Staff on site
Having a person you can trust available on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week offers an enormous feeling of safety and security for both residents of retirement villages and their loved ones.
In addition to security staff, most retirement villages have managers there to attend to any safety or security concerns you may have.
Best of all if you enjoy travelling – whether for the weekend to visit the kids or for a more extended vacation, you will know your home is protected while you’re away and everything will be just as you left it upon your return.
Personal alarm systems
All retirement village property owners take any threat to the safety and security of their residents very seriously.
For this reason many, including Aveo, have installed easily-activated emergency response systems which are monitored 24/7 and have buttons strategically placed throughout their available properties.
Some also offer personal protection devices that can be worn on the body, ensuring that in the event of a fall or medical incident, help is never too far away.
Emergency plan preparation
While the chances of an event such as a major fire or flood or some other catastrophic incident are extremely low, many residents draw comfort from the fact that most state governments require all retirement villages to have a tailored emergency plan.
The plan, which varies between individual communities, outlines what staff, residents and visitors should do in the event their safety is at risk.
It is important to remember that no retirement village can ever guarantee the complete safety of its residents.
But it is worthwhile doing your homework to ensure your chosen provider offers that feeling of safety and security just as much as you cherish it.
