A retirement village is a community of seniors living in individual premises sharing common facilities and amenities.
There can be confusion about the differences between village complexes classified as retirement villages and those classified as residential parks. In terms of appearance and services, the two may be very similar. The main differences relate to the type of ownership and occupancy arrangements, the permanency of tenure and the protections provided to residents.
The retirement villages section provides detailed information on:
- what is a retirement village
- choosing a retirement village and checklist
- fees and charges
- living in a retirement village
- residents committees
- dispute resolution
- leaving a retirement village
- managing a retirement village
- where to get help
The Retirement Villages fact sheet and the publication So you're thinking of moving into a retirement village may be helpful.
If you need any assistance please contact the Seniors Housing Advisory Centre team.
