Try before you buy: give your parents a free week in a serviced apartment

October 1, 2015 - October 31, 2015


Have your parents been toying with the idea of moving into a Serviced Apartment but aren’t sure if the lifestyle will suit them?

To help take the guesswork out of retirement village living, Stockland are now offering a one to two week trial stay in a Serviced Apartment. They’ll even provide all the usual services – absolutely free! *

A Serviced Apartment is the perfect retirement option if your parents want to continue living independently but would like a little extra help. They will have daily meals provided and help with cleaning and laundry – leaving more time for them to live the life they want.


Lorna Pyne recently moved into a Serviced Apartment at Salford Waters, “I wanted to go to a nursing home but my daughter thought I was way too young for that, she also didn’t want me to lose my independence. She recommended these Serviced Apartments where I would still have my own place and could drive to the shops, but would also have some assistance with my meals, cleaning and for getting around”.

“The apartment I am in now is the first apartment I looked at. As soon as we walked in I said, ‘I feel good here’”.

“Life is much better now. When I was in the granny flat at my daughters I was quite lonely. It was a very big property set quite far back from the road so no one would come past. And then on nights when she was out I got quite scared for my safety if anything happened”.

“Now life is very different. I have made lots of friends and I get to see them most days. I eat with everyone, take part in activities I feel very safe. I really love it here”.


With Stockland’s free trial stay your parents will have the chance to meet other residents and experience firsthand what life could be like in a retirement village. It’s a great way to find out if it’s the right place for them.
