Freedom Amenities & Lifestyle

It’s all about lifestyle. (And living every day to the full!)

Everyone has their own unique reasons for choosing a home in a retirement community such as Freedom Launceston. Some choose it for the opportunity to be free of the burden of maintenance and gardens; others see the value in the companionship and friendship that comes through activities and belonging to a community; nearly everyone agrees that it is the sense of lifestyle and security being amongst like-minded people; and family will tell you that it’s the peace of mind knowing support is only a call away.

We encourage our residents to benefit from the huge variety of daily activities available to make them feel more at home in our community. With 24 villas, 4 units and 30 apartments, there’s always someone to enjoy a drink with at our regular happy hours and other organised events. All villas and units are designed to give full independence in two and three bedroom floor plans with modern styling and fittings.

Our residents enjoy doing the activities they love:

  • Working together and maintaining the beautiful community garden
  • Sharing tools, learning new skills or keeping old ones honed in the Men’s Shed
  • Relaxing in the common area with manicured gardens
  • Teaming up for a game of indoor bowls
  • Joining in a card game

Frequently Asked Questions

Want to know more, or have a different question? Send us a message and we will be happy to help!

Can I bring my pet?

Pets are welcome at Freedom Aged Care Launceston and actively encouraged.  Your pet will be assessed when you join Freedom, to ensure they will fit in to the community and thrive as part of the Freedom family.  Read more about our pet-friendly communities here.

Can I have my family and friends visit anytime I want?

Yes! We love having visitors and do not have set visiting hours.  It is your Freedom home, so you can have visitors as you please and they can even stay overnight with you if you wish. 

What type of daily activities occur at your community?

There is always something going on at our Freedom communities, arranged by the onsite team and tailored to each community, a calendar of events will be displayed in your community newsletter or noticeboard.  Whether it be a bus trip, indoor bowls, themed lunch, or Happy Hour, there is something for everyone in our vibrant communities.  Find out more here.

Will I be separated from my spouse or partner?

At Freedom, couples stay together. We are totally committed to ensuring couples stay together, regardless of their changing health needs.  Find out more about living at Freedom as a couple here.

What is the difference between Freedom Aged Care and a nursing home?

At Freedom you will have your own private self-contained home, whereas nursing homes are typically in communal buildings, where you have limited privacy and independence.  As a genuine alternative to a nursing home, you will have access to 24-hour aged care that evolves with you through all stages of your journey.  From everyday support for those with minimal care needs (such as assistance with cleaning, nutrition, or social activities), high clinical care, dementia and memory impairment therapy, and palliative care when the time comes.  Balanced with activities, social interaction and entertainment, providing total quality of life for those living there, rather than focusing on only immediate care like most nursing homes.  At Freedom you can continue to live with your spouse and pets and keep your family together, whereas this is not always possible in a nursing home.  More about our home care communities here.

What are the costs?

Freedom residents purchase their home under a 99-year lease, there is an initial purchase price of your new Freedom home and weekly fees for the community services and 24/7 personal care. Weekly services charges and care fees are set at a level that covers Freedom’s costs and no more, and those on the Age Pension can defer a portion of these costs. Residents can also access government-funded care packages that help cover the cost of care, and can be used toward purchasing equipment and consumables. 

 

At the end of your time with Freedom, Freedom keeps a percentage of the resale price of your Freedom home, which is known as a deferred management fee (DMF). The DMF covers the costs involved in providing all the wonderful amenities you enjoy as a resident in your village community. This DMF is set as a percentage of the property’s value when it is sold on to its next resident, with a higher percentage returned to you, or your estate. We encourage all parties relevant to the decision making process to meet with our sales consultants, who will provide a detailed overview of Freedom’s fee structure and answer any questions you may have. We are completely transparent about any costs and if you would like any more information please feel free to call us on 1800 647 813 or enquire here.
