Glengollan Village provides modern, comfortable accommodation for its aged care residents and is staffed by qualified personnel staff, 24 hours a day.
Glengollan Residential Age Care understands that every person is a valued individual with a unique story. This is why we draw on the principles of Montessori care to assist the residents who live within our community. In practice, this means that we support our residents to partner in both shaping and participating in the care they receive. With a particular focus on the maintenance of existing abilities our approach to aged care is both enabling and respectful.
Our residential accommodation is welcoming and generously proportioned. Offering a choice of single, shared and en-suited resident rooms. Life in our community is set against a backdrop of lush gardens and the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, making it the perfect environment for relaxing and enjoying everything Glengollan has to offer.
All meals are cooked fresh in our kitchens, using quality local and ‘best of season’ ingredients. Overseen by a dietician our meals selections offer variety as well as nourishment. It is not unusual to see our residents busy baking biscuits and other treats as part of life at Glengollan.
While we are well known for our permanent residential care, we also offer respite care for people who need a little time away or who may need a bit of extra support following an illness or hospitalisation. Respite is a great way for carers to take a break as well as for the person being cared for to take advantage of our daily activities program and welcoming community.
Across the facility we have many accommodation options to suit people’s individual care needs including respite and dementia care.
There are 86 rooms within the facility clustered into three care-based areas.
- Violet Lambert House
- Margaret Chandler Wing
- Squire Wing
We have comfortable areas to take in the park-like surroundings, as well as social seating for meals and meeting friends and family. All our rooms are private, with the majority having a private ensuite and just a few rooms with a shared ensuite bathroom option.
Our rooms are spacious average 15m2. Our double rooms are popular with couples, as we understand the importance of couples staying together.
