"Not having to move house again is a wonderful feeling".

Scanning the pages of her newspaper, an advertisement for The Henley on Broadwater caught Heather’s eye.

The lifestyle resort had all she wanted: superb views of the ocean, fabulous apartments, access to shops and restaurants, and a friendly environment with outstanding amenities.

“It simply jumped out at me off the page,” says Heather, who after many fulfilling years helping her family look after grandchildren in Brisbane wanted some more time for herself and a beach lifestyle.

“It was perfect and just what I had been searching to be able to return to, having lived most of my life near the ocean.”

Now comfortably settled in her apartment, where she says the “views are simply stunning”, the retired nursing sister appreciates the peace of mind that The Henley’s care options bring, including access to on-site medical staff, wellness programs and a host of recreational facilities.

“Not having to move again is wonderful,” she says.

Heather also has nothing but praise for all the staff at The Henley, from senior management and staff through to the nursing team and maintenance personnel.

“They have shown kindness, consideration and care to all residents,” she says. “They are simply wonderful and I can’t say enough to thank them.”

Not only is Heather rapt at her new lifestyle, but her family draw comfort from knowing that their mother and grandmother is happily ensconced in a safe environment with caring and friendly owners and staff.

“My family are very happy and see the move as ‘living the dream’ for me.”
