The influx of retirees is also re-shaping the region, with the latest research revealing Sunshine Coast residents are on average, 44 years of age, seven years older than the average Australian.

Sundale, which supports the needs of the Sunshine Coast community via outstanding care and assistance services at its Retirement Communities and Care Centres, understands more than ever that couples are exploring their retirement and lifestyle options through the prism of future needs.

Younger Baby Boomers and those from Gen X, who are now in their fifties, want amenities that will evolve to suit their changing needs, including continuum of care. At Sundale, there’s no need to move if your needs change, with additional care, meals and assistance available in your own home, if and when you need it. Each of our Retirement Communities has a fully accredited on-site Care Centre.

To prepare for tomorrow, Sundale is looking at the future of senior independent living, retirement living and aged care with a renewed focus, so it can cater for the needs of the Sunshine Coast community for decades to come.

Sundale’s Sunshine Coast Retirement Living Offerings

Sundale has been a community institution on the Sunshine Coast for more than 50 years and blends independence, outstanding support, modern accommodation and lush gardens with caring, compassionate staff.

At Nambour, Palmwoods, Burnside and Coolum, Sundale provides its residents with an enviable list of amenities, including one, two and three-bedroom units, access to the region’s brightest health professionals, hobby sheds, a purpose-built clubhouse, a private cinema and an extensive library.

Sundale is also finalising plans for a stylish and contemporary Retirement Community and Care Centre at Tewantin called Bella Noosa – By Sundale. More akin to living at a luxurious resort than a retirement village, Bella Noosa will feature wide corridors, high ceilings, generous kitchens and private indoor and outdoor spaces which will make every day feel like a holiday.

Sundale is also exploring innovative options to redevelop its iconic Nambour Garden Village site to cater for the evolving needs of the Sunshine Coast community.
