Retiring on the Central Coast

The Central Coast is home to beautiful waterways and beaches and has a relaxing coastal feel,  whilst still having access to high-quality services and amenities. It’s for these reasons, plus many more, that so many people choose the Central Coast for their retirement. In this article, we share our top tips and benefits of making a sea change and choosing your option for Central Coast retirement living.

Getting to know the community 

If you’re moving from Sydney or further afield you may want to dive right in and meet some new people. A benefit of moving into a retirement living apartment is that while you’ll maintain your independence, there is already an established community with organised events and outings. With plenty of opportunities to socialise, you too will soon be part of the local community. You can also get involved in local organisations, including swimming groups, lawn bowls and more. The Central Coast is also home to stunning golf courses, with our local Gosford Golf Club less than 2km from Evergreen Life Care. 

You might be interested in art classes, which take place at the local Regional Art Gallery or perhaps you’d like to join a walking group and explore our local trails. The stunning grounds at Evergreen Life Care offer direct access to Narara Creek and Brisbane Water waterways with beautiful flat walking paths to enjoy. 

Nearby services and amenities

It can be hard to leave your long time GP, but your records and medical history can be easily transferred to your new doctor on the Central Coast. Often your GP will be able to recommend a new doctor for you or ask the friendly team at your new retirement living residence for the best local doctor. Gosford Hospital and Gosford Private Hospital are centrally located and easily accessible, and offer most services and specialists as well as high quality care. 

Benefits of choosing a retirement village on the Central Coast

Less than 80 minutes from Sydney, the Central Coast is emerging as an idyllic place to retire. It offers plenty of local cafes and restaurants, beautiful beaches and waterways, walking trails and most importantly, a welcoming and inclusive community. It’s the perfect spot to relax and enjoy your retirement.
