Arcare Templestowe features:
With large private suites, a boutique café, hairdressing salon, movie theatre and intimate dining and lounge rooms, Arcare Templestowe breaks the conventional aged care approach and reimagines spaces for later in life as premium, connected, inspiring and aspirational. VIA Architects and the Arcare design team have taken a fresh approach to the way residents will experience, interact and inhabit the space. High-quality materials, light-filled spaces, and a strong connection to the environment raise the bar on lifestyle and remove the stigma typically associated with aged care facilities.
A high-end aesthetic has been achieved with careful attention to spatial layout, furniture, fittings and fixtures. We aimed to create an aspirational space that reconceptualises this next stage in life as a place to carry on hobbies and relationships. Friends and family are equally welcome to enjoy the space with residents.
The bright entrance hall draws in views of the beautiful landscaping outside. The open plan layout creates a sense of freedom and independence for residents, and yet excellent visual connectivity supports staff to see and care for them. The facility is an attractive workplace for high-calibre healthcare professionals.
With a planning permit in place, and limits on height and footprint, there were significant constraints in achieving the programming aspirations of the client. The design has successfully navigated the balance of operational considerations and residents’ aspirations.
At a micro level, the design creates a sense of connected community for residents and their families, and encourages interaction with nature for mental stimulation and wellbeing. On a macro scale, this design is a precedent that contributes to the wider conversation about ageing in place and with dignity in Australia and serves as a precedent for others designing for this sector.
The Arcare Templestowe aged care communities provide opportunities for everyone to get involved. Whether it be small social gathering in the café, group excursions on the residence bus, guest speakers, hobby groups or just the day-to-day conversations with familiar team members, each day offers a range of options to choose from.
These regular interactions and social opportunities are sensitively designed to enable clients to form meaningful friendships with each other, team members and volunteers.
Relationship First Approach to celebrating and supporting old age is not only unique to Arcare, it’s also considered by aged care experts globally to be at the forefront of elder-care.
One of the most important ways of supporting the development of these relationships is the internationally recognised Dedicated Assignment, which Arcare won a 2015 Better Practice Award from the Australian Aged Quality Agency.
Arcare’s Dedicated Assignment involves all team members committing to work regular shifts with exactly the same small group of clients every time they come to work.
Arcare has twenty two aged care residences throughout Metropolitan Melbourne and Greater Geelong. They also operate a home care division, which provides transport, domestic, social and disability support services, as well as home care packages.
