Expatriate retirees approaching the ‘assisted living’ or ‘nursing’ stage in Malaysia are invariably hit by the reality that there are no options for quality retirement services like those available in Australia and the UK. Fortunately, there is now a ‘retirement resort’ that not only provides professional care services but also aims to deliver a lifestyle retirement experience.
NEED FOR ASSISTED LIVING AND NURSING
Locally there are no professional assisted living and nursing services like those available overseas. As a result, many expatriate retirees in Malaysia have to consider returning home in order to find the retirement services they need, at the quality they are accustomed to.
The Green Leaf Retirement Resort at Sepang intends to address this need for quality services by offering a lifestyle retirement solution for discerning retirees.
AN INTEGRATED RESORT FOR RETIREES
Situated under an hour away from the KL city centre and 20 minutes away from KLIA, The Green Leaf will be a waterfront destination resort built to the specifications of retirees and their various needs. It will not only feature a comprehensive range of hospitality services and retail outlets but will also include professional assisted living and nursing services.
The entire resort will be disabled friendly and will incorporate infrastructure for 24-hour medical services and emergency response along with a standalone 200-bed nursing facility.
This everything-under-one-roof concept offers residents unprecedented levels of convenience and enables The Green Leaf to address all the changing-care needs of retirees while allowing them the comfort of ‘aging-in-place’ without worry.
PROFESSIONAL AUSTRALIAN EXPERTISE
To ensure international standards of retiree care two Australian specialists, Village Care and Optimum Retirement Services, have been engaged in a long-term working partnership. They have been closely involved in the planning of The Green Leaf’s Assisted Living operations and will also be playing a long-term role in staff training and system auditing to ensure international standards of service are implemented and maintained.
Furthermore the development of the resort itself will be project managed by Australian-based Lend Lease, one of the world’s leading fully integrated property-solution providers with a reputation for quality.
A SUSTAINABLE ARRANGEMENT FOR LIFE
The Green Leaf has also developed an ownership framework that creates a legal arrangement to provide long-term care for its residents. This framework ensures that even in circumstances such as incapacitation; when one loses the ability to take care of himself, a resident may have the peace of mind that he will be well taken care of for the rest of his life according to his own pre-arranged instructions.
A QUALITY FOR LIFE UNTIL THE VERY END
By taking into account the long-term interests of its residents, The Green Leaf is focused on providing not only physical care, but also on emphasising the mental and social wellbeing of its residents with the aim of enhancing their quality of life until the very end.
