Top 5 Perks of Being a Grandparent

Being a grandparent brings so much joy into your life! You finally get to experience the great things being a grandparent has to offer, from watching your children become parents, to filling your home with the laughter of your grandkids, this stage of life brings with it fulfilling experiences and many satisfying firsts. Here are some of the other lovely things you can expect from being a grandparent!

Growing family

There will be a time in your life (probably when you’re in a big family reunion) where you realize how much your family has grown. When you become a grandparent, you have the privilege to witness the expansion of your family, and it’s a fascinating time to see how your genes have been passed down through the generations. As a grandparent, you can stand back and watch your past, present, and the future unfold!

Enjoying the company of grandkids

The love you have for your grandkids is simply different compared to the love you have for your own kids. Parenting is tough! It’s a balancing act between care, guidance, and discipline. With grandparenting, you get to shower your grandkids with unconditional love, without bearing the responsibilities designated to parents!

Peace and quiet

What was once a busy home is finally empty. While it may seem like a drastic change at first, you’ll slowly enjoy the peace that comes with having your home all to yourself. Now you can have more control over your space – with occasional messes from when your grandkids sleepover! But not to worry, Settlers have retirement apartments on the North Shore that allow you to have your personal space and still have grandkids to come over and visit!

Financial freedom

One of the best things about being a grandparent is you finally get to reap the rewards of your labour. Your retirement fund will likely bring you a much better financial situation, but aside from having money to spoil your grandkids, you also have the liberty to invest in a new home thanks to one of the premier lifestyle villages in Auckland.

Less responsibilities

While pre-retirement life overloads you with constant chores, tasks, and responsibilities, grandparenthood is all about having fun. At this stage, you have little to no chores, and there’s no need to run around to get your to-do lists done. All that is left is meaningful time spent with yourself and your grandkids!

A new home to welcome a new stage of life

As a grandparent who has gone through the many ups and downs of life, you deserve the best of everything retirement has to offer, including a luxurious home! At Settlers, you get to enjoy staying in a premium residence amidst tasteful nature with access to modern facilities such as a swimming pool, spa and gym, and more.
