While retirement living is often confused with aged care, in reality, they are worlds apart. Wesley Mission Queensland’s new Rosemount Retirement Community is a great example of this, offering a modern, active lifestyle. Not only do residents live independently in quality, spacious apartments, but they also have access to great on-site services, and a warm community of like-minded people and support when they need it.

In the past, when Jack Wyllie’s daughter would go on a holiday, he would arrange to have friends check on him. “I’m pretty independent,” Jack says. “I just like having the security of someone to call on if I need help.” But in April of this year, Jack’s daughter and friends were all going to be away at the same time, and he needed to find a place where he could feel secure and cared for.

By sometime around 2040, Australia’s population aged over 65 years will account for 25% of the total population. At the same time, average life expectancy is increasing – from around 68 years old in the 1960s, to an expected 83 years old in the 2040s. So it stands to reason that the way we care of our ageing population will be growing, changing, and innovating, too.
400,000 Australians will be diagnosed with a form of dementia by 2020. What if one of them is someone you love? What if you could help them realise a life-long dream and tick something off their ‘bucket list’?
It’s a bright sunny day as the Wesley Mission Queensland community bus pulls up outside Cooper House aged care community, at Wheller Gardens in Chermside. A few residents who are enjoying the morning sun in the foyer watch the driver get out and open the back of the bus, before he hurries over to the front door where those who are most eager are already making their way out. “Hello Frank,” they say with a smile, and Frank returns the greeting as he begins to help everyone on board for the day’s bus outing.
On Tuesday, as they do every fortnight, the children from Little Marchants Child Care Centre skipped through the doors of the nearby Cooper House Aged Care Community, ready for a morning of play and laughter.
