Entrusting the care of your loved one to someone else is not a decision to make lightly. Transitioning from their home to residential aged care can be an overwhelming experience for them, so it’s important to ensure you find a home where they feel comfortable.
Choosing a premium aged care home has many benefits for both you and your loved one. Ensuring high-quality care is essential for them and will give you the peace of mind they are receiving the best care possible.
At a premium aged care home residents will receive personalised care from highly-trained staff. With residents spending so much time with staff it’s essential they are compassionate, caring and can give them the care they deserve.
Quality care is about recognising a resident’s individual needs to support their living while encouraging them to be as independent as possible. Staff need to be respectful, compassionate and dedicated to doing everything possible to make residents feel at home.
Home is where the heart is, but it’s also where your loved one needs to feel the most comfortable.
Accommodation options differ from one residential aged care home to another and not all homes will provide the same standard of accommodation. Premium aged care homes should provide high-quality beautifully appointed rooms that exceed resident’s expectations.
Premium aged care homes will offer a variety of accommodation options, from rooms for couples to deluxe suites for those residents who desire more luxury.
With premium aged care residents can expect high-quality medical care. This includes 24/7 nursing care from registered nurses and a quality medical team.
A premium aged care home places strong importance on helping residents stay as independent as possible. They provide an environment where residents can connect to keep their minds active.
A range of activities and events organised by diversional therapists to entertain and engage residents is one of the main benefits of choosing a premium aged care home. Residents can attend in-house activities as well as events held out in the community.
A hallmark of a premium aged care home is the quality of meals. To help your loved one feel at home it’s important to have delicious healthy meals. Some premium aged care homes offer dietician approved menus, ensuring the meals meet all dietary requirements of residents.
Many premium aged care homes offer additional services to help residents feel at home and make it easier to receive services without leaving the premises. Some aged care homes offer access to on-site hairdressers, beauty therapists, physiotherapists and more.
