Known as Glenara Lakes Apartments, this Residential Aged Care Facility is located in a rural setting on the outskirts of Launceston and is set in picturesque grounds.
In keeping with our philosophy of ‘ageing in place’, Glenara Lakes offers a variety of accommodation options allowing residents to remain on-site with their changing health needs.
In addition to 88 spacious rooms with en-suite and a 16 bed secure dementia unit, we offer respite rooms for use by the community as short-term care or as a prelude to permanent.
In recognising there are times when families wish to remain close to a loved one, a family room is available for overnight stays. This room was furnished by the wonderful volunteer auxiliary.
A wonderful partnership between the Glenara Lakes Retirement Villa and Apartment residents fosters a real community feel. Volunteers from the Village help to provide services, including staffing the café, a popular amenity providing a social outlet for residents, visitors and staff.
An extensive programme of activities ensures that interests of residents are maintained and new interests formed. Activities include BBQs, bus outings, sing-alongs, visiting entertainers and participation in an intergenerational program with a local high school.
A range of allied health services are provided including podiatry, physiotherapy and speech therapy. A music therapist is also contracted to deliver service for residents. Enjoying the luxury of the hairdressing salon is as simple as making an appointment. Parking for visitors is easy and unlimited visiting hours ensure that friends and relatives relate easily with the family ethos of Glenara Lakes.
