It takes the stress away Life presents some curly questions! “What’s going to happen when I get older?” Liz found that seeing truly was believing in putting to rest worries about retirement villages. “What I did know was that I didn’t want to live on my own anymore. It was my decision.’’ Liz enjoys the camaraderie of the village community, and the midday meal provides the perfect setting to connect with friends, “We talk about life in general, but we stay away from politics,” Liz chuckles. Liz explains that her decision to choose serviced apartment living was based on wondering what the future might bring. Her serviced apartment allows Liz the balance of maintaining her independence, whilst having the security of extra help if she needs it. “It makes me feel years younger to know help is there if I need it. It takes the stress away.”
