Health and wellness at The Richardson.
The superb wellness facilities at The Richardson are some of the many features that set it apart from more traditional aged care homes.
The on-site health and wellness facilities are available for all residents at The Richardson to use year-round.
Through our planned lifestyle activities calendar, regular physical activity and socialisation is encouraged to maintain overall health and wellbeing of residents, as well as assist in post-surgery recovery and management of pain and health conditions.
The vibrant pool deck serves as the central hub of The Richardson’s Lifestyle & Wellness Centre. It offers a versatile space where residents can engage in invigorating exercise sessions or unwind and float leisurely. With the introduction of our new poolside hoist, accessibility is ensured for all residents.
Our pool holds significant importance in our personalised programs, as the warm water provides a soothing and gentle method for residents to alleviate conditions such as arthritis, rheumatism, poor circulation and sore muscles. It is a therapeutic haven for relaxation and rejuvenation.
To promote a sense of togetherness, we warmly welcome residents’ family members to make use of the pool facilities during their visits to our home. It creates an opportunity for shared experiences and cherished moments.
Residents have full use of our well-quipped gymnasium, with an award-winning allied health and rehabilitation service provider located in-house. Beyond the general allied health services of physiotherapy, occupational therapy and podiatry, The Richardson’s Vitality+ Wellness Packages provide residents with an individually tailored program aimed at improving physical health, no matter your level of fitness.
Our tailored programs include:
- FALLS & BALANCE
To improve balance and function to reduce the risk of falls.
- STRENGTH & MOBILITY
For residents with orthopaedic conditions (e.g. Rotator cuff, post-surgery).
For residents with neurological conditions who usually require two practitioners to assist for mobility or transfers (e.g. Parkinson’s Disease, MS, post-stroke).
