“We’ve come to The Henley for a future.”

Every time family and friends visit them at The Henley, Phillip and Jill are reminded of the appeal of their wonderful ocean-side home and community.

“Since we have settled here we have had numerous visits from friends and relations and they all say The Henley is the best decision we could have made,” Jill says.

Approaching their nineties but still in remarkably good health, the couple lived happily in nearby Runaway Bay for about 15 years after leaving chilly Canberra for warmer climes. In March 2015, as the pair considered downsizing, an invitation fortuitously arrived in the mail offering a tour of inspection of The Henley. They didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to see the luxury lifestyle resort.
“Curiosity prompted us to take a look. We were instantly impressed with the unique concept of retirement living and the range of services available,” says Phillip, who is conscious of the couple’s advancing years. They value the availability of 24-hour care and support if required, along with access to on-site medical staff and wellness programs.

Phillip says he and his wife also appreciate the friendly and active environment at The Henley.

“As soon as you enter the ground-floor foyer you experience the warmth of the welcoming staff, and there is so much to choose from the daily calendar of social activities.”
