Aged care provider expects more long-term residents

A local aged care provider is expecting the numbers of long-term residents to increase

"We have noticed an emerging trend where people are moving into our independent living units in their early retirement," said Peninsula Villages chief executive Mr Colin Osborne.

"This allows them to enjoy their retirement within our secure premises, be a part of the Peninsula Villages community, and then, if required, make an easy move into one of our higher-care residences within the same, familiar community down the track."

He anticipated that this would be more commonplace as older-aged locals were moving into independent living units for their retirement.

The provider currently has two residents who have lived there more than 27 years.

Ms Lucy Roy moved into her independent living unit 33 years ago, in 1989, and is still there today.

Mr Norm Pringle moved into an independent living unit in Peninsula Villages' Cooinda Village 27 years ago, in 1995

Mr Pringle said he and his wife Pat moved from East Hills in Sydney's south west.

"Pat and I fell in love with the region and its lifestyle," he said.

"When my health began to affect me, we started researching local retirement and aged care providers and Peninsula Villages ticked all our boxes in terms of their focus on community as well as facilities, ageing-in-place care model and social aspects on offer."

Mr Pringle said he was grateful for the compassion and support shown by staff and the friendships he has forged with fellow residents at the Village when Pat died in 2019.

"It's nice to know that I'm not alone and am surrounded by my Peninsula Villages family."

Norm moved from Cooinda Village to an independent living unit in Peninsula Village in 2017.
