Shah Alam, Nov 29: By 2030, Malaysia anticipates transitioning into an ageing society, with citizens aged 60 and above constituting 15 per cent of the population.
The evolving lifestyles of the younger generation pose challenges for the elderly, who often face perceptions of incapability and increased dependence.
Addressing these needs, there is a growing demand for additional full-board residences across the country.
Pacific Senior Living (PSL), the emerging senior living brand under Columbia Pacific Management Group, has proudly unveiled its inaugural senior living residence, Acacia, in the Royal City of Klang, Malaysia. Officially inaugurated by the Sultan of Selangor, His Royal Highness Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, this landmark property is strategically located in the heart of Klang, providing holistic well-being and rejuvenation for seniors aged 60 and above.
As Malaysia heads towards surpassing 20 per cent of its population aged 65 and above by 2056, earning the designation of a “super-aged nation,” Pacific Senior Living is committed to meeting this demographic shift. Carl Nicholas Isaac, CEO of Pacific Senior Living Sdn. Bhd. expressed enthusiasm about Acacia, their purpose-built assisted and independent living residence in the vibrant Klang Valley.
As Klang progresses towards being recognized as the fourth city in Selangor and 20th in the country, Acacia is poised to offer efficient, high-quality, and internationally standardized services to meet the growing demand for innovative senior living solutions in the Klang Valley.
Demonstrating a sustainability approach, Acacia transformed a former 4-star hotel, the Merrida Hotel, which ceased operations during the MCO, into a multi-story residence with 136 meticulously crafted rooms.
These rooms include Superior, Executive, and Premier Room options, each featuring thoughtful elements such as anti-fall furnishings and ergonomic layouts.
The property offers a range of amenities, including a swimming pool, heated Jacuzzi, BBQ area, entertainment room, billiard and mahjong tables, along with specialized facilities like in-house physiotherapy services and hobby workshops.
Introducing the Silver Club, a unique daycare service, Pacific Senior Living aims to provide comprehensive care and engaging activities for seniors every day from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
This initiative enhances the convenience and peace of mind for those seeking flexible senior care solutions, reflecting Pacific Senior Living’s dedication to enhancing the quality of life for seniors.
In alignment with Columbia Asia as their strategic healthcare partner, Acacia offers pre-medical assessments, scheduled visits from healthcare professionals, and 24/7 access to experienced Wellness Associates.
The residence also provides supervised medication and supplement administration, along with gourmet meals customized to individual nutritional plans crafted by expert nutritionists.
Nate McLemore, Global Managing Director of Columbia Pacific Management, emphasized the importance of respecting seniors’ desires for connection, a vibrant life, and quality healthcare.
The successful opening of Acacia marks the convergence of a strong investment climate, increasing demand for high-quality senior living services, and the warm hospitality of the Malaysian people.
For those eager to explore Acacia and its offerings, public tours are available to learn about the lifestyle and environment of this purpose-built assisted and independent living community.
Early bird promotions are being offered for those interested in experiencing the distinctive features designed to enhance senior living at Acacia PSL.
