- Resthaven Aberfoyle Park, 100 Hub Drive, Aberfoyle Park, SA, 5159, Australia
Resthaven Aberfoyle Park is a high quality, attractive, purpose-built aged care service, constructed to fit into the local neighbourhood and community.
Resthaven Aberfoyle Park is located in the main business precinct, with capacity to accommodate 100 people. While the whole site is a suitable environment for people with dementia and/or high level clinical care; smaller areas will be dedicated to specialised care for people with dementia and associated behaviours.
Two rooms are dedicated to residential respite, providing opportunity for carers of older people to have a break from their caring role.
In bringing services to Resthaven Aberfoyle Park, we will provide a model consistent with our purpose and values, responding to all older people and their carers, but with special attention to older vulnerable and financially/socially disadvantaged people.
Our anticipated workforce (approximately 100 staff) will include an experienced Manager of Residential Services, a Care Coordinator overseeing clinical care; registered and enrolled nurses, allied health professionals, chaplain, personal care workers, hospitality, maintenance, lifestyle and clerical support staff.
Residents and care staff will have access to registered nursing staff, 24 hours/day, 7 days a week, with high level support by qualified clinical team (continence nurse advisors, senior manager clinical services, clinical services coordinator, Nurse Practitioner Palliative Care).
All bedrooms will be single with ensuites (four rooms will be large enough to accommodate couples), have access to external views, with rooms clustered in housing units. Each housing unit will have smaller dining and lounge areas, providing opportunities for families to meet for quiet, private leisure time.
A community “hub” including larger communal meeting room/s, and Internet Café will be included in the design, promoting community participation. Protected, secure, safe and accessible landscaped areas will provide the ability to engage with gardening and sensory activities.
Resthaven Aberfoyle Park will support local older people to remain living in their community.
The site is adjacent to the Aberfoyle Village Shopping Centre, with a large range of food and retail outlets, schools, and leisure facilities. The site is conveniently located within easy reach of health services and medical centres. The main bus route travels along Hub Drive, with a bus stop immediately outside Resthaven Aberfoyle Park. The Onkaparinga Council provides community transport services with a connection to the public bus service at the Shopping Centre.
‘I would like to pass on to all the staff how grateful we are for their help, care and respect shown to mum, and us a family too.’
