Health oriented: HSB Development is offering 'medically enabled homes' which it says are the first of their kind in Malaysia and in the region.

THE ARAGREENS development HSB Development comprises two component, Aragreens Residences and Aragreens Village.

For the past two years, the focus has been on Aragreens Residences Project. The project successfully integrates the concept of green building design, multi-generation living, and health and wellness. With six towers of services apartments with a total of 700 units, the developer is able to allocate 63.4% for landscaping out of the entire 7.5 acres of land, providing 26 recreational facilities that caters for all ages. One of the intention is to create a communal aspect by having a community whereby the residents can get to enjoy, share and mingle.

Aragreens Residences offer various types of units ranging from two-bedroom units with the size of 684sqft to six-bedroom garden villas with a spacious built-up areas of 3,831sq ft. With health and wellness concept in mind, the developer further established a “Medically Enabled Home”, which is the first of its kind in Malaysia and in the region.

Each Medically Enabled Home is equipped with the MediHome System. MediHome is a proprietary system from MobileHealth2U which is currently made exclusively to Aragreens Residences. It comes with wireless health monitoring devices such as blood pressure monitoring and blood sugar monitoring.

Smartphones and web browsers can easily retrieve the data and share it with family doctors. Besides having health monitoring devices, the architectural design of Aragreens Residences ensures that they are wheelchair friendly, elderly friendly and also child friendly. There is a 1.4km jogging track within Aragreens for those who are active or to those who prefer to have a stroll in the morning or evening.

The facilities are meant for all ages as multi-generational living is a major aspect of the development. Globally, especially among Asians, demand for multi-generational homes are increasing. The richness, texture and continuity of traditions in a multi-generational household are unmatchable.

Children absorb learning in so many ways from their grandparents, from language, values and etiquette. Their parents are given support in child raising, and elders feel secure and cared for when they are staying together. Thus, the developer designed the dual-key layouts to support multi generation living that doesn’t compromise on privacy.

All units in Aragreens Residences are partially furnished with brands and products meticulously selected by the developer to give the best value to buyers.

All this is currently being displayed at Aragreens sales gallery.

This year, HSB Development is officially launching the Aragreens Village project. Meanwhile, expected to be complete in 2017, Aragreens Village is an important component of the project that provides support services and also completes the total living environment for Aragreens Residences. Sitting on 1.3 acres next to Aragreens Residences, the project comprises a medical tower and a commercial tower.

Aragreens Village will provides the necessary amenities for shopping, dining, leisure, entertainment, wellness and health.

One of the highlights in the Aragreens Village is the Nursing Services. A joint venture between HSC HeathCare and Japan Medical Care Service, a true Japanese style nursing facility will be operating in the medical tower.

The Japanese nursing provider was chosen mainly because of its experiences in delivering high-quality services, experience and care management.

For further information, there will be a talk on the Japanese nursing services on June 21 at the Aragreens sales gallery.
