TriCare sets standard for aged care on Brisbane’s north side

TriCare sets a new standard for aged care living on Brisbane’s north side with the opening of its state-of-the-art wing to Stafford Lakes Aged Care Residence at Chermside West last week.

Following a $22 million investment, the purpose built 73-bed extension leads the way in changing aged care perceptions for the future, with a focus on high quality care and the latest in clinical technology.

TriCare Aged Care Manager, Daniel Aitchison says the new extension raises the bar in aged care living on all levels.

“With care at the core of everything we do at TriCare, this investment means residents can age in place, receiving the quality of life they expect and deserve.

Our Stafford Lakes Aged Care Residence has always experienced strong occupancy, with an ongoing demand for availability. With the addition of 73 new beds, we are making a positive step towards addressing the aged care needs of the Chermside community and surrounding areas,” said Mr Aitchison.

The new wing offers residents spacious luxury accommodation with European style ensuites, individual climate controlled air conditioning, German designed and built automated bed recliner, large wall mounted flat screen TV with Foxtel and wifi.

“Moving forward TriCare has committed $100 million to new developments in the aged care market in Queensland and Victoria.”

“We believe this investment is a step towards addressing the needs of our aging population and meeting the demands for a higher standard of care from consumers and their families,” said Mr Aitchison.

With the latest in premium aged care accommodation and five star hospitality the new extension provides a very modern take on the future of aged care living.

“We want our residents to enjoy everything that Stafford Lakes has on offer, from the restaurant quality meals to the stylish light filled communal lounge areas throughout the building. It’s important to us that our residents feel relaxed and at home here,” said Mr Aitchison.

Furthering TriCare’s commitment to keeping residents in their homes and communities longer, TriCare Stafford Lakes Retirement Community is ideally located close by making easier transition between the two should the need arise.

The first residents move in from Monday February 12, 2018.
