Rapid development and expansion of retirement villages are taking place.
South African retirement developments are seeing a facelift, with new modern features.
Lifestyles have changed dramatically in terms of how people want to live out their golden years and this has affected the way retirement villages are being designed.
A key trend to watch out for in 2019, says Arthur Case, chief executive Evergreen Lifestyle, is that facilities are “far more holistic” while allowing residents to retain their independence.
Rapid development and expansion of retirement villages are taking place, and these are centred on a range of activities in a vibrant community setting.
“Sewing and daytime television in one communal area have been replaced by wine clubs and walking groups.”
