Meet Keith & Margaret

“It’s a big family atmosphere. That’s the greatest thing about being here.”

Keith & Margaret’s Story

Keith and Margaret downsized from a large home and garden. “We were kind of pioneers. We were the first residents in here. We wanted to travel and not have the responsibility of all the home maintenance.” In their time at the estate they have been very active members of the community and have seen it grow around them. “There is something to do every day. You never get bored. There are always friends about.” Having more time free has also allowed them to pursue other community activities outside of the Estate. “We volunteer at Meals on Wheels as well.”

Meet Geoff & Leslie

“It’s a wonderful lifestyle. You are in a caring community.”

Geoff & Leslie’s Story

Geoff and Leslie are tree changers deciding to leave the city and return to the country “The city is a young person’s environment. Older people just become invisible. We had friends in Griffith so we thought it would be a nice place to retire to.” Although Geoff and Leslie are not yet fully retired, they still enjoy the many activities on offer. Leslie loves to paint and do art in the community centre. “We are also very involved in the community vegetable garden. You can socialise as much or as little as you like. It’s fun.”

Meet Mary

“I feel like I am on holidays all the time.”

Mary’s Story

Mary struggled to cope looking after the family home along with her unwell husband. He suggested they look at Griffith Retirement Estate but unfortunately passed away before moving in. Mary followed through with the move “Downsizing was the best thing I ever did.” Mary loves the lifestyle she has found at Griffith Retirement Estate. “It’s like I am living in a resort. I love the atmosphere. I have made terrific friends”. Mary also loved that the Estate was pet friendly and was able to bring her beloved cat “I didn’t want to leave her behind. It’s a very big plus.”
