    In the Serviced Apartments we have a dedicated Care team who are on site 24/7 for all apartment resident needs. We also have a Registered Nurse on call at all times if additional care is needed.

    For our village residents we have an emergency telephone system, which is monitored 24/7 by health professionals.


  • If I move in to the Village, can I then move in to the Apartments if I need a greater level of care down the road?

    Yes you can. Each resident meets with our team who can provide assistance in deciding which living arrangement is best for your personal circumstances.
