BlueCross Chelsea Manor in Chelsea provides permanent care with ageing in place and dementia specific accommodation as well as respite care (short term accommodation in a nursing home) to 70 residents.
Perched among manicured private gardens, graceful Chelsea Manor is close to Bicentennial Park, the leisure facilities of neighbouring Chelsea Reserve and local shops. The building is a tribute to neoclassic design with stained glass windows flanking the front door, a vintage style chandelier, an atrium with a waterfall in the foyer, flowing corridors and vaulted ceilings.
Our registered nurses, as well as highly trained personal care and hospitality staff are attentive to all your needs.
We invite you to come and experience Chelsea Manor's uncompromising quality of care and idyllic lifestyle.
Quality aged care and social lifestyle in the heart of Chelsea
FeaturesBlueCross Chelsea Manor comprises a choice of pristine living spaces, a series of landscaped private courtyards, and amenities such as a coffee shop, theatrette and hair salon.
A serene tropical aquarium, deep armchairs, gas fireplace, piano and large screen television make the main lounge in the low care wing perfect for relaxing or enjoying entertainment. The space opens onto the large formal dining area and the private dining room nearby is perfect for intimate celebrations with your family and friends.
Outside, an elegant gazebo among the box hedges and rose bushes in the central garden provides shelter and a place to linger with a book, while the Anzac Garden with its flagpole is ready for memorial and thanksgiving services.
In Windsor House, Chelsea Manor's dementia wing, a soothing tropical fish tank, calming colour palette, comfortable seats and access to a secure garden complement the main lounge and dining area.
BlueCross Chelsea Manor provides Standard, Superior and Dementia care accommodation. Each of the 70 rooms at Chelsea Manor have views of the private courtyards or boundary gardens and some feature private access to a courtyard.
To ensure the highest possible quality care, our Residence Manager oversees a team of dedicated and qualified care professionals, including a Clinical Care Coordinator, nurses and personal carers.
Our care model is flexible and responsive to individual care needs even as they change, including the provision of specialised nursing care and palliative care if needed. This person-centred approach is designed to support each resident to maintain their dignity and independence wherever possible.
We are committed to consistency and quality of care and implemented an initiative in 2016 to reduce (and ultimately cease) use of agency staff in our residences. This means our nurses and carers are regular staff who know the residents and are familiar with their needs and preferences.
We also work with a range of partners on programs to support social, physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual wellbeing to ensure the best overall health outcomes for each resident.
BlueCross Chelsea Manor's diverse leisure and lifestyle program is packed with activities to energize or engage you and includes mystery bus trips, live entertainment and tai chi.
The billiards room is a great space to play a friendly game with friends, and the activity centre offers plenty of opportunities to show your creative flair and keep your mind active with arts and crafts programs, word games and other pastimes.
BlueCross Chelsea Manor has a dedicated library plus a computer centre making it even easier for you to stay connected with family and friends.
At BlueCross Chelsea Manor, we offer a variety of services for your wellbeing. Some of these include homemade and nutritionally-balanced meals freshly prepared by our on-site chef, and pampering treatments in our hair and beauty salon.
When you want to slow down, our coffee shop, Café de Nick, is open five days a week and offers freshly brewed coffee and treats.
The multi-faith chapel also provides a space for quiet reflection as well as weekly church services. It shares space with the theatrette and becomes the venue for movie nights at other times.
BlueCross residences provide a high level of hotel services, with laundry, gardening, housekeeping, cleaning and maintenance all included.
