These days nearly everybody in the country has a mobile phone and easy access to the internet.

​It's little wonder then, that as a society, we've never been more connected. Yet sometimes it feels like we've never been more isolated.

Ride the bus or train, and everyone's plugged into their iPods or glued to their screens. They're all too busy browsing and snap chatting to strike up an actual conversation with a stranger. And they're more interested in who's on Facebook, than looking you in the face and making eye contact.

At NLV, things are a little different. Our over 45's Resorts and Villages are places where people stop and give each other the time of day. Where a friend request means your neighbour asking you over for a drink or a BBQ, and where you may want to put half an hour aside to pop down to the letterbox-just in case you get pulled into the clubhouse for an impromptu cuppa.

People are drawn to NLV because they want to live in a warm, active and friendly community of like-minded people. People that look out for each other and actually care. The idea of retirement is turned upside down at NLV, with the average age of Lifestylers being 64 compared to 84 in traditional retirement villages.

NLV inspires a culture of 'neighbourhood' in every sense of the word. Unlike the train or the bus, you won't find blank faces or vacant stares. Instead you'll be met with a friendly wave and a cheery 'hello' in a place where it really does feel like everybody knows your name.
