Sunway Sanctuary, Malaysia’s premier senior living community, is celebrating its first anniversary, highlighting its mission to promote active ageing and the significant milestones achieved in redefining retirement living. Over the past year, Sunway Sanctuary has become a beacon of lifestyle-oriented retirement living for Malaysia’s growing Gen X population and beyond.

Sunway Sanctuary has distinguished itself by achieving a 30% to 35% occupancy rate within its first year. This success reflects a growing trend among seniors who seek a vibrant, health focused retirement lifestyle. Malaysia’s high quality of life and favourable currency exchange rates have also positioned the country as an attractive retirement destination, drawing significant interest from neighbouring Singapore.

“We aim to offer options for seniors who seek an active and healthy lifestyle after their retirement,” stated Dr. Khoo Chow Huat, Managing Director of Hospital & Healthcare Operations at Sunway Healthcare Group. “We are committed to curating an environment where seniors can thrive, maintain their independence, and enjoy an enriched quality of life, with wellness services and recreational activities at their doorstep. Being adjacent to Sunway Medical Centre, and with our comprehensive and integrated health services such as Sunway Home Healthcare and Sunway TCM Centre, seniors will have the peace of mind that their healthcare needs are well taken care of.”

Sunway Sanctuary has focused on meeting the evolving preferences of Gen X retirees, who favour trendy, lifestyle-oriented retirement options. The establishment’s proximity to the state-of-the-art Sunway Medical Centre has further enhanced its appeal, offering residents convenient access to comprehensive healthcare services.

In its inaugural year, Sunway Sanctuary was recognised at the 12th Eldercare Innovation Awards 2024 in Singapore with prestigious accolades, including the Facility of the Year – Active Ageing (Centre-Based) award and the Design of the Year – Dining Space award; a testament to Sunway Sanctuary’s ongoing goal of providing innovative programmes in a space of purposeful design that emphasises comfort, safety and accessibility.

“These awards validate our efforts to create an environment that supports active ageing and exceptional design. We are honoured to be recognised on such a distinguished platform” said Dr. Khoo. To further enhance its offerings, Sunway Sanctuary has introduced the Sanctuary Club, a dynamic clubhouse concept designed to foster community, health, and lifelong learning. This vibrant hub offers a comprehensive array of activities, including fitness classes, social activities, educational workshops, and wellness programmes. With three membership tiers – Bronze, Silver, and Gold – Sanctuary Club accommodates the diverse needs and preferences of active seniors.

Additionally, the Senior Short Stay programme “Care Stay Package” provides a safe and engaging environment for seniors while their families travel. This programme offers customisable stays with meals included – from a few days to weeks or longer – with a focus on personalised care, social interaction, and healthcare support.
