What's On At Rylands Retirement Villages Hawthorn & Kew Melbourne

The First Steps to Village Life Seminar
Thursday 22 April at 10 am- Rylands of Kew


More Australians of retirement age and pre-retirement age are considering embracing this time and elect for a new lifestyle. Some may choose a ‘sea change’ or ’tree change’. Yet others may wish to downsize their home responsibilities, hand over some of the day-to-day chores, and move into a retirement village. Moving into a retirement village is an exciting time, with new friends and new possibilities. However, there are also a lot of decisions to be made and that can be overwhelming.

​There’s just so much to think about...What does retirement look like for me? When should I retire? Should I move after I retire or before? What will it cost? There is a mountain of information out there about retirement villages and it can be time-consuming to sort through it all. It’s hard to know what to look for and what questions to ask.


If you are at the very start of your downsizing journey, Rylands of Kew is delighted to invite you to their upcoming event, The First Steps to Village Life Seminar.

The purpose of this informative seminar is to provide you with an introduction to the world of retirement villages.

​Some of the questions that will be covered but not limited to are: 

  • Different types of retirement villages in Australia.

  • The difference between retirement villages and residential aged care

  • The legal and financial practicalities of securing a home in a retirement village

  • Types of support available in retirement villages for your property, your lifestyle, and your health and wellbeing


Following the seminar, you are invited to stay back, chat to our fellow residents who have chosen a retirement village lifestyle, participate in a tour of our pristine amenities and enjoy refreshments.
