PHB, UEM GROUP AND JAPAN’S MCS JOIN FORCES TO INTRODUCE MALAYSIA’S FIRST UNIQUE SENIOR LIVING PROJECT

KUALA LUMPUR. 9 March - A Consortium made-up of Pelaburan Hartanah Berhad (PHB), UEM Group Berhad (UEM Group) and Japan’s Medical Care Service Inc. (MCS) had today unveiled a Discovery Gallery of its joint project known as Rei Seraya Residence (Rei Seraya), Malaysia’s first unique and luxury senior living with care services project.

Rei Seraya, is designed by a renowned Australian architect who specialises in senior living and will be operated by MCS, one of Japan’s leading care providers with over 15 years of experience.

Rei Seraya is set to cater exclusively for the senior retired community and will be the first luxury senior living with proficient care services providing two types of options, both of which can be viewed at the Discovery Gallery:

  • Assisted Living – a 300 square feet (sq. ft.) unit with en-suite bathroom within an exclusive household concept, providing medium to high care services for residents with 100 single rooms en-suite available. Type of care provided ranges from dementia, respite palliative and day care services.
  • Independent Living – a 900 sq. ft. unit with the concept of luxury apartments consisting of 230 units of two-bedroom apartments with en-suite bathroom, kitchen and living room, and care services provided upon request by the residents.

The unveiling of the Rei Seraya Discovery Gallery was officiated by representatives of the Consortium – Datuk Kamalul Arifin Othman, Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of PHB, Dato’ Izzaddin Idris, Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of UEM Group and Grace Wang, Vice President, Overseas Management Division Director of MCS.

Speaking at the opening today, Datuk Kamalul Arifin said, “The Malaysian national and local government bodies acknowledged that there is a need for accommodation and care for the ageing population. Malaysia’s population is increasing steadily with age and by 2020, 10 percent of the country’s population will be above the age of 60 and by 2030, the percentage of people aged above 60 will increase to 15 percent. This demographic reality will undoubtedly have profound economic and social implications, as well as new healthcare concerns, leading to opportunities.”

He added, “This presents an opportunity for the consortium to offer a world class senior living development, right here in Kuala Lumpur, not less than what you would have found in other developed countries.”

Rei Seraya Discovery Gallery is located at Jalan Ampang, adjacent to Gleneagles Hospital.

Dato’ Izzaddin Idris explained that the decision to open a Discovery Gallery (as opposed to a Sales Gallery) is to allow the market to understand the product and services being offered given that it is a new and unique concept in Malaysia.

“The Discovery Gallery also provides an opportunity for us to showcase a building that’s senior friendly and care services by number one senior living care provider in Japan. While we have conducted a market research and the results is very convincing, we would like to gather additional feedback and interest from the public which would allow us to further fine-tune the service offering based on local interest and demand,” added Dato’ Izzaddin.“The Discovery Gallery also provides an opportunity for us to showcase a building that’s senior friendly and care services by number one senior living care provider in Japan.

Care services at Rei Seraya will be provided by MCS, a Japan-based company that has been providing care services for the elderly since 1999 and operates more than 280 facilities in Japan, China and Philippines.

Grace Wang of MCS said, “We are eager to introduce the quality of our Japanese care services in Malaysia and we hope that through the Discovery Gallery, the public in Kuala Lumpur will get to know more about the possibility of high-end senior care”.

Rei Seraya Discovery Gallery is open to the public from 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. on weekdays and from 10.00 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. on weekends.
