Aveo Durack has completed its integrated retirement community
ONE of the largest retirement communities in Queensland has just completed its flagship integrated retirement living community in Brisbane’s south.
Aveo Group has unveiled its $36 million aged care home at Aveo Durack, meaning the community now offers residents the full spectrum of care in one location.
Aveo Group Integrated Retirement Communities executive general manager Jason Eldering said the addition of the facility complemented the current range of independent living options, offering a community for life to its residents.
“Aveo Durack is one of our most popular communities and we’ve invested more than $66 million into reinvigorating the existing structures and developing brand new retirement living, care and leisure facilities within the community,” Mr Eldering said.
“Aveo Durack is our flagship integrated retirement community and has grown to include 629 residences across independent Living Units and Serviced Apartments, in addition to the 123 beds in our brand new aged care home.”
Mr Eldering said it was important that the village amenities, such as the $1.8 million new community centre and restaurant, went above and beyond expectations.
“Community living brings people together and provides an opportunity for shared experiences. It’s at the heart of everything we do,” he said.
“We know that providing a diverse range of retirement options is increasingly important to our current and future residents.
“More than ever, we’re finding that older Australians are looking for retirement options that allow them make the most of their retirement — whether that’s pursuing new hobbies, travelling or making new friends, retirement communities need to provide more than just a ‘roof over your head.’”
Aveo Durack is set within 34 hectares of natural bushland and lush gardens and located 17 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD.
It features a new community centre, on-site medical centre (UQ Health Care), allied health, hairdressing salon, restaurant, lounge, library, tennis court, bowling green, fitness centre, croquet green and swimming pool.
Aveo Durack has a range of two and three-bedroom independent Living Units starting from $234,000.
Aveo Group currently homes 13,000 residents in 90 retirement villages across Australia.
