The Circles Care Hub will be the meeting place of the elderly – the independent as well as those requiring care.
“Circles” signifies the circle of life, that life is a constant loop and that each member of the family at Circles will be at a different point in their life. It also represents the family circle and the circle of friends.
The integrated care hub, targeted to be launched in the first quarter of 2015, will offer the Circles of 5 covering the pertinent areas in the wellbeing of the elderly:
- Physical – Assisted care, rehabilitation services, wellness monitoring, education, fitness, F&B, relaxation and medical care.
- Mental – Cognitive coaching, verbal skills, skills training and creative arts.
- Emotional – Counselling and therapy, support groups and talks.
- Social – Networking, community-based programmes and recreation.
- Financial – Education, advisory, will writing, asset management and insurance.
Circles will be housed in Wisma Mirama, on Jalan Wisma Putra, less than 2km away from the shopping paradise of Jalan Imbi and Jalan Bukit Bintang in Kuala Lumpur, and close to some of the sights of KL, like the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, the Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower.
Historically, the location is quite nostalgic as it lies within close vicinity to the old Istana Negara, the National Mosque, Stadium Merdeka, Kuen Cheng High School (formerly known as the Kuen Cheng Girls’ High School) and just opposite from Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka.
Circles’ location is ideal because of its accessibility by train. The closest LRT and Monorail stations are the Maharajalela Monorail Station and the Hang Tuah LRT Station.
Circles seeks to be a hub for the elderly as well as their families and caregivers and a one-stop centre for integrated care.
It will offer care as well as retail, awareness programmes, activities and events – all targeted to help enrich the lives of the elderly and rejuvenate and energise them to live their best life.
