Visiting Juniper Elimatta Retirement Living Complex and not wanting to leave has become a very common occurrence for visitors.

For Rose-Mary Lockwood, it was her husband who spotted the ‘Villas Available’ sign that drew them into the village.

“My husband was on his morning bike ride, and he rode past the entrance and told me that he found the perfect place for us to live,” Rose-Mary said.

The next week, Rose-Mary and her husband viewed a three-bedroom villa and 24-hours later they applied.

“Our house was getting too hard to manage, and as soon as we stepped through the doors at Elimatta we felt at home. The   was beautiful, and it had an amazing community spirit,” she said.

“The people here are so nice and caring; we are like one big family. I now live alone, and my neighbours always look out for me. I feel so grateful. I know I am safe and secure here too, which means a lot to me as I get older.”

For Gail and Reg Kerridge, it was love at first sight when they viewed Juniper’s stylish new Orana apartments within the same complex.

“We came and viewed the apartments with our friends and we both ended up moving here. Everyone was so friendly, and we were blown away by how much was on offer within the facility, and how good the location was. It is all we wanted and more,” Gail said.

Gail and Reg are also deeply involved within the Juniper community and participate in exercise classes, lawn bowls, walking groups, and games nights, and Reg is now the Pool Volunteer.

“It’s a dream living here. It’s also so easy for us to go on holiday, all we have to do is lock up and leave. We no longer have to worry about security, everything is so secure. Also, happy hour goes for four hours here!” said Reg.
