Put simply, “Live Happy” is about creating an experience that helps you live a content and stress-free retirement. And at St Ives, that puts you at the heart of everything we do.
From the amenities and activities we offer, to the everyday engagement you have with our staff, we rate the success of our Villages on your happiness.
In fact, we’ve set ourselves a Happiness Score; it’s our benchmark for tracking how our residents are enjoying their St Ives lifestyle. They relate to the real, tangible benefits of retirement living at St Ives, and you’ll find out more about our Happiness Score below.
It’s not rocket science to say that being happy is the best way to live life. But there is a real science behind “Live Happy”.
To help us gain a better understanding of this science, St Ives partnered with Dr. Tim Sharp, Australia’s own Dr. Happy – founder of The Happiness Institute, Adjunct Professor, author and columnist. His research and experience with positive ageing has helped us identify and implement practical and proven initiatives across all of our Villages.
And it’s not just St Ives residents that are happier. If you want to get a head-start on a happy retirement, Dr. Happy has Happiness Tips you can start using today…
St Ives’ revamped Resident Survey is now used to capture the quality of life at all of our Villages. Touching on all aspects of Village life, the survey asks our residents to rate how much they agree with the following statements. We use these scores to identify the areas we can improve in.
