02 Mar The new Care Centre at The Somerset Lifestyle and Retirement Village
We are immensely proud of our beautiful new Care Center and are thrilled to show it off. What you see is the result of collaboration between CPOA & Westacre.
Great care has been made in the design of the Care Centre to be residential and not feel like a hospital or institution.
At the Somerset, our aim is to support our residents to live independently as possible and this is included in the design of the Care Centre.
Some design elements include wide corridors and handrails, beautiful but Hospital grade vinyl non-slip / non flooring non-glare, lovely seating with height and seat depth and armrest – which promotes independence, lovely bathrooms with turn wheelchair and assistive devices.
There are 17 Residential rooms and 2 sickbays.
The Care Centre is designed to accommodate residents with a variety of clinical care and offer
- convalescent care,
- frail care and
- palliative care.
We believe that care for the Elderly is so much more than providing a roof over their head and meeting basic needs and we aim to make a difference in people’s lives and make life meaningful.
