The Orchards Retirement Living

Premium retirement living in Doncaster East

As an inclusive community, The Orchards offers the opportunity to make new friends and provide some additional support. Among the many exceptional shared spaces at The Orchards is a café offering a range of delicacies, and a private dining room which can be booked by residents for special occasions with family and friends.

For less formal gatherings, the stylish club lounge and bar is always welcoming. You can enjoy an active retirement with a state-of-the-art indoor pool and well-equipped gym.

Living in Melbourne’s well-established eastern suburbs offers the best of both worlds – it’s leafy, relaxed and peaceful, yet everything you need is within easy reach, with the Melbourne CBD just 20 minutes away.

Frequently asked questions

Is moving to a retirement community the right choice for me?

Deciding to live in a retirement village is more than a real estate purchase. It’s a choice that’s about being part of a vibrant community, where people of similar ages and interests enjoy a fulfilling and diverse lifestyle. Residents experience independence and comfort, with lasting social connections all delivered around a range of facilities and services that have been designed with you and your needs in mind.

Is a retirement village for me?

The only requirement to live in a retirement village like The Orchards is that residents are over the age of 55. You don’t have to be retired; in fact, some residents continue to work part-time, and in some cases, full-time. While most retirement villages offer a range of activities and social events, you’re free to choose to participate as much or as little as you like. It’s important that you find a retirement village that’s the right fit for you.

What shared spaces are available to enjoy?

Residents at The Orchards can enjoy a new community centre which is available for everyone to use. In this shared space you’ll find the gym, hair salon, swimming pool, club lounge and bar, reception, alfresco area, library, restaurant, private dining room, consulting rooms and multipurpose room.

Can I have visitors, such as my grandchildren come and stay?

Your villa is your home and it’s your choice who you invite to stay. You are welcome to bring your visitors to enjoy all of the facilities. For longer term stays however, The Orchards does have restrictions which are in your contract and residents are encouraged to discuss their options with the Village Manager.

Can I get support and care if I need it? 

A range of services, such as assistance with showering and dressing, personal care, medication supervision, villa cleaning and food preparation are available for a fee. If you would like any of these services, specialist Baptcare staff members are available to discuss your needs.

Can I have a pet? 

Your pet is a beloved member of your family, so of course you are welcome to bring it.
