Care and security at Glenhaven
Residents at Living Choice Glenhaven value the sense of safety and security that comes from living in a retirement village with monitored entry and caring staff and neighbours who look out for you. The village is also located in a beautiful, safe area.
The village currently offers luxury Independent Living with staff on-site 5 days per week and 24-hour emergency response provided by Tunstall Healthcare. Living Choice Home Care is also available, offering a wide range of services, either through a Government subsidy or on a user-pays basis.
Living Choice also recognises that residents may need a higher level of care in the future and sold part of the retirement village site to Arcare Aged Care to build, own and operate an Aged Care Residence on the South West corner of the village site. The 5-star residence opened in September 2017 and several residents are now living at Arcare. Applicants are subject to the normal assessment criteria and availability varies.
Health and Home Care
As an Approved Provider, Living Choice Home Care offers residents a wide range of services, including cleaning, transport, shopping and personal care. There is also a visiting doctor who consults in the village’s medical room once a week. A podiatrist and hairdresser visit weekly and there is a monthly mobile dental clinic.
Living Choice Glenhaven’s much-loved manager Gail Eyres has been described by residents as “the rudder and sails” of the village. She has developed a ‘Buddy System’ to assist residents when she is off-site and also guides residents and their families regarding care services provided by outside providers.
Peace of mind is assured with the Tunstall Healthcare Personal Alarm System installed in all homes and common areas. A waterproof pendant is also supplied. At the touch of a button residents can press their pendant or Help button to be connected to an off-site Tunstall Nurse who will assess the emergency and summon an ambulance, if necessary. All village staff have First Aid training and will also respond to emergencies during office hours.
