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 impressive pool deck is the hub of The Richardson’s Lifestyle and Wellness Centre – a place to enjoy an exercise session or simply float and relax. The pool plays an important role in our personalised programs as warm water is an easy and relaxing way for residents to treat arthritis, rheumatism, poor circulation and sore muscles. Residents’ family members are welcome to use the pool facilities during their visits.
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).
