Helping You Navigating Your Retirement Journey

Feeling overwhelmed by the multitude of retirement living options throughout Australia? Don’t worry, because Riverbend is here to guide you through this important journey. If you’ve already made the significant decision to downsize from your family home, you’re well-prepared to make the next big step.

Choosing Your Ideal Environment

The first step is to envision your perfect living environment. Whether you’re drawn to the soothing ambiance of the ocean, the tranquillity of the countryside, or the vibrant pulse of city life, Riverbend caters to all preferences. You should also consider factors such as proximity to family, access to medical services and amenities that align with your lifestyle. Retirement living is constantly evolving, and we are at the forefront of this change.

Our over 50s lifestyle community offers the convenience of city living with easy access to restaurants, cultural hotspots and much more. If you’re seeking serene landscapes, Riverbend’s idyllic setting is ready for you to discover.

Designing Your Retirement Lifestyle

Visualise your typical day in retirement. Do you see yourself leading an active lifestyle filled with sports and social events, or would you prefer peaceful moments tending to your garden? Reflect on how you wish to spend your time and rest assured that we can support your interests.

Whether your passion lies in swimming, gardening or socialising, our projects are designed to cater to your needs. You can engage with our current residents to gain insights into the community’s social dynamics and the range of activities on offer. Their firsthand experiences can provide invaluable perspectives on life at Riverbend.


Embracing Financial Transparency with Riverbend

Understanding the financial aspects of retirement living is crucial. While it’s advisable to seek professional guidance from lawyers or accountants to understand the specifics of any contracts, Riverbend aims to make this process as straightforward and transparent as possible.

Unlike many retirement villages, Riverbend does not charge any entry or exit fees, making the transition smoother and more affordable. We take care of all council fees, relieving residents of this common financial burden. Furthermore, we ensure that there are no hidden costs by eliminating deferred, refurbishment, and establishment fees.

Purchasing your new home at Riverbend is even more cost-effective as there is no stamp duty involved. When you decide to sell, you get to keep all your profits, a benefit not commonly offered in many retirement villages. We charge a small weekly site fee, which could potentially be offset by government rent assistance (eligibility should be checked). At Riverbend, you only pay for your individual metered usage of utilities, ensuring fair and transparent billing.

These distinctive advantages make Riverbend an excellent choice for those seeking a worry-free, financially sound retirement living experience. We believe in providing our residents with a clear understanding of their financial obligations, allowing them to make informed decisions and enjoy their retirement journey with peace of mind.

Embrace Your Retirement Adventure

Choosing the right retirement village is a significant milestone that warrants careful consideration. By prioritising your preferences, understanding the financial implications, and seeking professional advice, you can confidently embark on this new chapter of your life. At Riverbend, we’re dedicated to helping you find a retirement sanctuary where you can flourish and savour life to the fullest. Just contact us for more information and we will be happy to assist you.
