Maples Retirement Village has operated for over 35 years as an aged care facility, and during this time has expanded from providing residential care to include modern serviced unit accommodation for semi-independent living.
A Living Environment to be enjoyed
Residents enjoy a wonderful living environment with a choice of four lounges, two dining rooms and three courtyards. All communal areas are close to rooms with easy access to gardens and connecting pathways. Because of our relatively small size, residents can easily mix with others and not feel overwhelmed or lonely. Everyone is on a first name basis, so if you are looking for a warm, friendly living environment with all the comforts of home, Maples could be just what you’re looking for.
As an Arvida village, we take care to listen and help residents to continue to enjoy the things they love to do. We also offer a one-on-one personal coaching programme that actively empowers residents to take charge of their own health and wellbeing.
Village Life at Maples
The benefit of having a qualified diversional therapist supported by an assistant allows residents to take advantage of our extensive monthly entertainment and activity program. There is something for everyone to either participate in or observe, from van outings to daily exercise, singing to listening to entertainers, craft work to housie, newspaper reading to drawingthe options are many and varied.
Maples provides modern retirement living in serviced units for people wanting a semi-independent life style as well as full rest home care and short term care (respite care).
