Innovative contemporary living is a hallmark of Juniper’s newest retirement living community which was officially opened in Menora on Thursday 23 April.
Chief Executive Vaughan Harding said the Juniper Elimatta Retirement Living project demonstrates the organisation’s forward thinking response to meeting the needs of older Western Australians.
“Juniper Elimatta Retirement Living successfully promotes apartments for life and ‘ageing in place’ – a concept where housing and community design enable residents to live and enjoy their home for as long as possible,” Vaughan said.
“The project demonstrates the best in retirement housing where residents enjoy independence as well as companionship, wellbeing and security that come from community living.”
Vaughan said the project is part of a range of State-wide retirement housing, home care support and residential care services Juniper is delivering to meet the massive increase in demand expected over the next decade.
In 2014, the organisation created 16 new apartments at Juniper Ron Wilson House in Bentley to deliver greater choice for people seeking more affordable accommodation. Additional retirement villas are now under construction next to that facility.
New services are being delivered regionally and other projects will see the revitalisation of Juniper Chrystal Halliday in Karrinyup and plans for new facilities at Juniper Boronia Court in Albany are being developed.
A second stage apartment development at Juniper Elimatta Retirement Living is planned subject to market demand and approvals.
Located on Bradford Street in Menora, Juniper Elimatta Retirement Living Stage 1 comprises 17 modern villas around a contemporary clubhouse, opened by Juniper Board Chair Fred Boshart and Uniting Church in WA Moderator Rev Steve Francis.
