Where quality of life meets state-of-the-art care
The Terraces is a welcoming environment with access to tranquil, open spaces and walking tracks surrounding Lake Orr on the Gold Coast. We are Commonwealth funded and offer a full range of care, including respite, in our purpose-built assisted living centre. We look forward to speaking with you about how we can provide the right accommodation for your loved ones at The Terraces.
Your room is your sanctuary
The rooms at The Terraces are modern, spacious, well equipped and a place to feel totally at home.
We have a selection of spacious single private rooms or adjoining couples rooms in our super suites.
A tasteful decorating palette and quality furnishings ensure a relaxed ambience and personal touches are welcomed. All rooms are appointed with fully featured ensuites and generous built-in robes, emergency call buttons and provision for phone, free to air and cable television.
Space for everyone
The Terraces takes advantage of its generous size by ensuring that space is never at a premium.
Large living areas are a feature and the contemporary design allows for an abundance of natural light throughout, creating a warm and open feeling.
Of course, there are many smaller, intimate areas that allow time in the sun or a quiet chat with other residents and staff. Thoughtful design allows visiting friends and families to feel at home as well,
and we always encourage that.
Food and nutrition
Enjoyable mealtimes are something that all residents look forward to. The fresh, nutritious menus at The Terraces change daily and we serve satisfying breakfasts, hearty lunches and light, healthy evening meals from our restaurant-standard kitchen.
Our in-house Food Services Manager and kitchen staff prepare meals from the freshest possible ingredients and we are able to cater for special dietary needs. Morning and afternoon refreshments are available from the coffee shop and tea and coffee is available for residents and guests at all times.
Leisure and lifestyle
Community life is an important part of living at The Terraces. We have extensive daily lifestyle programs that encourage participation in a range of activities including gentle and advanced exercise, music, games and sport.
Keeping busy, staying active and enjoying time together is part of life at The Terraces. We know that a sense of purpose and fulfillment is vital and we offer activities that maintain physical movement, stimulate mental alertness, create social interaction and pursue cultural and spiritual endeavours.
We’re all part of the same family
The Terraces is Commonwealth funded and part of the McKenzie Aged Care Group, an Australian, family-owned organisation. We know how to create an environment where family is the focus. That means children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters – everyone is welcome.
The same goes for our staff. We want them to feel part of the family and know that we value
and support them. We are proud of them and like us, they recognise that it is actually a privilege
to work with the aged.
