Testimonials from our wonderful residents
Thank you to those residents that offer testimonials about their experience living at Living Choice Glenhaven retirement village. We value what our residents have to say, and the Living Choice team work hard to ensure that we are exceeding resident expectations.
Here are some of the amazing testimonials we have received:
Jan & Ted Utick
Like many, we found the upkeep of our house, gardens, lawns and stairs, together with the maintenance, more difficult in the last few years.
The idea of moving into a Retirement Village was “not for us”. However, with time it became more feasible. Better to be able to make the decisions yourself rather than wait for them to be made for you.
After inspecting a number of villages with cramped accommodation, badly laid out villages with poor facilities, we were discouraged. Then friends of ours moved into Living Choice at Glenhaven. They invited us around for afternoon tea and to have a look at the facilities.
We were very impressed with the overall presentation and layout of the village, its facilities and extensive activities. We loved the well laid out villas with ample living and outdoor areas.
Since moving into our villa number 201 in November, we could not be any happier and have not looked back. The other residents are extremely friendly and have gone out of their way to make us feel welcome.
Thanks to Gail, Carlie and staff, who made our move easier by going out of their way in assisting us to overcome any hurdles along the way. In doing so the move into the village was a pleasant transition.
Laurie & Judy Pentecost
We are so blessed that we moved into the village. We love everything about our lives here and our neighbours and friends are just so fantastic, whilst at the same time respecting one’s privacy. At the moment we are buzzing with the excitement of Christmas. This being our first year that we have set up the Christmas lights in our new environment – it is like being a child again! What I think that I like best is that when we go away, we let the staff in the office know – they look after our mail. Then when we come home, we simply walk in our front door, unpack and that is all we have to do. No pool maintenance, gardening catchups or general maintenance.

Initially I had misgivings but after a few months, as I became familiar with all the amenities, my view changed completely. I now appreciate the many features of being a member of this village.
The residents are an interesting mixture of cheerful, caring people who band together to help each other and the staff will go out of their way to make our lives as comfortable and as relaxed as can be.
I was once advised that the most important consideration in selecting a retirement village was to make sure that it was a happy village – Living Choice Glenhaven certainly is.
Vic and Barbara Basil
Joy and I moved into Living Choice Village on 11th July 2012 after much searching and inspecting other villages within suburbs of Sydney.
Our two bedroom Oakhurst design villa leaves nothing to be desired in living comfort and design.
My wife describes the kitchen as a “Dream”.
We certainly have no regrets in our choice of Living Choice Glenhaven.
Administration is professional and staff and management are helpful beyond the call of duty. A minimum of fuss.
What immediately impressed us is the cleanliness and maintenance of lawns and gardens within and outside the property. The village is a real showplace.
Village day to day finances and social activities are controlled by a management team who are elected by the residents. These include President, Treasurer and numerous committees who are responsible for the running of all social and sporting events, ie Bowls, Billiards, Table Tennis, Majong, Tai Chi, Exercise classes, Gardening, Men’s shed, Pool, Outings, Trips etc, etc, etc.
Participation is purely optional as well as privacy if so desired.
President, Treasurer and Secretary are appointed for three years and all committee members are required to stand for re-election each year. Basically there is everything here to suit any resident or future resident’s desires.
We certainly do not regret leaving our Eastwood home of over 30 years to take up residence at Living Choice Glenhaven.
The companionship, our neighbours, the village staff, the village property, makes living here a real delight.
Kerry and Joy Rogers
We are Peter and Glynne Henderson and have been happily residing in our airy and light Villa for almost 3 years.
In that time we have come to thoroughly enjoy our new lifestyle because of the community camaraderie, general support, social activities and sporting activities, which has led to many new friends whom we admire greatly. Wonderful tales abound! Our Village Manager also helps to maintain the pleasant atmosphere that we have here.
We are both busier than ever, with both of us volunteering for Committee involvement, which keeps us active and mixing.
Our sons are very satisfied that we are here and thrive on knowing that we are happy. They enjoy visiting us and have a swim, a bush walk and admire the Residents’ Christmas decorations and well tended gardens. Must away as Happy Hour is on shortly.

Home is where the heart is and our heart is at living Choice Glenhaven.
Sandra and I inspected many N.S.W. villages prior to looking at the Living Choice concept and a lot of what we saw, was development which was nothing more than 120/130 square meter boxes.
On 21 February 2013 we attended a stage 2 open-day and were immediately taken with the warm reception we received from management and residents.
During the inspection of the recent constructed villas, Jane Fisher, the sales consultant, casually mentioned to us that she also had an “open plan” villa in stage 1 overlooking the tennis court and bowling green and although it was built two years ago it was principally brand new as it had only been used as a display facility.
The moment we saw this villa and walked through the door, we knew it was the concept that ticked all the boxes and would be our new home.
Living Choice Glenhaven was constructed with a vision for the future that will allow it to continue evolving and developing, thus ensuring Sandra and I move comfortably through our senior years with facilities and surroundings that suit our lifestyle and wellbeing.
David and Sandra Nelson
WOW! was the word our son-in-law used when he walked into our lovely villa for the first time and he is a man of few words and is very hard to impress! He thought the cathedral ceilings were amazing, the open plan of the living area superb and the attention to detail in the kitchen topped it off.
We love our new home and are so happy to be part of the Living Choice family. We left behind a very big home, pool and lots of garden and lawn. We have not looked back once – it was the best decision of our lives.
