Convenience, sophistication and comfort. Our Regis Corinthian Court Retirement Village, located just a short drive out from the heart of Townsville, boasts some marvellous facilities. On-site, residents can take advantage of our swimming pool, gym, salon and cinema. Our café also means that residents don’t need to leave the village to indulge in a delicious cup of coffee and has been the site for many delightful catchups between loved ones. Just outside the village are a wonderful assortment of shops, restaurants, a library, a bowling alley, and an aquatic centre, to name a few.
One of the most significant advantages of the Regis Corinthian Court Retirement Village is the ability for couples to stay together. We have many wonderful couples residing in the village, such as Charlie and Betty Channon, who have lived there for the past ten years and can’t speak more highly of their home.
Charlie and Betty were drawn to Regis Corinthian Court as they adored the central location and proximity to shops, doctors, and a hospital. The closeness and convenience of public transport, including the bus stop outside the village, was also a significant incentive, with the Regis bus also taking residents to the shopping centre and Transit Care each week.
As dedicated regulars to the weekly Happy Hour and monthly BBQs, Charlie is the resident cook, with Betty helping with the clean-up afterwards. The couple adores catching up with fellow residents and participating in all activities on offer. Their sociability is infectious and unmistakable, as Betty was previously a Committee Member, while Charlie was a previous Vice President of the Committee.
Describing the community at Regis Corinthian Court, Charlie and Betty are pleased to share that all residents are friendly, and everyone gets along well. They relish their view over the adjoining park where they sit together to watch various sports, their favourites being cricket, soccer, and touch football.
Never failing to take advantage of all the fabulous services in the local community, Charlie and Betty are inspiring gym patrons and foundation members of the Cowboys Leagues Club, RSL and Brothers. The couple also enjoys gardening at their son’s property in Julago, just south of Townsville, where they have many fruit trees and gardens in their watch. Keeping them young is their three grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, who are always a source of joy and never fail to put a smile on the couple’s faces.
To Charlie and Betty, home is where they feel most comfortable, satisfied, and safe. After spending 20 years in the Army and moving twelve times, the couple is ready to relax and enjoy being close to several wonderful neighbours and friends.
Charlie and Betty enjoy the friendliness at Regis Corinthian Court, where the Regis employees are “very approachable and do a great job. Nothing is ever too much trouble for them.” Charlie and Betty are just one of the many brilliant couples we have residing at Regis Corinthian Court. We’re fortunate to have them as part of the Regis Community.
