Living Choice is delighted to announce that agreement has been reached with Arcare Aged Care to build, own and operate an Aged Care Residence on the South West corner of the Living Choice Glenhaven site, on the corner of Glenhaven Road and Holland Road.

An application will be lodged with the Hills Shire Council to sub-divide the relevant land, which measures 8,449m2.

Arcare is an Australian government endorsed aged care provider with over 40 years of experience in seniors’ living. Arcare’s aged care residences have been recognised as the gold standard in residential aged care since commencing operations in 1997.

Arcare has 2,111 beds across its 23 aged care residences in Victoria and Queensland and offers a mix of permanent care, respite care and dementia care. Arcare plans to operate 3,000+ beds by 2015 and the Glenhaven aged care residence will be its first community in NSW.

Living Choice director Graham Hobbs said the agreement was a significant milestone in the development of the village. “It will place Living Choice Glenhaven in the enviable position of being able to offer independent, resort-style living and a guaranteed place on the waiting list of our neighbouring 5-star aged care residence,” he said.

“We expect an increased demand for both new and resale homes as it has been proven that retirement villages which have co-located aged care facilities are in greater demand and this will further benefit residents. We are looking forward to joining hands with Arcare to provide access to all levels of care at Living Choice Glenhaven.”
