Lorraine’s Story

For Lorraine and her husband Rob, moving to Thornton Park means enjoying their freedom, while knowing they have support if they ever need it.

“Rob and I had never really considered retirement living before we visited Thornton Park. We thought we’d be in our home until the end. As soon as I walked in and saw the bright, spacious apartments, I said to Rob, “I could live here.”
We thought about it for a short while and came back for a second look – by which time I was hooked.

“From the moment we moved in, I felt comfortable. I love the social aspect of life here. It’s a wonderful feeling, being part of a community. It’s so nice knowing we’ll always have someone to talk to.

“We have everything we need within easy distance – medical facilities, the hospital, shops and transport. We can walk to Penrith plaza and there are lovely places to stroll. One of the other things that really puts my mind at ease is that, if Rob or I got sick, there’s an aged care home onsite that’s really lovely. Knowing we have the option of additional support nearby, gives us real peace of mind.”

Sue’s Story

Sue moved into Thornton Park Retirement Village for a low-maintenance lifestyle, a comfortable home and friendly neighbours.

“I was living in Glenmore Park at the time, and even though I have a lot of friends, living on my own was lonely. I looked at a few places before I came here, just to check out my options – but everything else was just like big blocks of units. The apartments here are so nice – very spacious. It’s an incredible location – an 8 minute walk to the plaza.

“The main benefit for me has been the interaction. Whenever I go for a walk, there’s always someone to stop and have a chat with, or have a coffee. There’s a coffee shop here and it’s just lovely. When I lived on my own I was much more isolated. My kids said, ‘Mum, you’re buying the lifestyle’ – and I’m so pleased I did. Every time I walk inside my apartment I think to myself, ‘I love my home.’ It’s such a nice feeling.

“I really did the right thing at the right time. Friends all around me, a caring community and a convenient location – I couldn’t ask for anything more.”
