Frequently Asked Questions
Retirement villages are designed for anybody over 55 years old that no longer works a fulltime job. This means that you do not need to be completely retired - you can choose to continue working part time if you wish and still enjoy the benefits, community and retirement lifestyle of Oasis Peakhurst Retirement Apartments.
Australian retirement village operators can either be privately owned, not-for-profit or publicly listed companies. Each state is governed by its own Retirement Villages Act for the operation of villages within that state. Oasis Peakhurst Retirement Apartments is a family owned and run retirement village in Sydney that constantly strives to foster respect, dignity and friendships amongst the residents and team.
Retirement villages are designed for people over 55 and offer independent living and flexibility. They are ideal for those who require no or minimal assistance when they move in but prefer the security of knowing that help is available as and when the need arises. Residents live in their own home whilst enjoying the benefits of maintenance and a shared lifestyle with those of similar age and interest. In contrast, aged care facilities are primarily designed to provide a higher level of care and support, with residents requiring more services and support in their day-to-day life. Aged care is ideal for those who can no longer live independently.
