BlueCross The Boulevard in Mill Park offers permanent and respite care (short term accommodation in a nursing home) to 90 residents, including those with dementia specific care needs.
The Boulevard is a purpose-built residence that provides residents with an engaging leisure and lifestyle program of activities and therapies. This is combined with our highly-trained personal carers who are attentive to your needs as you age in place, to ensure your optimal wellbeing and health.
We invite you to come and experience The Boulevard's high standards and our modern, welcoming home.
Quality aged care and social lifestyle in the heart of Mill Park
FeaturesBlueCross The Boulevard is set out in four wings, Tivoli, Walkers, Lorikeet and Rivergum, each containing their own light-filled communal lounges with cosy armchairs and sofas and dining area.
There is also a private dining room, quiet sitting rooms with self-service kitchenettes, an expansive multi-purpose room and music room, plus a Men's Shed and a Ladies Parlour.
Adding to the amenities in this sought after residence is a day spa, hair salon, library, chapel, gas fireplaces and central climate control. The multi-sensory room in Tivoli Wing even provides a soothing space for residents living with dementia.
BlueCross The Boulevard has four private courtyards with landscaped gardens, benches, lavender plants and box hedges. There is also a secure outdoor terrace with garden beds and decked areas in the secure Tivoli Wing, from which to take in the fresh air.
BlueCross The Boulevard provides 90 rooms with Standard, Standard Twin Share and Superior accommodation. All rooms are tastefully decorated and come equipped with television and telephone connections, hydronic heating and ceiling fans.
Residents are encouraged to bring their own pieces to decorate their rooms and make them their own. Rooms may have views of the courtyards, neighbouring parkland or the residence's boundary garden.
Descriptions of the three room types and the associated costs are detailed on the link below.
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.
LifestyleThe team at BlueCross The Boulevard encourages independence and a strong sense of wellbeing in all residents, and welcome family and friends to become a regular part of life at the residence.
You'll enjoy outings on our residence bus, group exercises and movie matinees and having a gentle play with resident cats, Max and Alley.
The Boulevard's unique Ladies' Parlour has a sewing machine, craft table, and a dressmaker's dummy and is sure to inspire your sewing, knitting and other handicrafts. For the men, we have a Men's Shed, which is the perfect place to swap ideas, share a beer and work on projects.
Our many communal spaces allow residents to enjoy morning or afternoon tea while watching your favourite television shows with friends or in some areas, participate in activities like pool, table tennis, or bingo.
BlueCross The Boulevard has a dedicated physiotherapy room, while in the dementia specific wing, the Tivoli Arcade, is a music room in which you'll enjoy live music by a visiting pianist, every week.
BlueCross The Boulevard has a number of dining rooms in which fresh, homemade and nutritious meals are served daily. There is also a beautifully appointed private dining room. This room is ideal for special celebrations with family members, and you'll enjoy the manager's monthly lunches to celebrate birthdays and milestones with your fellow residents. On Fridays, happy hour drinks are available at the bar.
BlueCross The Boulevard also has a Chapel for quiet reflection, while church services are held twice a week.
The hair salon is open twice a week, and you can relax with manicures, aromatherapy and other treatments in The Boulevard's dedicated day spa. Plus we have visiting services such as podiatry and physiotherapy.
BlueCross residences provide a high level of hotel services, with laundry, gardening, housekeeping, cleaning and maintenance all included.
