It's no secret that Australia is experiencing a large increase in it's aged population. Responding to the needs of the elder community, Oak Tree Group has created an expanding portfolio of villages that stretches from Cairns to Hobart, and with strong demand for retirement communities in the New England region, The Oak Tree Group is aspiring to meet this demand with villages in Tamworth, Gunnedah and Armidale.
When the Oak Tree Group was founded just over a decade ago, the motivation behind the brand was never to be the biggest, but instead to be the best in the field of independent senior living. The organisation was established to provide quality and affordable retirement living options which would offer an easier, maintenance free way of life for seniors, but still remain within the financial reach of the average Australian home owner.
We are passionate about, and intrinsically linked to, regional towns and their people.Mark Bindon, Managing Director of The Oak Tree Group
Realising a unique and under-supplied opportunity in regional locations, the group has made this their focus, and have charged forward on what Managing Director of The Oak Tree Group, Mark Bindon, said was a busy, but deeply gratifying journey. "We are passionate about, and intrinsically linked to, regional towns and their people. I grew up in Armidale and my business partner's family are originally from Ingham," he said.
"All too often seniors are forced to relocate to bigger, metro cities to get the support they need because regional towns may lack the infrastructure. This not only breaks down a community, but puts unnecessary stress on the lives of our seniors who would rather stay in the places they love and know to be home".
Oak Tree Villages offer modern and purpose-built homes designed to help seniors age-in-place and live independently well into their retirement years. The attraction to community living is the affordable all-inclusive fees, the relief from property maintenance and repairs and of course the ability to lock the door and travel without the concerns for the property that has been left behind.
