Downsize to a Bigger Life
You’ve worked hard for what you have and you deserve beautifully-designed, low maintenance homes with best-in-class amenities. A home and community that strikes the perfect balance between a social life and privacy; autonomy and activity. Take a peek over the fence!
If you’re looking to downsize and switch to a low-maintenance lifestyle, our community might just be the perfect opportunity for you. Lifestyle Communities offer over-50s the chance to explore a new lease of life after decades of hard work. The kids are all grown up and moving away, and life might be becoming a little lonelier in what was once a bustling household. Moving to a secure, welcoming community with manageable rates and added security can refresh your passion for adventure while offering much-needed stability in uncertain times.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re not a retirement village! When it comes to retirement communities, Australia is an understandably popular choice, however, there are few senior living options for those who still enjoy working. Within our communities, around 40% of residents still work, making us one of the few secure communities in Australia that offer flexible downsizing homes without the harsh income requirements and age restrictions of a retirement village. You can work and play while enjoying the savings you’ve freed up by moving to a more suitable location – simple.
Looking for Something More Than the Average Retirement Community?
Forget the stereotypes of stuffy retirement villages – we’re doing something completely different. By choosing to downsize with one of the communities we offer throughout our 25 retirement village across Victoria, you’d be moving into a space where you can enjoy the financial assets you’ve funnelled into your lifestyle over your working life.
Homeowners purchase their low maintenance properties that are directly managed by the community board, taking the pressure off you if something needs to be addressed. Our gardens are managed and maintained by our experience team of landscapers, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the environment without the pressure of constant maintenance.
A New Approach to Retirement Housing
Once our newest homeowners have decided on their dream new home, they enter a 99 Year lease for their site at an affordable weekly fee, which is then channelled back into the community to cover the operational cost of running the communities luxury amenities. On top of that, we’re happy to say that our site fee beats many competitors in affordability because it’s what our residents deserve.
In our secure senior living communities, your safety is our number one priority. Thanks to our team of unbeatable on-site community managers, you can enjoy a peaceful life without the stress of disruptive neighbours, theft, or discrimination. Our retirement housing communities are one of the most popular choices for women over 50, as there are opportunities for direct support and additional security that simply can’t be promised outside the community. You deserve to sleep well, knowing you’re being taken care of, and that is exactly what we do.
Downsizing to Upgrade Your Lifestyle: What Makes Our Retirement Homes in Melbourne, Australia Different
In the field of retirement homes, Melbourne is well-catered for. Yes, we would say that, wouldn’t we? But at Lifestyle Communities we really mean it. We looked at the whole concept of later-life living and discovered some positives weren’t being accentuated, so we set about changing that.
The way we see it, if you’re at or approaching that age, you’ve done the hard yards and deserve to reap the benefits. You don’t need a big place anymore, so why rattle around in yours and pay big bills while you’re at it? Why not sell up, release the cash that’s been tied up all these years and move somewhere more manageable?
The retirement community Melbourne, Victoria needs is one that involves high-quality homes with less maintenance to do, and someone to sort the garden out when you don’t feel like it. A sense of security that comes from being part of a gated retirement community. All the privacy you want, with the option of mixing with kindred spirits who, like you, feel the party is not over yet, you’ve just turned the music down a little.
This can be a golden era for you, and all you have to do is call us or fill in the online enquiry form. We’ll tell you all you want to know about our retirement homes in Melbourne and will help you find the right one for you whether you're looking for retirement villages in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, make the move to the east or explore coastal living. And you don’t even have to be retired: 55+ is old enough for us, so come on in and start living again.
Our Senior Living Communities are About Opening Up Opportunities

Why not see what our communities are like for yourself? We have a range of retirement units for sale in Melbourne and across Victoria. Get in touch today and begin your journey to a safer, happier life. It’s what you deserve.
We are NOT a Retirement Village. Far from it!
We have completely rethought what downsizing is all about and purposely done the opposite of what Retirement Villages offer. You have to see it to believe it!
Who lives in our communities?
Everyone! Our average age moving in is 65 years and getting younger whilst 20% to 50% are still working. We give you back valuable time with our low maintenance homes and a gym and pool onsite. And hey, life is short and your bucket list isn't going to tick itself off.
