Are you entering retirement? Perhaps you’re considering downsizing as you enter that next phase of your life? Stage 5 at Barwarre Gardens Retirement Village is now taking expressions of interest and it is perfectly located living, the way you like it.
When deciding on her future, Barwarre Gardens resident Joan Quinlan left nothing to chance. She wanted to be “on the flat, near public transport, near services and near shops”, and Barwarre Gardens ticked every box.
So confident was Joan that Barwarre Gardens was the place for her, she came in to have a look on a Wednesday and had her deposit down by that Saturday and she hasn’t once regretted her decision.
“I had seen too many older people leave it too long to give up driving or leave it too long to decide to move, and I’d sworn that wasn’t going to happen to me, so here I am,” Joan said.
Situated within walking distance of Marshall train station and just a minute or two’s drive from major shopping centres, Barwarre Gardens was developed and built by iconic Geelong community services organisation Karingal.
Joan loves the community feel of the Village and how you can get to know everybody in the community, which is something that just wouldn’t happen in a regular town. “It’s as though we’re all immediate neighbours!” she said.
The Village is opening its doors on Saturday 21 Oct0ber for an Open Day, where guests can view floor plans and take a walk through the gardens while having a chat to residents as well.
