Pets, cinemas, beauty salon among aged care features
Pets, space for the visiting grandchildren to stay, a cinema, beauty salon and in-house medical staff are all part of a $115 million Brisbane seniors project transforming aged care.
Providing independence and choice for aged care residents is the mantra for Seasons Aged Care’s latest development in Sinnamon Park.
Chief executive officer Nick Loudon says they have a “truly unique” approach to lifestyle and care at their new community.

The development opened last month, and Loudon says it promises to take the Brisbane-based company’s aged care and community living to the next level.
“We’re not about just selling bricks and mortar here,” Loudon says.
“While the community building itself is impressive, the real difference is our ageing in place approach that puts resident independence and choice first.
“We offer a homelike environment where our residents can live exactly how they like and keep doing the things they love, just as they always have, it’s their own home.
“When life starts to get harder, we offer personalised support from low to high care, including dementia and palliative care, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
He says the community brings together lifestyle benefits of retirement living with high-quality personalised care, with the key focus to provide a private home environment for each resident with full access to an active aged care lifestyle of their choice.
“Seasons Sinnamon Park has been designed to deliver the security, dignity, respect and choice that our elders deserve,” Loudon says.
“Each apartment is designed to accommodate couples who want to stay together, with enough room for the grandchildren or family to visit. Small pets are welcome too.
“While the apartments have the look and feel of a luxury holiday resort, they are equipped with state-of-the-art clinical monitoring and emergency response systems.
“This allows residents to remain independent as their care needs change without the need to leave their own home.”
He says the new community will offer personalised aged care services tailored to the care needs of its residents.
Loudon says the residents receive three meals each day, which are freshly prepared and cooked on site and they have access to various lifestyle events and activities.
