I envision that Retirement Villages in Malaysia, will be radically different than elsewhere in the world when the industry comes to blossom. One main reason for this is the extensive diversity existing here. Some RVs will be the most cosmopolitan while others may become culturally biased.
Furthermore the expected influx of permanent foreign retirees will add new dimensions to the already colourful scene.
When you decide to live in a retirement facility, all your personal yearnings, traits and inklings becomes prime concerns. Language, greenery, prayer, food, people and elsewise. Culture and religion become day-to-day matters. They can increase, not diminish. For others, the choice for diversity, multi-cultural aspects and globalism is uppermost.
The religious may want to live in a place that provide them easy access to their respective places of worship or to attend religious events. The green fingers will want to live in a community that appreciates nature so much more while writers and avid readers may want more quietness and soul at their RVs.
THE RETIRED GENERAL
Therein lies a group that stands apart from all. The retired military brass. A retirement village for the retired armed forces officers ensures their professional dignity lingers on. It is can be never easy to transit from being a 5-star general to someone in the street. A military retirement village or partially, ensures the chats and after dinner stories are relevant to those around.
This strikes a very personal chord for me. Ten years ago, I visited a customer at his home and saw his bed-ridden father in the living room attended by a male nurse. The father was a retired army general. If it was a military RV, he would have been in a much more dignified position, accorded some 'salutations' to say the least. I am sure these men of service would have live many, many more active years healthily.
RVs FOR DIFFERING SOULS
While every RV can have the same high standards of design, thought and build quality, each should pursue to be a different soul-space.
