In an era when many Australians want to remain living in their home as they age, a Gold Coast lifestyle resort is positioned as a game-changer.
The Henley on Broadwater has already won acclaim for offering retirees a haven in a world-class site. All apartments have ocean views and private balconies, they are located on the doorstep of restaurants, parklands, Australia Fair Shopping Centre, transport, hospitals and medical facilities, and residents have access to recreational facilities such as barbecue terraces, a community lounge and bar, a pool and gymnasium and a sky-deck garden and bowling green. Residents lead a socially engaged and active life made easy by The Henley’s location adjacent to 3km of Broadwater Parklands and the Southport Aquatic centre
What truly makes The Henley unique is Henley Home Services, offering home-care-style support that gives residents the assistance they need now, with the flexibility to add services as their needs evolve. You no longer have to be in a care environment to receive all levels of care. Options include personal care such as help with showering, dressing and grooming; domestic services, including household chores and cleaning; meal preparation that ensures nutritious home-made food; and other miscellaneous tasks such as shopping or looking after pets. Nurses are at the resort every day of the week to provide you with all levels of nursing care such as wound dressing, medication management and health assessments. They also act as a ‘care concierge’ coordinating allied health professionals, liaising with other practitioners and sourcing government funding.
Managing Director Patrick Smith says “The Henley is leading the trend towards multi-storey retirement living whereby residents enjoy apartments with a luxury hotel feel – and the privacy, security and superb views that go with it – along with on-site wellbeing support and ageing-in-place care services. Life at The Henley is about doing what is important to you with Henley support to maintain your independence.
Mr Smith believes Henley Homecare Services will set the standard for other retirement-living facilities.
“Our model offers all the benefits of home care, but with the added advantage of having services available on-site and around the clock,” he says. “The beauty of such an ageing-in-place model is that our service delivery can be adjusted to meet the changing needs of residents, resulting in the real prospect that they may never have to move home again.”
The services are underpinned by three guiding principles: individuality (providing tailored support), independence (helping residents live the best possible life) and flexibility (designing services to suit people’s varying schedules).
Mr Smith says in the event of residents becoming ill, having falls, needing wound care or experiencing other health concerns, they can quickly get on-site nursing care – making the recovery process much smoother and in many cases eliminating the need to go off-site to medical centres or hospitals. Having friendly, familiar staff who can help out adds to the appeal for residents.
“It’s like having home care on your doorstep,” Mr Smith says.
Significantly, residents of The Henley can access all on-site support services while still being eligible for supported government funding.
