Margaret’s Story

2020-07-09T11:16:50+10:009th July 2020|Categories: Retirement Village|Tags: |

Margaret moved to Thornton Park to be closer to her family – but she wasn’t expecting her neighbours to become like family as well.   

“The moment I saw the lovely apartments at Thornton Park, I thought, yes, this is the place for me. I feel so secure here. My family come by every day and I’ve made some lovely friendships, too.”

“I feel so secure here. There’s a library and a beautiful café with great coffee. There’s even a nook for the grandchildren to play in. My neighbours have become like a little family. I couldn’t be happier.”

– Margaret, Thornton Park Resident

Lorraine and Rob’s Story

Lorraine and her husband Rob love living in Penrith – but it was Thornton Park’s resort-style living that took their experience to a whole new level.

“I’m a Penrith girl, born and raised. I don’t ever want to leave the area, so Thornton Park has been ideal. We have everything we need within easy distance – medical facilities, the hospital, shops and transport. We can walk to the plaza, which we do and there are lovely places to stroll. The village, when the building’s lit up at night, looks like a resort. It’s absolutely beautiful.”

“From the moment we moved in, I felt comfortable. It wasn’t just the building itself, which is lovely – or the style and the size of our unit, which I love. It’s the social aspect as well. It’s so nice knowing that as part of a community, we always have someone to talk to.”

One of the other things that really puts my mind at ease is that if Rob or I got sick, or our circumstances changed, there’s an aged care facility about two seconds away – it’s brand new and lovely. Knowing we have the option of additional support nearby, should we need it, gives me real peace of mind.”

Sue’s Story

2020-07-09T11:16:50+10:0012th June 2020|Categories: Retirement Village|Tags: |

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

“I bought a lifestyle, but the sense of belonging is priceless. Every time I walk inside my apartment I think to myself, ‘I love my home.’ It’s such a nice feeling. Whenever I go for a walk, there’s always someone to stop and have a chat or a coffee with. Before I moved into Thornton Park I was much more isolated.

“I really did the right thing at the right time. The main benefit for me has been the interactions. Friends all around me, a caring community and an incredible location – I truly couldn’t ask for anything more.”
