There are many reasons why seniors plan to move when they retire. Whether it is to be closer to their children and grandchildren, to scale down to a more manageable property, to have easier access to quality healthcare as their medical needs change… they are more likely to consider where to move than whether to move.


Prospective residents visiting the Great Oaks Retirement Village sales office in Constantia Cape Town often arrive with a firm mindset in terms of apartment vs cottage living, and are always delighted to discover that our apartments are spacious, pet-friendly and offer many perks.
