It’s important to maintain an active and independent lifestyle, regardless of your age. At Milkwood Lifestyle Village, you can enjoy an active lifestyle and simultaneously have the security and peace of mind of proper care and support services. Our retirement village is developed not only to provide residents with a convenient place to live, but also 24-hour frail care, support in emergencies, security and healthy interaction with other retirees. In contrast with the majority of retirement villages, the Frail Care will be in phase 1 and the Service Centre in phase 2. This provides buyers with the peace of mind that all facilities will be readily available from the day they occupy their units. The service and frail care centres offer the following facilities to improve the quality of life of our residents:
For simplex units, residents are welcome to bring along their small dogs, however, acquiring new ones after moving into the village will require the approval of the body corporate.

This service can be delivered to residents in the privacy of their own home. This may typically include those individuals who need assistance for a short period of time, specifically recovering after a major illness or hospitalisation. It may also include residents who become dependent and need some level of nursing and assistance on a more permanent basis. Home-based care includes personal care, bathing, dressing and feeding. Care packages can normally range between 1–24 hours of care per day. Charges for this service can be discussed with the Frail Care Operator at the village as care packages are priced individually and based on a nursing assessment conducted at the village.
Each unit receives a panic button which will allow residents to call for assistance in case of an emergency, 24 hours a day. Frail care staff will respond, monitor and stabilise the resident. After assessment, the resident will either be referred to a medical practitioner or an ambulance will be arranged.
Residents who are unable to take care of themselves and require full nursing care and support can be admitted to the Frail Care Centre. This is a 24-hour service and residents can either be admitted on a permanent or temporary basis. All Frail Care rooms are tastefully decorated and furnished to create a homely ambience. Staff in the Frail Care Centre consist of a combination of senior sisters, staff nurses, nursing auxiliaries and caregivers who are fully-trained to fulfil the professional frail care nursing requirements.
Ongoing or periodic procedures involving injections, suture removals, wound and catheter care
Residents who require frail care can contact the Frail Care Operator who will do the necessary assessments. The frail care service is for the residents’ own account and includes a 24-hour nursing care, refreshments, housekeeping and laundry service for the duration of their stay.
