When BlueCross Malvern East opens in late 2019, it will provide quality aged care to 103 people in a space designed to feel just like home.
The unique features of the existing home will be thoughtfully incorporated into the newly designed home, to achieve a residence that enhances the lives of older people. BlueCross Malvern East will also have the latest advances in aged care technology, as well as features reminiscent of home.
Respecting the history of the existing home was an important consideration when decommissioning BlueCross Cresthaven. That’s why we’ve carefully retained its unique features, which include ornate led lighting, clay gargoyles, memorabilia and more.
Located in the middle of tranquil Malvern East, this new residence will be close to parks and shops; encouraging residents to remain connected with their community and lead active lifestyles. Iconic Chadstone shopping centre and Glenferrie Road are just a short trip away.
Key features of the home will include:
•Led lighting and terracotta gargoyles from the existing home (formerly known as BlueCross Cresthaven)
BlueCross Malvern East will be built to support the changing needs of older people and will be a true ageing in place residence. The building itself will be 3 storeys, plus a large basement for services with a carpark.
The residence will also feature a purpose-built memory support environment, with natural light and garden access, as well as modifications to enhance the lives of people living with dementia.
