There’s no such thing as ordinary at Glenvale Villas.
Who says that a community that has aged care and support can’t be fun too?
Forget the community centre sing-alongs or games of bingo – this is a new age! At Glenvale Villas we continually strive to reinvent the old to inspire, stimulate and challenge everyone. Our activities programs encourage people to embrace life and have fun by participating.
Inspired by our residents.
Everyone has different interests, from football to reading and painting to keeping fit. All these inspirations inspire us to create new and exciting activities, customised to each person’s individual interests. These special programs are developed in consultation with family members and our own lifestyle team. The effects are incredible, with residents getting passionately involved and suggesting ways to improve the activities themselves.
Whatever your hobby.
We're inspired to help.
Never a dull moment.
A mixture of individual, group and community activities form the basis of our programs. We actively promote new friendships, help improve residents mobility, balance and strength.
Our programs include exercise to music, golf putting, football tipping and even gardening. There’s movie events, aromatherapy, and happy hours. All activities cover social, intellectual, physical, sensory, cultural and spiritual needs and are based on a monthly calendar which is available to all residents.
We also have our Glenvale Villas newsletter, which residents get involved with by contributing stories, images and trivia as a real community project. The newsletter also updates everyone on coming events.
All residents and families are invited to attend our regular residents’ meetings to go through issues, and discuss input and recommendations.
One-on-one companionship is also available on a daily basis by our lifestyle co-ordinator.
Families are welcome to get involved anytime.
Bring your family to Glenvale Villa’s activities and let them share in the fun!
This isn’t a traditional nursing home, so we don’t do traditional things, like visiting hours. We understand that family is very important, so we include them wherever possible, from lunches to outings.
Our activities are designed to different levels to cover everyone’s ability, and it doesn’t matter how many people join in.
Something for everyone.
At Glenvale Villas, we recognise that everyone is an individual, and likes different things. So we go out of our way to create interesting activities, no matter what you like.
The men at Glenvale Villas do things that blokes like to do, such as footy trips, fishing with the boys, beers at the local or even a flutter on the TAB.
The things we’ve always done our whole life. Why should they stop just because we need a little care?
The ladies here also get their own way. Being pampered with a new hairdo, new nails and hand massages, or nice makeup can do wonders to make you feel special again, especially when there’s a chance to gossip and show off at the same time!
