Retirement is a new phase in your life, and at Blue Care we want you to continue to live life your way, enjoying the space, security and freedom to concentrate on the things you cherish. When you live in a Blue Care retirement village, you can lock up and leave, with the peace of mind that your home is safe and secure – giving you the chance to travel or visit family and friends – worry free.
A retirement village is a community offering a range of accommodation, services and facilities, where most residents are over a certain age and retired from full-time work.
At Blue Care, our villages are designed to accommodate different retirement lifestyle preferences. They range from comfortable one and two-bedroom units in our traditional retirement villages, to premium resort-style homes complete with designer kitchens, modern bathrooms and beautifully landscaped gardens. At some villages, we offer serviced apartment-style accommodation, which includes laundry, meals and room cleaning.
We have more than 30 retirement villages across Queensland and we maintain close connections to the communities in which we operate. All details of accommodation, services, and facilities are listed in the Village Comparison Document for each site. Find a Blue Care retirement village near you.
Blue Care’s retirement villages welcome a range of people aged from 65 – residents are often in their early 70s – from all walks of life, who enjoy the community atmosphere of living among their peers.
Our retirement villages might suit people thinking ahead to a time when they or their partner might need extra support, as many are located close to Blue Care residential aged care accommodation. Providing the care needs are equal (as assessed by My Aged Care’s Aged Care Assessment Team), Blue Care will preference a retirement village resident who wishes to move into residential aged care.
Our retirement villages generally welcome pets such as house-trained cats and small dogs, at the discretion of the village manager.
Blue Care’s retirement villages provide quality accommodation and access to home care services including help at home, personal care and nursing should you ever need them. If you are already receiving home care services under the Commonwealth Home Support Program or a Home Care Package, you can still access all your services when you move in.
Retirement villages are about enjoying the fellowship of a community. Residents benefit from the social opportunities of a village hub, which might include a cafe or licensed bar, TV rooms, libraries and sometimes a putting green, gym or swimming pool. In some villages, organised activities and outings are also available. For details of facilities, check the Village Comparison Document for each site.
Retirement villages offer maintenance-free gardens and community areas, and at Blue Care, maintenance inside your home is also part of the service. So, if a lightbulb needs changing, it is done promptly at no extra cost.
All our villages have a 24-hour emergency alert system that is monitored on site. We have staff available 24/7 to respond to an initial emergency and escalate the response as required.
Most of our retirement living villages are ideally located within close proximity to public transport and shopping centres, hospital, medical, sporting and social venues.
We have created a guide to the retirement village costs, and you can see detailed costings in the Village Comparison Document for each village.
