Meilene Residential Aged Care
Meilene Residential Aged Care is a single level home, located in the subtropical regional city of Bundaberg on the beautiful Burnett River. Home to 52 residents, Meilene offers an extensive landscaped garden and a range of al fresco areas for residents to join in recreational activities or simply relax. The home is also conveniently located close to public transport.
Our qualified and caring staff assist in fostering a loving community and friendships through activities and a variety of social hubs. Residents can walk the grounds and catch-up with family and friends at the outdoor seating areas. Other social hubs include the dining rooms, library nook and large communal area, where concerts and functions are held.
At Meilene we go to great lengths to make you feel at home and know your life experience is valued and respected.
The Meilene community
Our leisure and lifestyle specialists coordinate a broad variety of activities with the residents. Pre-entry discussions and feedback from our residents helps our staff to identify leisure interests so our program can be tailored to suit preferences.
At Meilene, the home is split into four areas, each home to 10 – 16 residents, which have their own comfortable lounge and sitting area, as well as a dining room and a kitchen. Each room is equipped with its own private ensuite. A number of outdoor areas are available and there’s a large central communal area used for concerts, celebrations and group activities, all of which you are encouraged to join in. But there’s no pressure, you can be as private or as outgoing as you wish.
A fully qualified spiritual and pastoral carer is available to provide spiritual support for both residents and their families.
The food we serve is carefully planned with nutrition, fresh produce, taste and variety in mind. We review menus regularly, run food focus groups and encourage feedback from our residents to understand what they like and if they have any new meal ideas. Our on-site full commercial kitchen provides freshly prepared meals, delivered to our dining areas. Special dietary requirements are catered for including individual and cultural needs.
