Working life is in the past and in front of you is relaxation, opportunities and free time, lots of free time, but how do you handle that? Retirement can be an interesting yet daunting prospect. With so much spare time, and not much direction or routine, often people who have just retired are left in a sense of limbo. Leaving your job is one thing, leaving your home where you may have spent the majority of your adult life is another entirely, and while you may experience feelings of unease, you can be comforted by the fact that you're not alone.
Many people experience these feeling which is why moving into a retirement village can offer unique and exciting opportunities including meeting new and interesting friends and neighbours, participating in a wide range of new activities and becoming part of a fresh community of support. There are many advantages to retirement villages can provide including nursing care and a wealth of activities, but the real strength in village life is the community and support available.
Retirement villages like Jemalong in Forbes will be a retirement community with a heart and soul. A community where neighbours get to know one another, where there are like-minded people and plenty of opportunities to socialise through a range of groups, clubs and outings.

The new 19 freestanding and well designed homes are step one of a three stage process to include larger homes that encourage more independent living for those who don't require in depth care. Due for completion in June 2020, Jemalong Sales Manager Jenny Thomas, said that the new homes will help retirees to downsize and start using their spare time to do the things they enjoy in life. "Forget about home maintenance, it's all taken care of, as are council and water rates and building insurance," she said. "Our support staff are here to make life as easy as possible".
All homes offer wide corridors for ease of access and an emergency monitoring call system should residents require it. Other features of the homes include reverse cycle air conditioning, rural views and an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge to celebrate modern living.
