The village effect = longevity
Waterbrook has created its own ‘village effect’, increasing quality of life and also extending life – not only for its immediate residents but for the wider local community of retirees who are welcomed and catered for at Waterbrook.
Research has shown that seniors living in retirement villages have a greater social life and actually live longer than those who stay in the family home. Findings show that social planning should receive the same emphasis as financial planning ahead of retirement.
Some retirees are already aware of the importance of maintaining social connections post-working life and choose a retirement village lifestyle because it offers easy access to social connections and a range of activities.
