The phrase location, location, location certainly rings true for 87-year-old Margaret Stuart, who has everything she needs in a retirement home – right next to her former family home.
After living next to Baptistcare William Carey Court Retirement Village for 23 years, Margaret and her late husband David made the move next door in 2014.
“It was just what we were looking for. It was somewhere that needed less maintenance, but the best part was that it was still in the same fabulous location, just a stone’s throw from the beach,” Margaret said.
A few years later, when David’s health began to decline, he moved into the Baptistcare residential care facility alongside Baptistcare’s retirement village, making it easy for his wife to visit him every day.
“David had access to constant support from carers and I could still be with him during those difficult years, but live my own life independently,” Margaret said.
David passed away in 2018 and Margaret has continued to live at Baptistcare William Carey Court Retirement Village surrounded by her many friends.
In 2020, when Margaret found she needed help with maintenance around her home, Baptistcare Home Care was on hand to help.
“There’s a level of independence that comes from having home care services. It has made a world of a difference having someone do the cleaning, gardening and driving for me,” said Margaret, who continues to embrace Busselton’s laid-back lifestyle.
“It’s such a big help to have meals delivered, and it’s a bonus that they are some of the most delicious meals I’ve ever had!” Margaret said.
“I have really been able to reclaim my life and make the most of it by not having to worry about the little things at home.”
