A new exciting concept in Seniors Living is coming to Newcastle – Cameron Glen.
What is different about Cameron Glen village?
The fundamental difference that sets Cameron Glen apart from other retirement villages is that it offers “supported living” – the best of retirement living, combined with the best of traditional aged care.
Unlike other retirement villages, residents have access to various levels of personal care and nursing care, with the distinct difference that that this care and support is provided in the privacy and luxury of their own home 24 hours a day/7 days a week. It’s a choice not available in an aged care facility.
This care is provided by our Cameron Glen’s own on-site dedicated nursing staff.
Couples can stay together, even when one partner requires a different level of care.
In many villages, when one partner is assessed as needing care, the couple is separated and one spouse is moved away to receive specialised care, which is traumatic for all concerned.
Ensuring residents remain together guarantees less anguish to both residents, as well as their loving families.
What attracts people to the “supported living” concept?
It’s all about the freedom of choices and the fact that residents retain their personal dignity.
People decide the level of service they require and the type of service they want to use.
Their choices range from domestic assistance, to comprehensive palliative care, or possibly a few minutes of nursing, to 24-hour round-the-clock care.
Cameron Glen also provides meals, lunch and dinner seven days a week, prepared in their stylish kitchen from local produce.
The majority of residents avail themselves of lunch, the main meal of the day, which is a very reasonably priced two-course meal.
Also available are, domestic services and maintenance staff.
Medical practitioners, podiatrists, hairdressers etc also visit the village to attend to the needs of our residents.
