The Senior Newspaper reports –

“HELP is at hand for Victorian seniors weighing up their living options with the launch of an advice service to guide people through the retirement housing maze.

The state’s first service dedicated to supporting people in retirement housing has been set up by not-for-profit community group Housing for the Aged Action Group (HAAG).

Co-manager Fiona York said the Retirement Housing Advice and Advocacy Program offers help to seniors living in caravan and residential villages, retirement villages and rental villages across Victoria.

Residents must be 55 and over with some form of financial disadvantage or receiving a Centrelink benefit.  The service can also provide advice on housing options, including things to look out for when considering entering a retirement village.

“HAAG has been assisting residents in retirement housing for a number of years but this is the first time a specific program has been provided by government in the retirement housing space,” Ms York said.

“HAAG’s knowledge and expertise gained over 15 years of working directly with residents have made it an ideal organisation to take on this role.””
