How to help you parents plan for their retirement #2 Pride & Prejudice


If your parents hail from the baby boomer generation, chances are they’ll either want to sell up and travel the world, or stay put in their family home and to live independently as long as possible. They’re probably too proud to face the grim realities of aging, and may oppose the idea of moving to a retirement village based on their own ingrained prejudices and preconceptions.  You’ll need to help them to realise that today’s retirement villages are a far cry from the institutionalised hospital-based old age homes of the past. 

Many – like those in the Evergreen Lifestyle portfolio – offer spacious upmarket homes in pristine, professionally managed estates, along with hotel-like catering and hospitality, resort-style facilities and amenities, and world class healthcare.
