FROM FARM LIFE TO RESORT LIVING
Ken and Marie have made the move from a property down south to a brand new apartment at Serene Retirement Living and are loving the resort lifestyle.
“We did our research on options for Over 55's living and we kept finding that Serene Living was the best choice. We love that it is brand new and has all the latest modern conveniences. We love it's proximity to the hospital, medical practices, beach, theatre and clubs.
All the staff and management are so sincere and their willingness to help in all situations is very comforting. We are both used to interacting with a wide range of friends and we have embraced the idea of community living.
Our daughters are very happy and impressed, and our son in Chicago descibed it as a ‘classy joint with a capital C!’ We had to make some adjustment to apartment living but we are now so happy we made this important move.”

RETIRED IN COMFORT AWAY FROM THE COLD
Residents Dennis and Irene chose Serene Living for an escape from the cold Canberra climate and to relax with comfort, ease and convenience.
“Our decision to leave Canberra was mainly to do with the climate, and Tweed Heads is such a beautiful part of NSW. The location of all services within easy walking distance was the major attraction, we have hardly used our car at all since moving in. The downsizing has given us a lot more time to spend on our leisure activities and not having to mow a lawn is a big bonus.
The rooftop garden and BBQ area are loved by all of our visitors and all of the facilities are kept immaculate, we really couldn't ask for more. We haven't had to give security a second thought since moving in and feel very comfortable in this environment. We have left all of our family in Canberra and we do miss them but we have made a bunch of new friends that seem like old friends already.”

We feel like we've won the lottery!
Residents Col and Vicki talk about why they made the move to Serene Living on the Coolangatta Tweed Coast ... and why they never want to leave.
“We made a joint decision many years ago that we would 'down-size' our house and sell the caravan when Col no longer wanted to ‘hitch up’. So, when that time arrived last year we decided to start looking for our next residence and the next chapter in our lives.
We had heard about Serene Living from several sources, including a former work colleague who had friends living at Serene. So, we came, we saw and we bought - and we have not regretted the decision or the move to Serene. We have a new lease on life, new friends and new activities to keep us occupied.
The beauty of Serene Living is you can participate in as much or as little as you choose. Everyone has a positive outlook on life and the staff are marvellous and very attentive. We believe we made the right decision as we feel very safe, secure and happy in our new residence and retirement lifestyle on the Tweed coast.”

HOORAY, HOME AT LAST AT SERENE
Kay always knew she would end up living in the Tweed/Twin Towns area. When it was time to sell her property last year, she felt it was the right time to move to Serene Living.
“I’ve lived in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, but I always knew I would end up living in the Tweed/Twin Towns area. When I decided to sell my property in Stanley Street last year, the first thing that came to my mind was Serene.
Rebecca was my first contact. My decision was made that day. I loved the unit Rebecca showed me and I just knew it was for me. Everyone on the staff was fantastic and helpful, as moving in is not one of the easiest of tasks we face in life.
I believe this is the best move I’ve ever made. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. My pictures are being hung in the next week or two. Duty Manager Dave, helped me last night with a ‘burnt toast’ problem :-) and I even have a new hairdresser Sharyn in the Serene Salon. Life is great at Serene Living."
