The demographics of the area have changed in the 20 plus years we have been established, to the point where our position is highly desirable indeed and has now been extended by adjoining development wherein we have an attractive water frontage that affords beautiful views where our residents are able to enjoy tranquil scenery and surroundings along with a pleasant BBQ area that is enjoyed by all.
We are located within a five hundred metre radius from a new medical centre, a Retirement Village and a medium sized shopping centre. Lions Haven delivers a high standard of Low Care, Ageing in place, High Care and Respite, working closely with the above facilities to deliver the best possible care in the region.
Our residents come from an area beyond the immediate geographic boundaries, largely because of the inviting locality of the facility and the warmth and efficiency of our home. We have received interstate inquiries from people who are prepared to make alternative arrangements as a temporary measure until we are able to cater for their needs.
At Lions Haven we have a flexible staffing mix to enable the care needs of the current residents to be more than adequately met and we will continue to do this with our expanded service.
Over 50% of our residents have a diagnosis of Dementia or Alzheimer’s. Our philosophy is such that not all of these residents require housing in a secure unit. We house only 30 % of our residents with such a diagnosis in our Memory Support Units (which are secure) and the remainder we integrate into our general access accommodation.
Our prospective residents have commented on our newly refurbished facility which offers “exactly what they are looking for “ in that there is a spaciousness in our rooms and generous public areas. Lions Haven is centrally located in the heart of the Hope Island /Sanctuary Cove area, which is an attractive area to retire.
Our facility has been fully accredited since opening. We have built a name in the region as being very comfortable with high clinical standards and a well-run facility with ageing in place whilst adopting a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Lions Haven for the Aged has been recognised in the past with Excellence in Care Awards from Aged Care Queensland, including a NIMAC ‘Above and Beyond’ award for two of our leaders.
Management and staff are regular attendees at the Aged Care Standards and
Accreditation Agency Conference and other conferences. All staff are given
opportunities for professional development in line with the training analysis
developed during the appraisal process.
We also provide a room (free of charge) for relatives/representatives of
residents who are palliating so that they may stay close to their loved one
during this time of need.
