Event – Acacia on Lipsett Community Open Day – July 2017


Karidis retirement villages opening event

It was a fantastic turnout for our Retirement Village Open Day at our brand new Community Centre at Acacia on Lipsett. We were grateful to have many first time visitors joining us with their friends and family on a lovely sunny Sunday. Our guests enjoyed the captivating atmosphere of the stunning new Community Centre. They also had the opportunity to meet some of our residents and inspect Acacia Park’s well-appointed 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms villas and apartments available for sale.

The guests were welcomed from as early as 11am as the wonderful Blue and Black Notes Swing Band played throughout the day. Tony ‘Pilko’ Pilkington took the centre stage and provided valuable information about independent retirement living and how to make the move. Pilko addressed some of the common concerns that people have when considering a retirement village, such as downsizing, security and safety and finding like-minded people.

This created an open discussion platform for people to engage with others and talk about their assumptions on moving to a retirement village. Luckily some of our current residents were there to provide first hand insights about their experiences living in a Karidis retirement village.

Food was served and people seemed to enjoy the freshly baked cakes and scones as we had to order some new ones due to popular demand!
Afterwards the attendees had the opportunity to head to our business guest’s kiosks to get professional advice on finances, future planning, additional support options and so much more.

Our sales team had the chance to answer our guest’s questions. One of the questions that did popup a lot was about our Retire Assist option– an individually-tailored financial support option that can help you get into a Karidis Retirement Villages home sooner.

At the end the winner of the door prize was announced. The major door prize was generously donated by Phil Hoffmann Travel. We were pleased to know that all our guests were happy with the information they gained on this day and that they were able to make new friends with like-minded people.
