Wellness homes target active seniorsBusiness | Staff reporter 16 May 2018
A senior wellness hub will open in Kowloon City in June, targeting active senior residents.
The room rates start from HK$26,700 a month for a 350-square-foot care home while the largest 1,000-sq-ft three-bedroom care home will cost at least HK$50,000 a month.
The project is managed by Stan Group, and its hospitality operator Tang's Living Group, as well as local elderly operator Pine Care Group (1989).
Situated at 18 Junction Road, near St. Teresa Hospital, the Patina Wellness will offer a wide range of health and lifestyle services, said chairman of Stan Group Stan Tang Yiu-sing, adding it will also bring professional elderly care and community-style living.
The wellness hub comprises 79 residences in 24 stories, with 32 single rooms.
There are also one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments available. All of them include a balcony.
"This collaboration with Tang's Living Group enables us to expand our customers base to include active seniors who require a lower level of care compared with elderly of traditional residential care homes, said Billy Yim, chief executive of Pine Care Group.
Along with accommodation, Patina Wellness will offer healthy dining, concierge services, 24-hour nursing, as well as on-site therapeutic services.
Clubhouse and F&B facilities will include a full-service, health-focused restaurant, activities rooms, a swimming pool, fitness centres and gardens.
