This may seem and odd question, but my elderly mother has severe arthritis and is already feeling the effect of the cold on her mobility in May (we live in Canberra, I should mention!)
I thought we might take her up to sunny Queensland in the next school holidays (July) to escape some of Canberra's winter.
I am wondering if anyone can recommend somewhere to stay for a week that would have a nice heated pool with good access into it (i.e. safety rail to hold onto while she's getting in, or lagoon style entry, where you have a beach and it gradually gets deeper - she is 86!) A heated spa would be good too!
A few years ago we stayed at the Currumbin Sands Resort and enjoyed it very much, the pool did have a good safety rail but we were there in summer, just wondering how the temperatures are in the pools during winter. I think Mum would really benefit from the exercise in warm water to unstiffen her limbs. (she's getting to the stage where it's difficult for her to walk)
We would be looking at a 2 brm place preferably on the ground floor or in a place that has lifts.
I'd welcome any suggestions.
Thanks in advance!
