TriCare unveils the future of residential aged care today with the opening of its state-of-the-art extension to Cypress Gardens Aged Care Residence at Clear Island Waters.

We will be using the innovation and design at TriCare Cypress Gardens as a benchmark to ensure all residents within our TriCare community have the quality of life they expect and deserve,” said Mr Aitchison.

TriCare Cypress Gardens offers residents a choice of accommodation to suit all financial circumstances, including deluxe, private accommodation in the new extension, or private and companion rooms within the established community.

Complete with a cafe, hair salon, luxurious social interaction zones and fresh nutritious meals prepared daily by the on-site chef, the new extension provides a very modern take on the future of aged care living.

There has been significant refurbishment of existing residence including conversion of shared rooms to private rooms with private ensuite and companion rooms with shared ensuite. Current activities rooms and dining rooms upgraded and enlarged with fresh new décor.

“We want our residents to enjoy everything that Cypress Gardens has on offer, from the restaurant quality meals created by our on-site chef, to the stylish 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 Cypress Gardens Retirement Community is ideally located on the same site providing easier transition between the two should the need arise.
