The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has made us all reassess our priorities and what is most dear to us. For many, this means a renewed focus on health and wellbeing, keeping loved ones close, and having the support of a community.
If these are important to you too, then you need to understand how living in a retirement village can positively impact your health, your connection with loved ones and your sense of community.
Here are just eight of the ways that living in a retirement village is good for your health and wellbeing.
Reduce isolation and improve mental wellbeing
Even before COVID-19, the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare  estimated that one in five older Australians suffers from social isolation. This can negatively impact one’s mental health and, according to Lifeline , can increase your risk of depression.
Life in a retirement village is specifically designed to counter social isolation, and instead foster a sense of belonging and community. Residents have many opportunities to connect with each other through a range of social activities and events, which has a positive effect on health and wellbeing. Indeed, McCrindle Baynes research  of over 5,000 retirement village residents shows that 46% report improved mental health after moving into a village.
Living through a pandemic – and adapting to the social distancing requirements put in place to stop its spread – poses a significant risk to physical and mental health and wellbeing. This is particularly true for older Australians. A key challenge of social distancing is that it decreases the availability of most formal and informal family and social connections. It also removes the physical, cognitive and social benefits that are linked to routine activities, such as shopping.
Across our retirement communities, staff and residents have responded to the pandemic with creative and innovative ways to safely stay socially connected while remaining physically distant. From driveway morning teas and roadside refreshments to treasure hunts, distancing discos and care packages of puzzles, Sudoku and quizzes, residents have numerous options to safely maintain social connections.
