RSL LifeCare has announced the stage 2 release of its Dumaresq Retirement Village at RSL LifeCare Nowra Community, setting a new standard in retirement living. Nestled on the picturesque South Coast of NSW, this expansion introduces a wealth of offerings and services, transforming the village into a unique community catering to all retirement needs.
The Dumaresq Retirement Village features thoughtfully designed villas, providing spacious living spaces, ensuite bathrooms, and convenient parking. The centrepiece of the community is the beautifully restored Heritage Clubhouse, known as “RSL LifeCare Nowra House.” This purpose-built facility fosters connection and recreation, offering residents and guests access to a main dining room, lounge area, a communal kitchen and dining space, two expansive verandas, and an onsite Village Manager office.
Going beyond traditional retirement living, the RSL LifeCare Nowra Community offers an array of health and well-being support services, including RSL LifeCare at Home, the purpose-built RSL LifeCare Nowra Veteran Wellbeing Centre, and the Jonathan Rogers GC House residential aged care home on-site.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom villas are designed to harmonise with the surrounding gardens and bushland, featuring L-shaped kitchens, private front entrances, and spacious balconies (above). Security and peace of mind are paramount, with the inclusion of a nurse call system.
Dumaresq Retirement Village also offers personalised services through RSL LifeCare at Home, encompassing domestic assistance, transportation, respite care, and personal support. The local RSL LifeCare at Home team understands the unique needs of each resident and provides tailored assistance, including guidance on government funding options.
RSL LifeCare CEO Janet Muir said, “We are thrilled to release the next stage of RSL LifeCare Nowra Community, Dumaresq Retirement Village, setting a new benchmark for holistic retirement living. With the integration of the Nowra Veteran Wellbeing Centre, Home Care services and the Jonathan Rogers GC House aged care home, RSL LifeCare Nowra Community redefines the concept of comprehensive care and support within a vibrant community. This expansion reflects our unwavering dedication to providing veterans and seniors with an elevated lifestyle, surrounded by natural beauty, and supported by an all-encompassing network of services.”
The RSL LifeCare Nowra Veteran Wellbeing Centre, in collaboration with RSL NSW, offers a range of services for veterans and their families, including financial assistance, referrals, legal aid, and counselling.
For residents whose needs evolve, the community includes Jonathan Rogers GC House, a 68-bed aged care home, providing a seamless transition to residential aged care while maintaining strong ties to the cherished community.
