A Few Reasons to Consider Supported Living.

Before Supported Living, Australians had the option of retirement villages or nursing homes.

For healthy lifestyles, retirement villages offered a great community, but as we age our requirements change, especially with care and support.

The traditional nursing home system has small rooms and a care model designed around patients and hospitals – something that we associate with previous generations.

But now a new alternative is available – Supported Living, which combines the best of both previous options. The independence and lifestyle of a retirement village, backed by the care and support of a nursing home. In fact, the cornerstone of Supported Living is independence, with a focus on as much freedom as possible. Our homes are self contained, so you can have exactly the same freedoms as you had in your own home your whole life. Cook for yourself, do your own laundry, have guests and families come over, and even stay over.

But underneath it all is a flexible system of user-pays care and support, that changes with you.

What does that mean?

It means that you only pay for what you use, as opposed to other aged care systems that set a care level and price, whether you need it or not. When your care needs go up or down, so does your care and support. 24 hours a day. 7 days a week.

Glenvale Villas has a lifestyle that works in tune with seniors living longer and wanting more out of life.

Make it your home.

It’s your home so decorate it the way you want. Even if you like flying ducks.
