What is a Senior Living Residential Community?
There are a number of specialised communities for seniors. This can range from Assisted Living, Nursing Homes to Respite Care Homes.
With Active Senior Living, the community is made up of residents who are 55 years of age and more. It is residential development where seniors can have independence, privacy, security, convenience, supported by a spectrum of care facilities as well as actvities that can be tailored to individuals and the community. There is healthy social interaction amongst residents which forges a strong sense of friendship and bonding.
Why Senior Living – The Market Demand
Seniors Living is one of the fastest growing sectors in the world today. Our rapidly ageing communities and changing way of life is requiring new and more varied products to cater for the increased demand by the over 60 age group. These products must cater for the more demanding needs of today’s seniors: hospitality and care services delivered to the home while living in a community of people with similar interests utilizing recreation, wellness and other community facilities and services.
Currently over 65s makes up 5.0% of the Malaysian population but by the year 2040 this number will have risen to 14.5% according to findings by Department of Statistics Malaysia. All of our closest neighbours: Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia, among others, are all experiencing the same change in their demographics too. In fact, the entire world population is ageing rapidly and this presents us with a clear opportunity to create and provide new and exciting products to cater for this increased market demand.
Western countries have a long history in such products and have learned much about how to provide seniors communities. Mandarin Gardens is utilizing the experience of an Australian operator and combining it with local culture and needs to provide a unique and appealing product to allow residents to live a productive, happy, lifestyle in a safe and caring community. Well trained staff will deliver services at a standard which, until now, have not been available for our seniors. Retirees can live with luxury, convenience, healthcare and a vibrant social life all at their door, in a well-managed environment designed with comfort, security and wellbeing as its highest priorities. This is independent living for seniors at its best, where seniors are respected and provided with the services and facilities they deserve.
