Care and support made easy with St Vincent’s
14 March 2018
It's no secret the lives of today's Australian seniors are different to those of days gone by, thanks to longer life expectancies and an increase in overall quality of life. But the reality of a longer life does mean that many of us will need some sort of support or care as we age. While it can be a difficult conversation to have, discussing your options and planning ahead for future changes to your lifestyle will help make the transition easier when the time comes.
As one of Australia’s leading Catholic aged care and retirement living service providers, St Vincent’s Care Services offers a range of support and care options, tailored to each individual’s changing needs.
From providing assistance with domestic chores in the home, offering relaxed maintenance-free retirement communities, to delivering around-the-clock residential aged care, St Vincent’s Care Services prides itself on working to find the best solution for each resident and client, and can even assist families in navigating the sometimes complex world of aged care.
Many seniors who are in good health but are now ‘empty nesters’ may start to find the maintenance and upkeep of the family home becoming a challenge. Sometimes, just making adjustments to your lifestyle such as downsizing to a smaller home, and having someone else take care of maintenance can have a huge positive impact on your health and wellbeing. St Vincent’s Care Services Independent Living communities offer contemporary and private units with the convenience and comfort of a managed village lifestyle.
St Vincent’s Care Services Community Living is the perfect solution for seniors who are able to live in their own home or in an Independent Living community, but who would benefit from some assistance. Whether it’s help with the cleaning or weekly grocery shop, transport to and from appointments or social activities, or nursing care to help manage health conditions, your Community Living Co-ordinator will work with you to develop a plan to suit your needs and lifestyle.
When additional support is required, St Vincent’s Care Services Residential Living provides around-the-clock holistic care for a range of needs. Residents’ expert clinical care and comfortable welcoming accommodation is complemented by professional hotel services, extensive leisure and lifestyle activities and amenities, and compassionate pastoral care support. St Vincent’s Care Services staff focus on enhancing and celebrating each resident’s lifestyle and enriching their quality of life, and always ensuring residents feel welcome, valued and safe.
Additionally, as part of St Vincent’s Health Australia — the nation’s largest Catholic health and aged care provider — St Vincent’s Care Services offers its residents and clients access to a comprehensive, world-class health and hospital network.
