Our wellness mantra is 'live your life, forget your age', and we are fortunate to be joined by a Wellness Program Coordinator and Accredited Exercise Physiologist who live and breathe it. With an exercise physiology background successfully developing multiple wellness programs internationally, we’ve developed an exclusive evidence based program that delivers a revitalising service for our residents here at Ocean Gardens. Plus, the Wellness Program is complimentary for residents.

Our multi-faceted program has been designed around the nine dimensions of wellness.
The program is all about enhancing your quality of life through a holistic approach to wellbeing. With fun, social classes and activities, we help you manage chronic disease conditions, remain safe and well in your own homes longer and provide a level of vibrancy within the village. Ultimately, it’s about empowering you with greater confidence in yourself. And if that makes you willing to do more or try new things, we’ve done our job.
Our Wellness Team can also work alongside local physiotherapists to further assist you in any prehabilitation and rehabilitation programs, such as post-operative surgery, to ensure a smooth transition to recovery.
