry, Robert keeps active with his love for gardening. In fact, if you were to visit Robert’s balcony today, you would see a flourish of bright flowers and fresh herbs.

“I love to garden but I am grateful not to have to worry about home maintenance anymore. You won’t find me mowing the lawn, trimming trees or painting; it’s really nice to have that behind us.

“It’s been a really positive experience living in an apartment in a retirement village. My advice is, don’t leave it too late to really consider making the move.”
