Jodie’s parents Guy and Ginny were happily enjoying their retirement at The Landings when Guy had an unexpected heart attack. Ginny also began to experience ongoing health needs. While their commitment to each other is unwavering, Guy and Ginny realised their respective care needs had progressed beyond what they could comfortably provide on their own.
During this time, Jodie did what many loving children would do; she tried to find a long-term solution that would make them truly happy. That was until The Landings was taken over by LDK Seniors’ Living Villages. When they came to know LDK Seniors’ Living, they saw it offers the vibrant lifestyle of a retirement village and has 24/7 care on-hand if needed. Care is delivered in the comfort and privacy of resident’s own homes, enabling them to live independently and lead a full life. "Everything they could have wanted is there," says Jodie.
As well as the physical care options available, LDK also helps residents stay socially connected and active through their ‘Lifestyle for Life™’ philosophy. They offer over 30 clubs and activities to take part in, as well as a library facility, hair and beauty salon, and a village bus for regular outings. Residents can choose to cook for themselves at home, eat in the restaurant or have freshly cooked meals delivered to their door every day. "Everything they could have wanted is there," says Jodie.
Guy, Ginny and Jodie couldn’t be more delighted with LDK. “It’s lifted 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 here. This is how every senior Australian deserves to be treated.”
Adding to Jodie’s peace of mind, is the fact her parents will be able to stay together in their home, even when their care needs change. LDK’s One Move Promise® means couples are guaranteed a home together, cutting out the stress of having to move or spend time apart. “This is truly home for them,” says Jodie. “They’ll never have to move again.”
Not only has LDK has changed the quality of Guy and Ginny’s lives, it’s taken the worry out of Jodie’s life too. “It’s the best thing that ever happened to Mum and Dad,” she says.
Greenway Views is LDK’s first purpose-built Seniors’ Living Village in Canberra with Stage 1 opened in January. A dedicated on-site team is already in place to cater to all care requirements for residents ready to move in straight away. Premium properties that offer a range of living requirements and needs are available, including studio, one and two-bedroom apartments.
