Most people leave the family home and move to a retirement village because they want less maintenance, less cleaning and more free time. It’s not about age but the lifestyle you desire.
A real point of difference for Aura Holdings is our Resident Transfer Program. If you need somewhere to live before your apartment is ready you can move into a vacant apartment at one of our other established villages in southeast Queensland, then transfer to your new home. Read more about the Resident Transfer Program on our blog.
We can make the purchase of your apartment subject to the sale of your home and are happy to work with you and allow sufficient time to sell. If needed, we can recommend agents in the area who sold our other residents’ homes. We can also provide referrals for professionals who can assist with downsizing and decluttering.
Well behaved pets are very welcome under our Pet Ownership Rules. Your pet is sure to become a much-loved member of the village community. Read our blog about pets in the villages.
Yes, of course, it is your home and family and friends are very welcome. In fact, just try keeping them away when they see all the fabulous facilities on offer! If you have guests staying for an extended period, we do ask that you apply for a guest licence. Click here to learn more about the range of community facilities provided at Aura villages.
Yes, all our villages are registered as retirement villages with the Queensland Government’s Department of Housing and Public Works.
Our retirement village residents live independently in their own modern and spacious apartments with support on hand if needed. The residents of an aged-care facility usually only have a room and perhaps an ensuite, and there are more residents who receive a higher level of assistance with their personal care and daily living.
You need to be at least 60 and may still be in the workforce. Eligibility is by way of approval to make sure we have residents of good nature who fit in with our friendly village.
