Colin Jackson is our very first Stockland resident to take advantage of a new option and utilise his home care package to help pay his monthly Serviced Apartment cost.

Colin, who loves photography, movies, and reading recently transferred from Queens Lake Village to a Serviced Apartment at Parklands Village at Port Macquarie on the mid north coast of NSW.

Through our new Stockland Benefits+ Home Care partnership and existing Stockland services, Colin is able to use his myagedcare Home Care Package to help pay for the Stockland services he receives such as the apartment cleaning, laundry, bed making and daily meal preparation.

This brand new option has made a dramatic impact on Colin’s life to assist him maintain his independence while also reducing the cost that Colin pays each month from his own pocket by almost half.

The services provided in a Stockland Serviced Apartment are all services which are eligible to be funded from home care via an approved Home Care Provider. Stockland has partnered with our Benefits + Approved Home Care Providers to enable this funding to be accessed by our residents living in our Serviced Apartments.

Using the funding in this way spreads and reduces my ongoing monthly costs which is great and has made living in a Serviced Apartment so much more affordable - Colin Jackson

Colin said “using the funding in this way spreads and reduces my ongoing monthly costs which is great and has made living in a Serviced Apartment so much more affordable”

Colin, a former Accountant said the catalyst for him making the move into a Serviced Apartment was “The low cost of buying in, the timing for completion of the transfer (once approved to transfer you don’t have to wait for resale of your villa) and weighing up the cost against what I get in return made good sense”.

Colin recommends this option to “anyone who would benefit from nutritious fresh home cooked daily meals and said this is one of the best features since moving into a Serviced Apartment”. Daily living becomes much easier when a helping hand is never far away.

Stockland Serviced Apartments provide a safe, secure and connected community environment where in addition to the fresh cooked daily meals, cleaning, bed making and heavy laundry services are also taken care of and you enjoy the all the extra benefits of being located at the heart of the village community centre.

A no obligation, two week Free Trial Stay* in a Stockland Serviced Apartment of your choice is available for those interested in trying this option. The trial stay includes all of daily and weekly services.
