Gaynes Park Manor
Gaynes Park Manor
Created by Life Care, Gaynes Park Manor is what all residential aged care should be: a community where people can continue to live meaningful and engaged lives in an environment in which any of us would happily live.
On first impression, Gaynes Park Manor feels like a new boutique hotel. Designed by internationally renowned architects Marchese Partners, it has a sense of tranquility and warm welcome. Its rooms would look at home on any luxury hotel website. We’re very glad to say, though, that there's more to the story than what's on the surface.
Here, people live in small ‘communities’ of around eight people. Each community is centred around a dedicated communal kitchen, dining, lounge and activity area with each person’s room placed around this space. And it’s in this space where the dedicated support team work to make life as rich and meaningful as possible.
What you won't see at Gaynes Park Manor is ‘nurse call bells’ on the wall and fall mats on the floor. Instead, we have created “Call Assist”, the Southern Hemisphere’s first truly mobile call system. To make it feel more like a beautiful apartment and nothing like a hospital, Call Assist replaces call bells and mats with a simple wearable device a little like a Fitbit. With this, people can call for support and staff will know exactly where they are, anywhere within Gaynes Park Manor.
Our support teams are passionate about making life as rich and meaningful as possible for everyone and particularly for people living with dementia. So whether someone wants to read the paper, bake a cake, learn a new hobby, care for animals or just entertain family or friends, the team is there to help make it happen.
