Healthy Ageing Approach

We believe that older people should continue to live full and active lives in our Residential Living Homes.

ACH Group’s Healthy Ageing approach will help you remain physically, mentally and socially active.

Research around the world has shown that people who are active and socially connected are happier and have a better sense of wellbeing and overall health, regardless of age or health status.

Dedicated Healthy Ageing staff at our Residential Care homes work with you to identify a tailored and structured wellbeing plan that includes supporting your physical, emotional and social health. Should you experience a step backwards, our early intervention approach gives you the best opportunity to regain optimal health.

Good health and wellness is an easy choice through a wide range of activities and programs including:

  • On-site gyms with personal trainers in all residential care facilities, walking groups and exercise classes
  • Social events and outings, arts and cultural activities, men’s groups and strong community links
  • Education about a range of health conditions to promote better awareness
  • Trained staff who focus on supporting you to be as independent as possible

In addition, your family and friends can remain integral to everyday life, with plenty of opportunities for all generations to come together over coffee, BBQs or to join in social activities.

To find out more about how we support you living a good life, call our friendly team on 8159 3530.

Resident Profile - Meet Petrie

Petrie has lived and travelled around Australia and overseas much of her life. Petrie was living in Holland before coming back to Australia again a few years ago to be close to her family here again. Petrie had been used to living in big houses with gardens but also in high-rise and apartment buildings in many different cities. She was very pleased to discover a similar apartment lifestyle option for her retirement when coming back to Adelaide. When she found Spence on Light, she fell in love with everything it offers: the cosmopolitan location, the beautiful sunset views from her balcony, the contemporary design of the apartment and friendly neighbours.

Petrie added “I don’t like traffic and I am used to good public transport, so this suits my lifestyle and not needing a car. I’m still working part time for myself and for the University of Adelaide which is walking distance. As I live on the top floor of Spence on Light, I feel as if I now have my own little penthouse.”

Petrie loves having easy access to all that Adelaide CBD has to offer culturally, plus the social interaction with other residents, but also enjoys her own space. She said “The beauty of living in an apartment is that you can be apart when you want to be. It’s so private and yet secure here!”
