Five reasons to choose a BaptistCare Retirement Village

There are a lot of different retirement villages out there and choosing the right option can often feel like an overwhelming task for seniors ready to downsize and make a change. We often hear the journeys of our residents and how they came to choose a BaptistCare retirement community, it’s never been a decision that was taken lightly. We highly recommend you start with a list of all the key services and facilities you want in a retirement village before you even look at one. Consider your freedom, low maintenance living, storage space, activities, the quality of the facilities and care options as you age. While every list is different, our residents often state how BaptistCare has gone above and beyond their expectations for village life, and how they have made the right choice.


This article outlines just five of the many reasons why someone should choose a BaptistCare village over all the other options.


1. Convenient locations, close to amenities and public transport

BaptistCare retirement villages across NSW and ACT have been carefully curated with you – the retiree and resident - in mind. You'll experience the genuine atmosphere at our retirement living villages the moment you arrive, from engaging with our site managers through to viewing the grounds and facilities. All locations are close to local amenities and public transport. While each of our retirement villages are unique with the style of homes they offer and the onsite facilities - from onsite cafes to bowling greens, neighbouring golf courses, and even a signature vineyard - the common thread between them is a focus on the residents’ health and wellbeing.

2. A place that feels like home

At BaptistCare, we take pride in the facilities and services we offer, but it's our communities that make all the difference. We encourage strong, vibrant communities. Our residents genuinely look out for one another, and real community translates to true friendships. Our retirement apartments and units are refurbished by trades and updated as necessary.

Different sites have different offerings and availabilities from one, two, and three bedroom apartments that make the most of vistas, manicured gardens and grounds. Perhaps most importantly, it’s a space that frees up your time to do the things you love most, with gardens and maintenance taken care of, and neighbours looking over your place while you go on adventures. When you are at home, there are always activities and events, presided over by the residents themselves, and genuine opportunities to engage with those around you.

3. Meet your needs now and into the future

It’s important when downsizing to choose a place that can meet your needs both now and into the future. The conscious and continual improvement of our retirement villages means you’ll find your new home easy to maintain, secure and safe, and a space where you can enjoy complete peace of mind. Our Adaptive Living approach provides easy access to our home care and residential aged care should it be required in the future. At BaptistCare, you receive the exact amount of support that’s right for you, if and when you need it, which means you live independently for longer.

4. Flexible and smart financials

We know your financial situation is a significant factor in how and where you choose to live in your retirement. We also acknowledge that every person’s situation is unique, and so we’ve developed a range of easy-to-understand financial options to meet a range of needs and individual circumstances. What’s more, they are flexible. We offer a Loan Licence Agreement and flexible entry payment options. You can choose a standard option, or to pay more upfront for a full return, or perhaps you prefer to pay less on entry? Our contracts are completely transparent, you’ll never find hidden expenses.

5. Because we care

With 75 years of experience, we know what we are doing, and we’ve grown into one of the nation's most respected care providers. We support thousands of people across 75 locations in NSW and the ACT, including the aged and people living with disadvantage.

We have a reputation for outstanding facilities and quality of care, as well as our quest to truly make a difference, not just in our retirement living communities, but in all communities. As a not-for-profit, BaptistCare has been trusted by thousands of Australians across the retirement living, aged care and community service sectors since 1944. But it’s not just in our history, it’s noted every single day in the way we operate, the way we communicate, and the way we care.
