10 reasons to retire at The Rise

March 2021

The Rise at Wood Glen offers luxury retirement living, beautiful bushland views, a coastal lifestyle and in-home care services when and if you need them.


1. Beautiful outlook

Tucked away amongst lush greenery at the base of Kincumba Mountain, The Rise at Wood Glen is immersed in nature and is just minutes from the sparkling sands and crystal-clear waters of the NSW Central Coast.

The Rise offers an elevated and private position, and each apartment’s floor-to-ceiling windows capture expansive bushland views from every angle.


2. Luxury apartments with age-friendly design

The Rise offers spacious and beautifully appointed 2 and 3-bedroom apartments, with spacious balconies, floor to ceiling windows and open-plan living. Each residence is pet-friendly and filled with natural light and high-quality fittings every bit as impressive as the view. The free-flowing floorplan between the kitchen, dining and lounge room makes living a breeze.

Apartments have been thoughtfully designed for positive ageing, offering a low-maintenance lifestyle and age-friendly layouts to suit changing needs. This includes a range of features such as wider corridors and doorways, step-free shower recesses and reinforced bathroom walls allowing for the safe installation of grab rails if needed in the future.


3. A central and connected location

A favourite holiday destination, NSW’s Central Coast is known for its beautiful seascapes and natural, lush bushland. It is also a hub for cafes and restaurants, bars and medical services along with countless entertainment and sporting events. And Erina Fair shopping centre is located directly across the road from the village!

The Rise is close to all of the action, but tucked away in a private, elevated position overlooking the peaceful greenery. So whether you like to walk, take public transport, or drive, you’ll find everything you need on your doorstep:

  • Erina Fair (shops, cinemas and medical centre) – 7 minute walk
  • Terrigal Beach – 8 minute drive
  • Avoca Beach – 15 minute drive
  • Kincumba Mountain Reserve – 18 minute drive
  • Sydney – 90 minutes by train
  • Gosford Hospital – 18 minute drive
  • Newcastle Airport – 1 hour 20 minute drive


4. Social connection

Retirement is a time for friends, family and like-minded neighbours. Research shows that social connection matters, especially as we age. Not only does it delay health problems related to ageing, but it provides us with happiness, security, support and a sense of purpose.

Here, you’ll be part of a welcoming and close-knit community and can get to know your neighbours over a drink on the terrace, or by taking part in one of the regularly organised social events. But you can also relax in privacy and be involved in as little or as much as you want.

5. Stay active and explore

Wood Glen village has everything you need to keep active, social, and independent. First-class facilities include the on-site age-specific gym, easy access to tailored exercise programs or group fitness classes, consultation rooms for health professionals such as doctors and physiotherapists, and an indoor pool and spa.

In addition, you’ll enjoy first-class multi-purpose recreation facilities including a residents’ bar and dining room, world-class village bowling green, a fully equipped BBQ area and of course the beauty of the surrounding bushland at every step.

While our shared amenities offer a great range of services and activities, the village bus is perfect if you want to explore further afield with regular trips to local retail and entertainment hubs.


6. Privacy

Even though it is central to everything, The Rise boasts a private and elevated aspect. It is tucked away in Wood Glen village, away from busy roads and main tourist areas. With its enviable position looking out towards the Erina Valley bushland, you can rest assured that your views will never be built out.


7. Safety and security

Along with this privacy comes safety and security. Live worry-free in your retirement at The Rise, with all the services and facilities for day-to-day living on your doorstep. The vertical design and secure access gives you the freedom to lock up and leave without a worry.

What’s more, Wood Glen village offers a strong sense of community, giving The Rise residents the opportunity to stay connected to people who share common interests every day.


8. Contract certainty

At RetireAustralia, we understand that retirees want financial clarity, certainty and confidence – particularly in a time of instability. That’s why The Rise sales contract offers a simplified and clear financial process.

We want our residents and their families to have certainty from the very beginning, so we specify – upfront – what the costs are, and what they cover. From the day you move in, you will know the outgoing payment you will receive when you leave the village.

The monthly service fees are charged on a cost-recovery basis only and cannot be increased more than the Consumer Price Index without the approval of village residents.


9. Care when you need it

You can access a range of flexible, tailored care services, delivered in your own home by the trusted RetireAustralia team. Our Home Care service makes life a little easier and gives you peace of mind that, should your needs change, you can continue to stay safely in your own home for longer.

Our care team can help with household chores, meal preparation, showering, dressing, and medication support, to name a few. Care is tailored to your individual needs and funded privately or through access to an approved government funded Home Care Package (HCP).

We can even help you navigate HCP approval through My Aged Care, the government assistance platform.


10. Support

The Rise encourages positive ageing and has been specifically designed to allow residents to live independently for longer. As well as the support of a connected community, there are team members on hand if you need extra assistance. Rest assured that you will have support at your fingertips with an on-site Village Manager, visiting allied health professionals, and in-home care services.


The best way to find out why The Rise is perfect for now, and ideal for later is to visit, meet our team, and tour our display apartments.
