The $18 million, purpose built 73-bed extension aims to lead the way in changing aged care perceptions for the future, with a focus on high quality care and the latest clinical technology.
All suites in the new wing are furnished with German designed and built automated beds and a fully automated recliner, individual climate controlled air conditioning and louvered windows that allow fresh air to circulate.
In addition, the new extension comes complete with a café, hair salon, social interaction zones and meals prepared daily by the onsite chef, providing what TriCare Aged Care Manager Daniel Aitchison says is a very modern take on the future of aged care living.
“TriCare Cypress Gardens is at the forefront of clinical technology and, with 24 hour residential, respite and palliative care, we are well placed to provide older Australians with the highest quality aged care accommodation available on the Gold Coast,” he says.
“We will be using the innovation and design at Cypress Gardens as a benchmark to ensure all residents within our TriCare community have the quality of life they expect and deserve.”
Mr Aitchison says the care home offers residents a choice of accommodation to suit all financial circumstances including deluxe, private accommodation in the new extension, private and companion rooms within the established community.
“We want our residents to enjoy everything that Cypress Gardens has on offer; from the restaurant quality meals created by our on site chef, to the stylish communal lounge areas throughout the building,” he says.
“It’s important to us that our residents feel relaxed and at home here.”
