At The Verge, independence and freedom are always priorities, even during the times when you or your partner may require assistance. Needing care shouldn’t mean sacrificing who you are or the things that bring quality to your life. Care services are designed to provide you with the flexibility to continue living life your way.
Care on your terms
A like-minded community
Our safe and supportive community is a place to feel right at home – both now and in the years ahead. Should you ever face health issues, rest easy knowing you can access care and support from home care services and a RetireAustralia nurse.. This makes life a little easier and gives you peace of mind that, should your needs change, you can continue to stay safely in your own home for longer.
Home carecan help with household chores, meal preparation, showering, dressing, wound management, and medication support, to name a few. Our nurse is also available to provide care assessments and advice and support as you navigate life’s changes. Care is tailored to your individual needs and is funded privately or through access to an approved government Home Care Package (HCP).*
*Subject to funding conditions
As we get older, having the right level of support is key to maintaining independence and quality of life. At The Verge you can maintain a self-sufficient, independent lifestyle with more time for the things you enjoy. Apartments have been expertly designed with ageing-well in mind.
Low maintenance, wide walkways, lots of storage, natural light, accessible fixtures, deep showers and reinforced bathroom walls to retrofit railings are all seamlessly built in without ever disturbing the aesthetic or sacrificing the comforts of home.
Our dedicated team take care of gardening and maintenance, so you won’t have to – instead, you can continue enjoying time with friends, family, and all the opportunities village life brings.
