FOR INDEPENDENT JEWISH RETIREES

Independent Living

Enjoy fully independent living in your own private apartment; be carefree with no home maintenance to steal hours away from your personal pursuits! Every village apartment at BBRV is designed for independent living. A maintenance-free lifestyle with added security and community is yours to enjoy!


When you choose to become a BBRV village resident, you will have your very own secure apartment within the village of your choice.

  • You have your own space, minus the hassle of maintenance or yard work. 
  • You can enjoy built-in safety and security measures reducing the worry associated with living alone.
  • You can access daytime support services of your choice, when you need them, from external, accredited service providers.
  • Village and Property Managers are on hand during normal business hours to help.

Daytime support services our residents bring into the village may include:

  • Meal support (e.g. Meals On Wheels)
  • Housekeeping services (e.g. laundry, home cleaning)
  • Personal care support (e.g. showering, physical therapy, medical and shopping)


Connecting you with services to help you live independently for longer

To help you enjoy independent living for as long as possible, we have built strong relationships with local accredited service providers such as JewishCare. We can put you in touch with JewishCare and other external accredited service providers if you require them.

Moving in?

To make you feel right at home, your apartment is specially refurbished and updated before you first turn the key. Our village together with our property managers will ensure that you’re happy and comfortable with your apartment well before you move into the village.


Need minor modifications to your apartment?

Want us to put up picture hooks, curtains, or perhaps something a little out of the ordinary?

Nothing’s a problem. We can assist you. Just ask a Village or Property Manager.


What about parking?

Parking spaces are limited and a waiting list applies. To ensure the safety of our residents, to park within the village grounds, residents must hold a current driver’s licence and be the vehicle’s legal owner. The vehicle must be insured (including third party damage). A small monthly charge applies to the allocation of a parking space in the village. Please direct parking related queries to our Village Managers.
