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.
At BlueCross Box Hill, you will be able to enjoy a wide range of social and physical activities at your own pace. Our leisure and lifestyle team will meet with each resident to learn about their interests and then incorporate these into the daily activity calendar.
Activities can include art classes, exercise, gardening, craft group, bingo or even a bus outing to visit a nearby attraction. Whatever your passion may be, our bustling social schedule will always have something interesting and suitable for you.
Residents also enjoy access to the cinema, library, café and landscaped gardens, giving you choice to spend your time the way you want.
Satisfy your taste buds with our nutritious and delicious food, prepared on site daily by our chef from the freshest ingredients. Indulge in our weekly specials, and have your food cooked to your liking at our specialised kitchen while you watch. Rotational seasonal menu is also available to cater to many tastes and cultural needs. Choose to eat in our beautifully appointed dining rooms with other residents, or dine in our private dining room - the choice is yours.
Enjoy the many allied health services being offered such as physiotherapy, podiatry, audiology, speech pathology and more. And if you are looking for some pampering, our hairdressing and beauty salon is available on site to leave you glowing from head to toe.
