Not even bad weather could stop almost 70 retirees from heading to InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort for a special ‘Tailor Your Retirement’ event with Kay McGrath.

Back by popular demand, the panel of independent experts and professionals covered a wide range of topics about retirement living including care options, resident services and amenity, contract options and financial benefits, leaving guests feeling confident and inspired about this exciting stage of life.

If you couldn’t make it on the day, here’s a quick snapshot of the insightful advice that was shared.

Tip 1: Making your investments work for you

According to the panellists, wealth is not about how much money you have in the bank. Real wealth comes from how you choose to live your life and whether you are putting time and money into doing what you love most.

Tip 2: Understanding retirement living contracts

Retirement living contracts can often be confusing because they are unlike anything you have experienced before. The panellists helped break down the Retirement Villages Act and explained how it actually works in favour of residents and protects people at every stage of their journey.

Tip 3: Care and support that works for you

Those that live the longest and happiest lives do so with a support network of five to six close friends. Simon Lockyer and the team at Five Good Friends follow this philosophy and say the secret to living your best life in retirement is building and nurturing connections.

After the panel discussion, retirees enjoyed mingling with other guests and meeting award-winning journalist and Reside Communities ambassador Kay McGrath over a delicious lunch.
