Melbourne's first high-rise aged care home is now open
Aug 27, 2018
After 3 years of planning and construction, TLC Aged Care’s latest development is now open. Located in the heart of Fitzroy North, Clifton Views is Melbourne’s first high-rise residential aged care home. This iconic home is the first of its kind, offering sophisticated accommodation options, an on-site medical centre, and sweeping views of the Melbourne skyline. Clifton Views is also located within a short distance of public transport, the Eastern Freeway, major hospitals, parks and the Melbourne CBD.
The design and decor of Clifton Views reflects its inner-city location and the vibrant local community. This home is specifically designed to promote a sense of style, sophistication and urban living. Natural light floods into the living areas from the floor to ceiling windows, allowing residents living with limited mobility the opportunity to enjoy the magnificent views from the internal spaces.
Each of the nine accommodation levels at Clifton Views are independent with their own lounge and dining areas. With a limited number of rooms and dedicated staff on each level, Clifton Views provides its residents with the privacy and personalised care they deserve.
The rooms at Clifton Views feature large windows that fill the space with warm natural light. The height adjustable king-single beds are the centerpiece of the rooms. Opposite the beds are built-in wardrobes and desks with wall-mounted televisions, perfect for watching the latest programs from the free in-room Foxtel service. Each room also has an adjoining ensuite, equipped with the latest features to ensure accessibility. For extra peace of mind, incorporated into the floor of each room is a sensory system that alerts staff as soon as a resident requires assistance.
The range of facilities available throughout the home makes Clifton Views a unique place to live. The ground floor café is the perfect setting for residents to enjoy a complimentary coffee with their guests. They can also entertain family and friends in the luxury surrounding of one of the private dining rooms. The team in the hair and beauty salon are available to make sure the residents are always looking their best and our state-of-the-art gym is a great place for residents to work on their strength and mobility. The general practitioners and allied healthcare professionals at the on-site medical centre are also available to care for the residents of Clifton Views and the wider community.
“Clifton Views sets a new residential aged care standard in Melbourne. This home is unique, as it is the first to offer high-rise city aged care to people who want to remain living in their inner-city community. TLC tends to be more forward thinking and innovative than others in the aged care industry. We’re certainly thinking ahead, expectations will change dramatically in the next 10 years as the baby boomer generation enters into our care, so we need to be ready now” says TLC Aged Care’s chief executive officer, Lou Pascuzzi.
