Aged Care Homes for Relaxed Retirement Living

The aged care sector in Australia has undergone significant change throughout the past few decades and is set to experience steady growth over coming years as the nation’s large baby boomer population settles into retirement.

One of the most striking features of this maturation within the aged care industry can be found in the facilities themselves, with aged care facilities across the country transforming from functional yet beige dormitories for the elderly and disabled into the spacious, open-plan “lifestyle villages” of today, often ringed by landscaped gardens and complete with their own hair salons, piano rooms, spas, swimming pools and even in-house cinemas. As one of Australia’s premier aged care providers, Japara is proud of our 43 high quality facilities spread across the country which offer our residents the best quality of life available.

 

High quality aged care accommodation at 43 locations across Australia

From the hills surrounding Launceston Tasmania to the sunny plains of Gympie Queensland and everywhere in between, Japara are pleased to offer elderly Australians the highest quality aged care accommodation available today at our 43 independent facilities across the nation. The quality of life and lifestyle needs of our residents form the central focus of our group, meaning at every Japara address you will find spacious open-plan shared living spaces, generously-sized individual or shared private bedrooms and picturesque gardens where residents and their families can escape to nature and let their minds wander. Our facilities can be found in both busy metropolitan areas and quieter rural settings, giving those considering aged care living as an option for themselves or a loved one the flexibility to closely meet their unique lifestyle and family requirements. Many of our addresses have also undergone extensive renovations in recent years to bring them up to our discerning standards, including our Kelaston Nursing Home in Wendouree in Victoria and Trevu House in Gawler South Australia to name just a few. In total, as of April 2016 Aged Care Services Australia Group has 31 facilities in Victoria, 6 in South Australia, 3 in New South Wales, 2 in Queensland and 1 in Tasmania.

 

Local managers for local aged care with a smile

Whilst Japara owns a total of 43 facilities across the country, one of the biggest strengths of our group is the local management structure, whereby the day-to-day running of each address is overseen by a dedicated facility manager who comes from the local community and leads a team of qualified nurses and administration staff who also live in the local community. With many of our residents moving into the facility closest to their previous address and family members, this emphasis on local management provides a continuous link to the familiar surroundings of their local community which can make the transition into aged care living that much easier. It also gives our facility managers and staff the opportunity to get to know each resident and their families on a one-on-one basis, creating a pleasant, secure atmosphere ideal for relaxed retirement living.

 

Personalised lifestyle programs for active aged care

Finally, Japara understands that retirement needn’t mean the end of an active fulfilling life, with many Australians now living well into their 80’s and beyond thanks to rapid advances in healthcare technology and improvements to diet and nutrition. This is why we offer personalised lifestyle programs for all our residents, which include regular coach outings to locations of their choice, in-house activities in response to residents’ suggestions and other activities to entertain, inspire and keep minds and bodies healthy well into advanced age. These are just a few of the many ways we offer our residents a superior quality of retirement living to help them make the most of their golden years, supported off course by the hard work and dedication of our qualified nursing staff!
