Independent Living Units (ILU)
The City of Charles Sturt manages a number of retirement complexes throughout our area. The retirement complexes are vibrant communities that welcome residents and encourage people to connect and interact with each other.
To live in an ILU, residents can purchase a licence from Charles Sturt to occupy a unit. This means that once you have purchased an ILU, you have a lifetime right to occupy the unit, but do not own the actual bricks and mortar or land.
The Retirement Units are similar to home units found in the general community and some retirement villages. They are available to older people who continue to maintain an independent lifestyle.
A monthly maintenance fee, reviewed annually, covers repairs and maintenance of buildings and plant, gardening. Independent Retirement Living Units (self care) offer maximum independence, privacy and security. Residents are responsible for their own personal contents insurance, public liability insurance and utility accounts (electricity, telephone). In some units the resident is also responsible for the payment of Council and Water Rates.
General unit description
Most units have two bedrooms. Curtains, blinds, light fittings and carpets are provided in units as well as flyscreens and security doors. A reverse cycle or split system air conditioner is provided in each unit and there are built in wardrobes in most bedrooms. Carports or garages are available with some units. Residents furnish their own units and are responsible for their own laundry, cleaning their unit, meals and shopping.
Residents are welcome to use the community facilities available on site. While common property is maintained by Council the resident is responsible for the rear yard of their unit. Opportunities exist for those interested in gardening to ‘adopt’ a garden area adjacent to their unit.
