The important things in life are clear as day here at Beauty Point.
During the current environment and the changing restrictions, we realised that being able to be close to and interacting with people is important. Human connection, it is the one core human need we have all grown up with yet, it’s the one fact of life we haven’t paid a lot of attention to. At the height of ‘quarantining’, it was senior Australians who felt that more acutely. Not only were people not able to get out to socialise and some were reducing their home care supports, but families and friends were making fewer visits as well.
A restaurant chef; part of your new ‘normal’ retirement.
Human connection. It’s the one, core human need we’ve all grown up with yet, it’s the one fact of life we haven’t paid a lot of attention to. Coming out of self-isolation and social distancing, however, we’re realising that being able to be close to and interacting with people is what we’ve missed most.
With life coming back to ‘normal’, the important things in life are clear as day.
The signs are slowly beginning to appear that the time is coming when the lockdowns, self-isolation, quarantining, staying at home and social distancing may finally be over for retirees. So, when life is back to normal, one particular question arises. What will the new ‘normal’ be? What will it look like? And, more importantly, how will it be?
We have been Covid-19 free throughout, and this is how we are keeping safe.
Now that the new ‘normal’ is appearing as restrictions are being reduced, we welcome you back to Beauty Point Retirement Resort, we have been Covid-19 free throughout, and this is how we are keeping safe.
