When Jodie's parents moved in to an LDK Seniors’ Living Village, they found a home they love - and she found peace of mind.
When Guy and Ginni got married 55 years ago, they dreamed of a long, happy life together. “I couldn’t ask for a better partner than Ginni,” says Guy. “What’s the secret to a long, happy relationship? Patience and kindness.”
After working hard and raising their family, the couple were determined to enjoy every moment of their well-earned retirement. But when Guy had a heart attack, and Ginni began to have ongoing health needs, their eldest daughter Jodie started to worry about both their health and happiness.
When they came to know LDK Seniors’ Living and the difference it offered to other retirement living and aged care options, they were so relieved. A community offering the vibrant lifestyle of a retirement village, with 24/7 care on-hand if needed. "Everything they could have wanted is there," says Jodie. And so their journey with LDK began.
"It's a huge weight off my shoulders to see the beautiful relationships Mum has developed living at LDK, and to know that care is here 24/7,” says Jodie. “It feels so good to know that mum absolutely loves it.”
Jodie's peace of mind is guaranteed due to the One Move Promise®. This keeps couples together in their home, even when their care needs change, cutting out the stress and upheaval of having to move or spend time apart. “LDK provides us with 24/7 care in the privacy and convenience of our own home, so we won’t ever have to move,” says Guy. "Now that’s what I call peace of mind.” Jodie adds: “This is truly home for them.”
LDK also helps residents stay socially connected and active through their ‘Lifestyle For LifeTM‘ philosophy, offering over 30 clubs and activities to take part in. Residents can choose to cook for themselves at home in their own kitchens, eat in the restaurant or have freshly cooked meals delivered to their door every day.
For Guy and Ginni, knowing they are somewhere they can live comfortably, safely and together, is invaluable. “One thing remains the same; our love and support for each other. I think we found a place that understands that,” says Guy. Jodie couldn’t agree more: “It’s the best thing that ever happened to Mum and Dad.”
Greenway Views is LDK’s first purpose-built Seniors’ Living Village in Canberra with Stage 1 having opened in January. A dedicated on-site care team is already in place for residents ready to move in straight away. Premium properties that offer a range of lifestyle options as well as 24/7 care if needed, are available - including one and twobedroom apartments.
