Many people who have considered living in a retirement village have also considered the prospect of potentially needing to move into an aged care facility if their health deteriorates. The sector is responding accordingly, with many providers offering potential residents the option to ‘age in place’, removing the stress of the need to relocate at a later point (not to mention the associated stress of researching care options, moving costs, etc).
