Re­tire­ment provider Aveo Group has un­veiled two new build­ings at its Aveo Spring­field re­tire­ment com­mu­nity in­clud­ing a state-of-theart well­ness cen­tre.

Aveo CEO Ge­off Grady said the in­tro­duc­tion of a health and well­ness cen­tre aligned with the group’s na­tional strat­egy to pro­vide res­i­dents with a com­mu­nity for life that met their care needs as they aged and facilitated the tran­si­tion into higher care lev­els within the com­mu­nity they love.

Mr Grady said the new ameni­ties would be the heart of the com­mu­nity al­low­ing se­niors to fur­ther enjoy the life­style af­forded to them in the Greater Spring­field re­gion.

“The new fa­cil­i­ties pro­vide a mod­ern and state-of-the-art lo­ca­tion for the ar­ray of weekly ac­tiv­i­ties hap­pen­ing at Aveo Spring­field in­clud­ing an arts and crafts group, a knit­ting group, ex­cur­sions and the very pop­u­lar happy hour,” he said.

“A key com­po­nent to liv­ing a vi­tal and healthy life­style as we age is so­cial­i­sa­tion and we have cre­ated av­enues at Aveo Spring­field that al­low our res­i­dents to re­main con­nected with their neigh­bours and the com­mu­nity.’’

Brian and Daphne Grant have lived at Aveo Spring­field for the past year af­ter down­siz­ing from a prop­erty in the area and said they were ex­cited to use the new well­ness cen­tre.

“We are re­ally pleased with the new ameni­ties on of­fer that have just opened at this com­mu­nity,” Mrs Grant said.

“Par­tic­u­larly we are look­ing for­ward to us­ing the swim­ming pool. Brian likes to use the gym and there are other ac­tiv­i­ties like tai chi.

The new stage in­cludes a range of one, two and three bed­room in­de­pen­dent liv­ing and as­sisted liv­ing apart­ments.
