A helping hand when you need it

Tuesday, 22 May 2018

We’ll connect you with local health and wellness services, so you have easy access to all the care and support you need.

Access to reliable health and wellness services is essential at any stage of life. We’re here to help connect you with the best health and wellness providers that can help you live your best life.

Helping you find local health services and care providers 

When you need medical or health services, finding good people can take a lot of valuable time. That’s why most retirement villages keep a list of local care providers to help you access the health and wellness services you need.

Doing the research for you saves you time and helps with peace of mind. 

We can also connect you with other local services such as: 

  • domestic help 
  • respite care 
  • help with shopping 
  • social support 
  • meal preparation 
  • nursing 
  • allied health services 
  • assistance aids 
  • equipment. 

In many locations, visiting practitioners like physiotherapists or podiatrists make it easy to stay in the village and save yourself a trip into town. This means you can go straight from your health appointment to your next social engagement in the village. 

Emergency call systems 

Many of our villages have set up world-class, in-home emergency call systems for their residences. The emergency call system instantly connects you to skilled operators who will talk you through your problem or take action to send emergency assistance. 

Depending on your village, there might be a cost to establish and run your emergency call system or it might be included in your monthly service fee. If you want to know if your village has this facility, speak with your friendly village manager. 

Costs aside, there is great comfort in knowing you always have someone to call if you need immediate help. Emergency call systems also give your family the peace of mind of knowing you’re safe and looked after if something goes wrong. 

We’re here when you need us 

Most of our villages are set among thriving local communities, so you get the benefit of quality local care services coupled with the convenience of transport and shops nearby. 

This means you can venture out to see your preferred care providers or stay in and go with the village's suggestions. The choice is entirely yours. And having choice is what it's all about.
