Here is your Seniors’ living guide to some of the best aged care facilities and services across the Hunter Region. You can also check out this Seniors Feature from page 18 in our 4 February edition.

Eleebana Shores

With its luxurious designer villas and apartments, world-class recreational facilities, tranquil rural setting close to local beaches, cafes and commercial centres and caring community heartbeat, Eleebana Shores is the new benchmark of retirement living in Newcastle.

Plus, our newly-completed, breathtaking apartments are a whole new level of luxury. No words come close to describing these last few ‘Super Luxury’ apartments that are now ready for viewing and sale.

Our newly-completed Display Apartment says it all – unmatched spaciousness and style, incredible quality in every detail, and absolute luxury at every level.

It’s time to downsize and up dream. Set in beautifully landscaped gardens, surrounded by hobby farms of Newcastle, it’s hard to believe you’re just four minutes by bus from the major shopping centre of Macquarie Fair and the lakeside dining of Warners Bay. Just minutes from your door, you’ll find local medical centres, top hospitals and major shopping complexes.

It is also close to local parks, reserves, lake-side walking tracks and local fishing areas. The local bowlo, Belmont Golf Course and Lake Macquarie Yacht Club are just down the road. There are numerous probus clubs, mens’ sheds and churches within easy reach.

And the beautiful beaches of the Lake Macquarie area are less than 15 minutes away.

Ingenia Lifestyle

We naturally assume that having more money is the key to a happier and healthier retirement.

But research shows that another factor can make a big difference: the type of community in which we live.

Ingenia Lifestyle recently conducted a resident survey that found 90 per cent of residents had a positive, or very positive, outlook on life.

Just over half said they regularly attended Ingenia social events, and 91 per cent said they felt a sense of connection within the Ingenia community.

See how community living can benefit your lifestyle at the Ingenia Lifestyle Sunnylake Shores Summer Open Day on Saturday 13 February.
