Home is as good as a holiday

Summertime in Australia means holidays – long days, lazy afternoons, sun, fun, and relaxation. But as cost-of-living pressures continue to bite and the lingering effects of the pandemic make themselves felt, getting away for a holiday internationally or interstate may seem like it’s out of reach. There is a solution though – let’s explore how a TriCare Retirement Community can have your summer holiday wishlist sorted!

Summer holiday wish #1: Beachside Buzz

If your idea of a relaxing holiday includes long walks on the beach with the breeze in your hair, a retirement community in a coastal location could be the perfect way to live your holiday dream all year round. Our Retirement Communities on the Gold Coast, and in Hastings Point in New South Wales, boast friendly villages with easy access to world-renowned beaches, and all the associated health benefits of a sea-change lifestyle. Imagine waking up in paradise every day, without ever having to worry about a check-out date!

Summer holiday wish #2: Getting away from it all

It’s not just the sun-bunnies who will find what they’re looking for in a Retirement Community setting – whether you enjoy the quiet serenity of the countryside or simple suburban living, a retirement village is a community in and of itself. Our locations are designed to be friendly, self-contained neighbourhoods, where security and privacy are standard. When you come home to your independent living unit, you can shut out the worries of the world and enjoy the peace and quiet of your own space. And if you do choose to go travelling on an extended holiday, you can rest assured that your home will be looked after by our community’s on-site team.

Summer holiday wish #3: New experiences, new adventures

One of the main reasons we travel is to enjoy new experiences and try something new. If this lifestyle appeals to you, a vibrant and active Retirement Community will reward you tenfold! As well as providing the perfect opportunity to widen your social circle and meet likeminded new friends, retirement villages are designed to provide entertainment and fresh experiences to residents all year round. That means pools, spas, on-site gym, regular social gatherings, and other facilities that make an active and healthy lifestyle easy to maintain. Whether you choose a coastal, city, or country location, you will have all the opportunities of a holiday resort right on your doorstep, and new companions to explore them with.


Summer holiday wish #4: Bang for your holiday buck

While holidays are enormous fun, they can also take a hefty toll on the finances. The beauty of Retirement Community living is that for an affordable price, you can make a relaxed, stress-free lifestyle a permanent fixture. With regular home and garden maintenance taken care of in our villages, and free access to communal facilities such as pools, gym, library, and social activities, you can save your money for those things that will make your retirement dreams a reality.

Summer holiday wish #5: Stress less

The aim of a summer holiday is to relax and let go…but that can be easier said than done. What with the planning, booking, travelling delays and restrictions, finding a pet minder and unexpected financial surprises, holidays can turn out to be more stressful than staying home! So why take on extra stress when you can benefit from a worry-free lifestyle all year round? As well as the facilities and friendships already mentioned, a Retirement Community is perfect for those who want to reduce their mental load and hand off the mundane tasks to a third party. Sick of deciding what to cook every night? Enjoy fresh, gourmet flavours at our onsite café or restaurant. Don’t want to bother with mowing and maintaining a yard? You can have it taken care of. After all, a change is as good as a holiday, and a change to Retirement Community living comes without the stress of travel delays!
