The Sanctuary Assisted Living

  • Set in tranquil, landscaped gardens, The Sanctuary provides a boutique living environment where residents are free to maintain their active, independent lifestyle while enjoying the advantages of companionship and living support as needed.

    Accommodation

    Located in the leafy suburb of Tingira Heights, The Sanctuary offers luxury accommodation in a family friendly environment. All of our residents enjoy the comfort of a spacious, private suite in one of six, modern houses. Each house has a well-appointed kitchen along with airy living and dining areas, so residents can relax and entertain in relative privacy.

    Meals

    At The Sanctuary we ease the burden of cooking and cleaning-up by providing healthy and delicious meals and beverages. All meals are freshly prepared on site by The Sanctuary staff who take special care to satisfy the particular tastes of our residents. Residents also have the option to prepare meals in their own home whenever they wish.

    Community Facilities

    We encourage residents to socialise in the spacious lounge and dining areas of our community centre, take in a movie in the private theatre, and utilise the beautiful outdoor sitting and BBQ areas overlooking the manicured gardens. There is plenty of room for the grandchildren to run and play, and everyone is encouraged to make use of our private, heated pool.

    Care and Support

    The Sanctuary is an accredited Approved Provider, and our professional care staff can help arrange government-funded Community Packaged Care for residents to assist with the cost of health and personal needs. Alternatively, we can accommodate any existing government funded Care packages for you with no fuss. Nursing staff are on site throughout the day, seven days a week to assist with the administration of medications, arrange health care appointments. They can also provide transportation to appointments if required. Our 24 hour personal response service will alert an on-call carer in the case of an emergency. With a maximum of twenty-nine residents, we provide living support tailored to the individual, giving our residents choices that empower them to manage their daily lives as they please. We look forward to meeting with you to discuss how we can best accommodate and support you or your loved one at The Sanctuary.
