The Retirement Village Industry In Australia: Evolution, Prospects, Challenges

An ageing society and the imminent movement of the buldge of the baby boomers into retirement age will see a dramatic increase in the number of retirees in Australia. Although most older people choose to age-in-place, many do choose to move, and a small but growing proportion, particularly of older retirees opt for the lifestyle of an independent-living unit in a retirement village environment. The Retirement Village Industry in Australia: Evolution, Prospects, Challenges describes the evolution and stucture of the retirement village industry and analyses its prospects and challenges. It presents the results of a survey of residents living in retirement villages across Australia, outlining the reasons why retirees move to live in a village. what services and facilites they use, what they like about living in a village, and what they think is important for a village to provide. This book is a must-read for those involved in the financing development and management of retirement villages, for residents of villages, for pre-retirees and retirees who may be considering the retirement village housing option, and for those involved in housing policy for older people in Australia. It will also be of interest to researchers and students concerned with ageing and housing issues.
