Glengollan was established by a group of caring Ferntree Gully residents led by Violet Lambert in 1956 as a welcoming, not-for-profit community for senior living.

Nestled amongst the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges is Glengollan. Spanning approximately 12 acres in leafy Ferntree Gully in Melbourne’s outer east, the facility is close to Ferntree Gully and Boronia Railway Stations and has bus stops directly outside the property. It is an approximate 30 minute drive into the CBD via Eastlink.

We are part of a continuing care community, which includes over 130 retirement living units enabling our residents maintain their social connections with community and friends.

It is the perfect place to call home with a full range of accommodation styles to choose from. Glengollan Aged Care Facility is a fully accredited, not for profit, aged care provider caring for up to 90 residents, including specialist care for 15 residents living with dementia. 


To provide excellence in care, wellness, lifestyle and housing options in a supportive & connected, homelike community.

A welcoming community, everyone will feel a sense of belonging.


We embrace change in order to inspire residents to meet their life goals in a supported, sustainable environment.
