A. Retirement Villages are designed with a range of accommodation choices to suit individual tastes and needs with facilities and services that support seniors over 60 to enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle with like-minded residents within a community setting. Our villages range from smaller individual units or apartments through to larger resort style villages with a range of homes and facilities.
A. All apartments include the following quality fixtures and fittings as standard: • Dishwasher • Oven, cook top and range hood • Reverse cycle air-conditioning in living area and master bedroom • Hard-wired smoke detectors • Intercom for identifying guests • Floor coverings • Emergency call system • Pre-wired for TV and broadband
Q. Can apartments be personalised?
A. We encourage you to make your apartment feel like home with the addition of curtains/ window coverings etc. To ensure that village standards are maintained, that additions do not interfere with neighbours, and that works are conducted by qualified tradespeople with proper insurances and warranties, you are required to submit requests for review and approval by Azure Blue prior to any works commencing.
Q. Are there any ongoing costs associated with my purchase?
A. As a resident, you pay a monthly fee to cover the cost of running the village and to maintain it. This monthly fee is made up of a General Service Charge (GSC) (which includes: council rates; maintenance; building insurance; gardening and general services) and Maintenance Reserve Fund (MRF) which provides for current and future maintenance and repairs of the capital items of the village for both the apartments and the common areas of the village.
Q. If in the future my partner or I need full nursing care, can I be assured of a room in Blue Care’s residential aged care facility if I live at Azure Blue Redcliffe?
A. We aim to help partners remain together longer. Should either of your care needs change, we would endeavour to relocate you into Blue Care’s residential aged care facility, providing you are eligible under the Government’s My Aged Care assessment process.
Q. I currently receive in-home community care. Can this continue when I move into Azure Blue Redcliffe?
A. Yes, you can continue receiving existing community care / packages when you move in.
Q. Do you have an emergency response system in place?
A. Yes, we have a 24-hour emergency alert system.
Q. Can I have visitors stay over?
A. Friends and family are most welcome. For extended stays it is best to speak to our village manager regarding any guidelines.
