About

Living Choice

The first Living Choice village opened in Davistown, NSW in 1992 and, following its sale to Ian Tregoning and Graham Hobbs in December 2003, it is now one of the largest privately owned retirement village companies in Australia. Prior to entering the retirement living industry, Ian and Graham had extensive experience in the hospitality industry through their company EDP Hotels, formerly known as the Eureka Hotel Group, which was established in 1993.

Living Choice comprises 10 operating retirement villages – on the Central Coast, Sunshine Coast, in Sydney and Adelaide. Their 11th and 12th villages – Living Choice Parkwood on the Gold Coast and Living Choice Galston in Hornsby – are set to become further award-winning retirement destinations.

Recently, the company expanded to include Over 50s Lifestyle Resorts. Its first resort, Living Choice Mount Barker, is now under construction in SA and will be followed by a second Over 50s Lifestyle Resort in Murray Bridge.

The company also has residential terrace homes and apartments in Sunshine Cove, Maroochydore and is set to create its first master-planned residential community comprising approximately 900 home sites, at Palmview on the Sunshine Coast.

Ian and Graham are not only committed to creating highly desirable communities where residents can enjoy life to the fullest, they are also mindful that residents may need more care in the future. Living Choice Home Care was established in late 2017 and is now available at all their villages to provide a wide range of home care services.

Living Choice is a member of the Retirement Living Council and is a signatory to its Code of Conduct.  All Living Choice Villages are accredited under the Australian Retirement Village Accreditation Scheme (ARVAS) Standards.
