Meilene Residential Aged Care – Anglicare Southern Queensland
Meilene, meaning ‘welcome’, occupies the site of the original homestead, its namesake. The subtropical regional city of Bundaberg on the Burnett River is around four hours north of Brisbane. A beautiful rose garden greets you at the front gate. The extensive gardens are landscaped with al fresco areas set aside for recreation and relaxation. Meilene is located close to public transport routes.
Meilene is a fully accredited residential aged care service.
The Meilene community
Four houses, each home to 10 – 16 residents, have their own comfortable lounge and sitting area, as well as a dining room and a kitchen. You will have your own single room and 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 variety of health professionals regularly visit, including a physiotherapist, podiatrist, dentist, audiologist, speech therapist and dietician. A hairdresser is onsite weekly and available by appointment.
Maintaining the leisure and lifestyle interests of residents is all part of the program. We take a collaborative approach, inviting feedback and discussions on what types of activities you prefer.
The community benefits from having an onsite laundry and full commercial kitchen, providing freshly prepared meals served in the dining areas, catering for special dietary needs and meals to mark special occasions or cultural events.
