Coming to Bougainvillea was one of the best moves of my life, as I have been very happy in my new home. I had looked at quite a few retirement villages and clearly remember thinking when viewing Bougainvillea, ‘I could live here’. It just had a lovely, happy atmosphere and even before I moved here, the staff made me feel welcome. It is very well managed, and the support staff are excellent. A lot of us, as we get older, lose confidence, but the staff here go out of their way to get to know the residents, they help us with all sorts of little things that worry us. At a happy hour a week ago, one of my fellow residents said to me, ‘This would be the best retirement village in Australia’. I do believe she was right.
