Charm and a sense of place best describe Aegis’ Bassendean Lodge and Aged Care facility, which face each other on opposite sides of Hamilton Street, off historic Old Perth Road in the centre of the community.
At the heart of Bassendean Lodge is an old Uniting Church that was preserved as the dining room and part of the reception area. Glorious natural light floods through the original pointed arched stained glass windows, a theme that was extended to the residential wings by way of high and spacious atriums. Large original gum trees form the nucleus of carefully landscaped gardens at the perimeters.
While the Bassendean Aged Care facility boasts every modern convenience it also has a history: an old nursing home once stood on the site and some of its character was also preserved when the residence was completely rebuilt to Aegis’ premium standards in 2003.
The facilities are within easy walking distance of the original Bassendean township, now a tranquil village with excellent public transport (train and bus), bowling facilities & first class shopping.
