Care, Community, and Connection
Acacia Cove Retirement Village’s priorities have remained steadfast during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Acacia Cove has always prided itself on a strong sense of
family and community, and the lockdown during Covid-19
has only enhanced the vibrancy of the village. Care was a top priority at all times and, whilst a global pandemic can
induce anxiety, long-time manager Bruce Cullington has
maintained the community and care aspect while providing
extra support and assistance to the residents.
From very early on during the Covid-19 lockdown Bruce
and his team knew that their community would need to be cared for and monitored closely for symptoms, so
even going to the supermarket was difficult right from
the start. As a solution, Acacia Cove set up a “mini mart”
with approximately $8000 worth of groceries purchased,
packaged, and delivered to residents per week. This is a testament to the hard work, enthusiasm, and genuine
care Bruce and the staff have always maintained.
“The flexibility shown by my staff was
amazing. On a personal level, I found
it very rewarding to stand in for the
families that were unable to visit.”
Acacia Cove promotes an active lifestyle for the residents
and Bruce says it’s been amazing to see residents taking
responsibility for their wellness during the lockdown. The
Village has encouraged extra walking and cycling for fitness,
but Bruce noted that he’d seen more people exercising
than ever before, some residents were meeting others for
the first time as they were trying new experiences.
As a lot of the residents live alone and have been missing out on their usual family visits, the staff have also been
calling every few days to check-in, have a chat, and make
sure they’re coping ok. Birthdays that have landed during
lockdown have seen the staff serenading residents outside
their villas! They’ve had morning and afternoon tea parties
at their letterboxes and driveways as well as evening drinks.
“Acacia Cove has always been an incredibly
social environment so it’s been great to see this held strong, and perhaps even
increased during the lockdown period.”
While the lockdown and Covid-19 experience has been
challenging for us all, it’s inspiring to see how much it’s
brought people together especially in elderly, vulnerable,
and at-risk communities.
Bruce welcomes people to find out more about
retirement village living and invites you to pay the village a visit.
