Giving you choice, now and in the future
We all like to pick and choose. It gives us the freedom to live our lives the way we want. That’s why we’re committed to giving our residents a wide range of products and services that contribute to their overall wellbeing. It’s all part of our Live Well Program, which focuses on encouraging our residents to live the way they choose. During their life with Aveo, our residents use their choices to make their life easier and more fulfilling. It comes down to individual circumstances.
Getting physical with wellbeing
Our Health and Wellness nurses collaborate with residents and allied health services to create an individualised Health and Wellness Plan. It might include physio, rehab exercise and podiatry from our partners at The Physio Co and Mobile Rehab. There might also be some regular group exercise classes and Tai chi in the mix. We’ve found this approach allows for more consistency of care and lets residents form trusting relationships with staff. This trust extends to the carers and registered nurses who go about their business caring for residents under the banner of our Aveo Care at Home service.
An environment that takes care of you
Our communities have spaces designed to enhance our residents’ lifestyle and encourage participation in a vibrant community. Throughout our communities you’ll find manicured gardens and walking tracks, communal BBQ areas and well vegetated outdoor spaces. Sometimes, just time alone with the trees can reinvigorate the spirit. Other times, a group activity will bring out the best in our residents. Either way, we believe in providing spaces to enrich our residents’ wellbeing. That’s why we have Community Centres that form a social hub where there’s everything from libraries to billiard rooms and bars that have happy hours.
Feed who you are
With the help of Nutrition Professionals Australia, we provide food menus with the nutritional requirements of over 65’s in mind. Whether it’s through our restaurants, dining rooms or home delivery service, we provide a wide range of nutritious and delicious meals, from classic favourites to tasty international dishes. Our Health and Wellness nurses can work with you to create a healthy meal plan that’s tailored to your needs and takes into account your lifestyle. And for those that enjoy cooking as a hobby or simply love creating dishes for themselves and their friends, we provide well stocked recipe libraries, cooking demos and we are also planning a cookbook for over 65’s.
We are all connected
Wanting to feel connected to a group, friends and family is only human. That’s why we look at our retirement villages as whole communities. They are places where our residents have every opportunity to socialise and feel part of something bigger. It’s why we make room for family and grandkids to visit and sit down together for a meal at our restaurants. It’s also why we create a safe, secure environment where our residents have the peace of mind of knowing that support and care will be there if needed.
The importance of stimulating the mind
Exercising the mind is just as important as exercising the body. It can help us feel sharp and alive and help us connect with others. There’s many things our residents do to stimulate their intellectual side. Some continue on with a lifelong hobby while others take up something new and learn new skills through classes. Many of our residents also enjoy our phone, internet and Foxtel service, Aveo Connect, to do everything from surfing the internet to watching documentaries, movies and sporting events.
