How do you know when it’s the right time to move to a retirement estate?

Tips to help you make the right decision for your situation 

When’s the right time to move to a retirement estate?

Well, one thing we’ve learned is that there are almost as many scenarios as there are retirees!

You might realise that your beloved family home suddenly seems too much for you to look after. Or perhaps you experience an unfortunate health event, whether large or small, that makes you think you might be more comfortable living closer to support services.

Other people start to feel uncomfortable leaving their house for an extended period while they go away on holidays – not the best feeling when you’re trying to enjoy a well-earned retirement!


Yet of course, there are also many positive reasons for moving to a retirement estate. From speaking to our Kensington Gardens residents, we’ve found that many people join us because of the positive benefits of living in a modern luxury retirement estate:

  • Access to outstanding facilities such as our Country Club
  • The opportunity to make new friends with like-minded people
  • Living in a brand new or beautiful pre-loved home
  • Access to a wide range of activities
  • Added convenience, security, and support
  • The increased peace-of-mind your family will feel

Of course, your reasons for moving will be completely personal to you. That’s why we think it’s important for your to experience our over 50’s lifestyle estate for yourself.

Discover our retirement estate at our Information Sessions

To help you get a feel for what it’s like to live at Kensington Gardens, we hold regular Information Sessions at our estates.

Unlike our Open Days, the small group setting gives you plenty of one-on-one time with the Kensington Gardens team. In a short presentation we’ll share information about:

  • Your lease options
  • Upcoming stages
  • Our company’s history
  • Your home design options
  • Our estate facilities

You’ll also discover why our residents pay so little operating fees – while still enjoying an outstanding lifestyle. 

This relaxed setting is ideal for getting a true feel for Kensington Gardens. There’s no sales pressure and absolutely no obligation – instead we focus on giving you the answers to whatever questions you may have.

And of course, while you’re here you’re also welcome to have a cuppa with some of our residents to get the Kensington Gardens story “straight from the horse’s mouth”!
