Astute retirees recognize that many benefits can now be gained by selling their home and reducing their community over the age of 55, according to a leading provider of retirees.
MYVISTA Mirrabooka Retirement Apartments reports that some residents have taken the opportunity to sell in Perth’s strong real estate market and move into an apartment in the new complex, potentially freeing up capital to spend on the pleasures of life.
Senior real estate sales spokeswoman Caryl Sutrisna said the timing could not be better for people who want to take the move.
“Although new buildings and renovations are currently very expensive and take a long time to complete due to a shortage of trade and materials, these apartments are ready to come in and enjoy them right now,” she said.
“Family homes often sell after the first week on the market, now is the time to act.”
Available on a lifetime basis, each well-finished apartment has two or three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a stylish finish and a large balcony.
There is also a kitchen with stone countertops, an induction hob, an affordable wall-mounted oven and a dishwasher with double drawers, as well as a separate laundry room and plenty of storage space.
The building has parking, there are two charging compartments for electric cars.
Ms. Sutrisna said that MYVISTA Mirrabooka Retirement Apartments differs from conventional residential complexes in some important design features and its location, which is above the thriving medical part and close to the highly respected MYVISTA nursing home.
“Residents of the apartment are calm, knowing that they can maintain control over their lives as they age, because where they live is physically safe and easy to move, even if they once use a means of transportation,” she said.
MYVISTA offers a range of paid extra services, including food delivery, laundry, as well as cleaning and maintenance at a nearby nursing home if residents need further assistance.
It can also support individuals who have federal government home care packages.
Residents can access health care and personal care at an independent medical practice, physiotherapy clinic with gym and hydrotherapy pool, pharmacy and hairdresser located on the ground floor.
MYVISTA CEO Irene Mooney said the complex was designed with positive aging in mind.
“We know that people love to live in apartments and love to make new friends in the complex, but importantly, they appreciate knowing that we will be here for them as they age so they can continue to enjoy life and maintain their independence “She said.
“We are all getting older and need more help in business. It’s great when family members can intervene, but it’s not always possible – or at least not every day.
“Often little things like being able to pass a hot lunch or wash and return a bulky sheet can significantly affect how you manage aging and maintain your independence, and all of that is definitely possible here at MYVISTA Mirrabooka.”
