High quality aged care with a genuine community feel
BlueCross Glengowrie is perched on two quiet acres in suburban Glenroy close to local amenities, the Glenroy RSL club and a plethora of shopping centres.
A modern residence, Glengowrie provides 90 places for people with low level dementia care needs. Our warm and inviting décor and centrally controlled climate infuse it with a community ambience, while the names of its common areas – Wattle, Banksia, Melaleuca, Acacia and Silvergum – evoke the beauty of the Australian bush.
Our registered nurses, personal care attendants and residential services staff are well trained and attentive to your individual and changing needs.
We invite you to come and be a part of our safe, caring and close-knit community at Glengowrie.
BlueCross Glengowrie features several open plan lounges, dining rooms, and residential wings separated by landscaped gardens and courtyards.
You don’t have to venture far to enjoy your comforts at Glengowrie, with a number of intimate sitting rooms and self service kitchenettes ideal for entertaining visitors or simply indulging in the views of the charming courtyards beyond.
The main lounge is a hive of activity, with a billiards table, flat screen television and piano for live music shows. For quieter moments, residents can settle in by the cosy gas log fireplace, with a book from the well stocked library.
BlueCross Glengowrie’s dementia specific wing has its own dining room and sitting areas, as well as a space where residents enjoy creating sensory art. A serene courtyard outside this wing also provides a large and secure area to enjoy walks and take in the natural beauty of the gardens.
BlueCross Glengowrie offers 90 rooms with Standard, Superior and Deluxe accommodation. Rooms may have views out to the surrounding streetscapes, private courtyards or landscaped gardens.

If quiet reflection is what you’re after, Glengowrie’s sun-dappled outdoor spaces have seats to relax in and soak in the sunshine, and there is a barbecue for outdoor cooking. Gardeners will enjoy pottering with the silverbeet and other edible plants in the raised vegetable garden.
