Flexible & Independent Lifestyle
Residents enjoy companionship, social support, community spirit and security whilst maintaining a flexible and independent lifestyle. Social events, activities and outings, often arranged by our residents, are a big part of independent living at Juniper.

Offer And Acceptance
When you have decided to move to one of our retirement units, and the unit is vacant, make a formal written offer. You are also required to pay a Deposit and Administration Fee to secure the unit.
Once you have paid the Deposit and Administration Fee (and in cases where you have not completed an offer “subject to sale” or with other conditions), after all the conditions have been met, and you have a firm move-in date, Juniper will then prepare the Agreement document for you.
If you are willing and able to pay the standard charges for the unit offered to you, we do not require any information about your pension status, or other assets and income.
However, Juniper also strives to offer retirement living for our residents with limited means. So we provide some accommodation on a rental, or reduced fee basis for those meeting the criteria. Applicants must provide a Declaration of Income and Assets from Centrelink (contactable on 132 300) or DVA (contactable on 133 254).
If you have any questions, feel free to contact a Juniper Retirement Living Coordinator on site to discuss options and pricing.
We understand that your pet is an important part of your life. You will need to discuss your requirements with us before an agreement can be reached. Any such agreement will specify conditions with respect to cleanliness and hygiene, and will require that there is no interference with the rights and privacy of other residents.
If a resident is independently assessed as needing alternative accommodation (due to ill health or for any other reason), Juniper will make reasonable efforts to assist the resident locate and apply for suitable accommodation of the resident within a village, residential care facility, hostel, nursing home, hospital or other appropriate accommodation. However, Juniper is under no obligation to provide such alternative accommodation.
Your entry to residential aged care facilities and your eligibility to receive aged care support services are subject to availability, and to your ability to meet the eligibility and assessment requirements administered by the Commonwealth and/or State Government.
The resident must pay all fees and charges applicable to the alternative accommodation.
Feel free to contact Centrelink on 132 300 to discuss this question.
Of course! We understand that friends are a vital part of our residents’ life. However, there are a few rules to respect, in order to make sure everyone enjoys their stay whilst being safe. Residents are required to inform the manager of any short stay guests for fire and safety reasons. Prior approval must be obtained for longer stays (ie: more than 14 days in aggregate, for any 12 month period). Approval will not be unreasonably withheld, but may include conditions to preserve the amenity of other residents and an additional Service Fee to cover any increase in operating costs.
We’ve even gone the extra step to make your family and friends feel more welcome! Juniper Rowethorpe in Bentley has a one bedroom, self-contained Holiday Apartment available to visiting friends and family. Accommodating up to two persons, the apartment comes fully furnished with all kitchen equipment and linen at a very reasonable cost. Our administration staff can provide more information about this Holiday Apartment option.
Some Juniper retirement villages, which are co-located with Residential Aged Care Facilities, may offer optional services such as meals, cleaning and personal laundry on a fee-for-service basis.
From time to time, other service providers may be given access to the Juniper Village and residents may elect to use, or not use, their services.
Living at Juniper enables you to be involved in communal and social activities as you wish. The majority of organised activities are arranged by the residents themselves and many sites have social committees welcoming new members at any time and providing social support for everyone.
Senior health care is taken very seriously. Many Juniper communities are conveniently located close to local shopping centres and medical practices can be a short drive away.
Juniper Health operates Juniper Medical Centre at the Rowethorpe campus in Bentley. The Centre is open for patient consultations five days a week and is staffed by a part-time Practice Nurse and three attending GPs, who also make home visits to our onsite residential aged care facilities.
Juniper Day Therapy services are available from two metropolitan locations and include services such as Community Nursing, Podiatry, Physiotherapy, and Occupational Therapy.
Many Juniper retirement communities are located close to public transport for you to explore what is around!
