Quality care, character and kinship in the heart of the community
BlueCross Autumdale is an intimate residence in Cheltenam, just a short distance from local RSL and bowls clubs, plus the shops and bargains at DFO Moorabbin and Westfield Southland.
With 45 beds, BlueCross Autumdale provides low level care accommodation in a setting with all the charm and character of an English country cottage. The quality of care our residents enjoy is our priority, at Autumdale our highly trained staff are attentive to your individual and changing needs.
We invite you to come and share in the warmth, kinship and charm that is Autumdale.
BlueCross Autumdale has recently been refurbished with brand new carpets and creamy tones through most of its sun-dappled rooms.
BlueCross Autumdale has a spacious dining room and large main lounge, which feature chandeliers, Tudor style window panes and a warming fireplace. This inviting and comfortable space is at the heart of Autumdale.
The residence also comprises a reading and games area and non-denominational chapel, a smaller sitting room. Automatic doors open out to the fountain, BBQ, roses, lavender bushes and box hedges of the sunny central courtyard garden that is flanked by the two residential wings.
BlueCross Autumdale provides accommodation with 45 standard rooms. Every room has a view of either the central courtyard or secure perimeter garden. With Autumdale’s easy and intimate floor plan, the peaceful rooms are all set close to the common areas.
At BlueCross Autumdale we understand that a happy home is also a place in which its occupants enjoy good quality of life as well as good quality care.
Our well developed leisure and lifestyle program is designed to engage residents and is packed with activities such as gardening, walking, physiotherapy, knitting, sing-a-longs and outings.
Residents who like to remain physically and mentally active will find an air hockey table, a bookcase brimming with games and books and a piano on which to practise favourite tunes.
For those people who love a good cappuccino, there are two self-serve coffee machines in the dining room. In the courtyard outside, two covered pergolas are the ideal spots to have a coffee with fellow residents, read or enjoy time with family.
