The biggest retirement village myths busted

Feb 12, 2021

“Retirement villages are full of old people.” “Exit fees are a rip-off.” “You’ll be stuck in a tiny unit with no privacy.” Find out whether all those good (and bad!) things you’ve heard about retirement villages are true in this online masterclass with independent experts Jean Kittson and Rachel Lane, and also featuring Starts at 60 CEO Rebecca Wilson and retirement living expert Marilyn Graham.

If you’re thinking about downsizing in retirement, you’ll have heard all the wildest myths about retirement villages and probably been put off considering community living as an option for you. But operating on misinformation means you could be missing out on something great. That’s why we ran this Starts at 60 masterclass with the help of our friends at Aveo – to sort the fact from fiction and make sure you know what you need to know, in order to make the right choice for you.

If you’re interested in the exercises Rachel mentions in this video, they’re available in her book Downsizing Made Simple, available for purchase on our marketplace.
