Moving into a retirement village doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on your independence. Stockland provides the option of living in a serviced apartment, where you can enjoy all the benefits of living independently in a retirement community and still have help close at hand if you need it.

What do we take care of?

In addition to having delicious daily meals prepared and cooked for you, your house will also be cleaned regularly. The friendly staff can take care of the heavier chores such as washing towels and bed linen. With these tiresome household tasks taken care of, you can sit back, relax and spend time with other residents.

What are the serviced apartments like?

With a modern, comfortable layout they range from studio to one and two bedroom units and feature a living room, user-friendly bathroom and kitchenette. They are located close to the heart of our retirement villages, offering easy access to great retirement activities as well as friendly staff and neighbours.

Can I use my government funded Home Care Package to help fund the services in the Serviced Apartments?

Yes, you can use your myagedcare.gov.au Home Care Package to help pay for eligible Serviced Apartment services through our approved provider partners to assist you to remain living independently in a Stockland Serviced Apartment. If you don’t have a Home Care package, we can connect you with our Home Care Partners who can assist you with the myagedcare navigation process to see if you are eligible to access funding. Our residents living in independent living units or Serviced Apartments are always free to choose their preferred care provider, however through Benefits+ partnerships; we hope to provide you with accessible options for high quality service and good value.

What happens in an emergency?

Because you are part of the retirement community you have access to assistance 24 hours a day. You have the peace of mind that if you find you need urgent help, you can access our emergency call system at the press of a button.

Here’s what Lorna has to say about her serviced apartment:

“I wanted to go to a nursing home but my daughter thought I was way too young for that; she also didn’t want me to lose my independence. She recommended these serviced apartments where I would still have my own place and could drive to the shops, but where I would also have some assistance with my meals, cleaning and getting around. The apartment I am in now is the first apartment I looked at. As soon as we walked in I said, ‘I feel good here.’” Lorna Pyne, Salford Waters Retirement Estate
