RE­TIRE WITH PEACE OF MIND

The Courier-Mail - Home - - RETIREMENT LIVING - EMILY BLACK

Pro­vid­ing in­de­pen­dence and choice for aged care res­i­dents is the mantra for Sea­sons Aged Care’s lat­est $115 mil­lion devel­op­ment in Sin­na­mon Park.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Nick Loudon said they had a “truly unique” ap­proach to life­style and care at their new com­mu­nity. The devel­op­ment opened last month, and Mr Loudon said it promised to take the Bris­bane-based com­pany’s aged care and com­mu­nity liv­ing to the next level.

“We’re not about just sell­ing bricks and mor­tar here,” Mr Loudon said.

“While the com­mu­nity build­ing it­self is im­pres­sive, the real dif­fer­ence is our age­ing in place ap­proach that puts res­i­dent in­de­pen­dence and choice first.

“We of­fer a home-like en­vi­ron­ment where our res­i­dents can live ex­actly how they like and keep do­ing the things they love, just as they al­ways have, it’s their own home. When life starts to get harder, we of­fer per­son­alised sup­port from low to high care, in­clud­ing de­men­tia and pal­lia­tive care, 24-hours a day, seven days a week.”

He said the com­mu­nity brought to­gether life­style benefits of re­tire­ment liv­ing with high-qual­ity per­son­alised care, with the key fo­cus to pro­vide a pri­vate home en­vi­ron­ment for each res­i­dent with full ac­cess to an ac­tive aged care life­style of their choice.

“Sea­sons Sin­na­mon Park has been de­signed to de­liver the se­cu­rity, dig­nity, re­spect and choice that our elders de­serve,” Mr Loudon says. “Each apart­ment is de­signed to ac­com­mo­date cou­ples who want to stay to­gether, with enough room for the grand­chil­dren or fam­ily to visit. Small pets are wel­come too.

“While the apart­ments have the look and feel of a lux­ury hol­i­day re­sort, they are equipped with state-of-the-art clin­i­cal mon­i­tor­ing and emer­gency re­sponse sys­tems. This al­lows res­i­dents to re­main in­de­pen­dent as their care needs change with­out the need to leave their own home.”

He said the new com­mu­nity would of­fer per­son­alised aged care ser­vices tai­lored to the care needs of its res­i­dents.

“Through our part­ner­ship with En­vigor Care Ser­vices we of­fer each res­i­dent a per­son­alised care plan, en­sur­ing all their clin­i­cal and per­sonal care needs are met from low to high care, right through to pal­lia­tive care.”

The new com­mu­nity is close to shop­ping, med­i­cal and trans­port ser­vices.

Fa­cil­i­ties in­clude land­scaped gar­dens, walk­ing tracks, a cin­ema, li­brary, beauty salon and cafe, along with planned life­style and so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties for res­i­dents.

Mr Loudon said the res­i­dents re­ceived three meals each day, which are freshly pre­pared and cooked on site and they had ac­cess to var­i­ous life­style events and ac­tiv­i­ties.

Sea­sons Aged Care’s $115 mil­lion devel­op­ment in Sin­na­mon Park puts res­i­dents’ in­de­pen­dence and choice first.
