Care and Support During A Difficult Time
Losing a loved one is never easy, and for Jacquie, it was a heartbreaking experience. But it also highlighted a hidden benefit of moving into a lifestyle village.
Her husband, who was ultimately the reason that the pair moved into Lakeside Teman, unfortunately passed away less than a year after the move.
Jacquie says that without the community of Lakeside, she doesn’t know how she would have coped.
“If I hadn’t been at Lakeside, it would have been exceedingly difficult. Neither of us had extended family, so without the support and the care of the staff, management, and residents, it would have been a very different experience. I’m so pleased I’m here and not outside.”
Being surrounded by friendly neighbours – and having her beloved pet by her side – gave her the support she needed during one of the most difficult times of her life.
Jacquie’s experience highlights the importance of finding a good community and like-minded companionship in a lifestyle village, regardless of where you’re looking or when you’re thinking of making the move.
Because it’s this support and companionship, the relationships you form, that make the hard times better and the good times great.
