“We’ve gained so much peace of mind at St. John’s".
You have the freedom to manage your own lifestyle with a host of optional facilities and activities awaiting you at St. John’s Retirement Village. Located on the picturesque Mornington Peninsula at Somerville, the Village provides both Independent Living Units and Serviced Apartments set within a garden environment with the benefits of maintenance and security.
Our aim is to ensure your retirement is a carefree experience – a time to enjoy life and increase your independence.
“I go out more often now with the friends I’ve made here.”
Many people take the opportunities made available for social outings and on-site activities. Residents are welcome to participate as much or as little as they choose.
“I wish we had moved here sooner.”
A common sentiment among residents is that they wish they had moved to the Village earlier. Some people leave it too late to enjoy the full benefits of living in a retirement community. The sooner you make the move to St. John’s, the sooner you will experience the great benefits.
“The emergency call system has given me great sense of security”.
Security is a great concern in today’s society – the 24 hour emergency call system, together with security doors, smoke detectors, CCTV cameras and personal surveillance by our professional staff is very reassuring for residents and their families.
“I feel so much safer at St. John’s”.
Many residents gain peace of mind knowing their home is safe and maintained while they take extended time out to travel Australia or overseas.
“Moving made me take stock of the things I like doing”.
The residents’ Workshop is a place for all those handy people to meet; whether to mend a chair, make wooden toys, join in a team project or prepare their car, boat or caravan for a holiday.
Each unit has a front and rear garden area that residents may treat as their own. In addition, community garden beds are available for residents who love getting outside with nature to grow flowers or vegetables.
“We enjoy the Christian fellowship.”
The caring environment of St. John’s is based on Christian values. For those who wish to attend, a Fellowship group meeting is held at the Village on Sundays.
