At Livingstone Gardens, caring for you is our priority. Our qualified team of nurses and personal care attendants provide 24 hour care. Our staff are trained to care for older people; BlueCross is dedicated to best practice, ensuring personalised care for each and every resident. We will assess your care needs and develop a holistic care plan that evolves as your needs change.
At Livingstone Gardens we have a choice of rooms all with private ensuites; some are suitable for couples, several with sliding doors for those who may wish to remain in close contact with their partner. There are also apartment-style suites with separate living room and bedroom. Our communal living areas feature spectacular views over the neighbouring suburbs or out to the Dandenong Ranges.
The rooms are offered fully furnished, or feel free to bring much loved pieces from home. All rooms have individually controlled air-conditioning and hydronic heating.
Leisure and Lifestyle
Our seven day leisure and lifestyle program offers a range of choices. Activities based on resident favourites will form part of the program, Tai Chi, art classes, walking clubs, introduction to social media and discussion groups are many of the planned activities. Located in walking distance to the Vermont South Library & Community House as well as neighbourhood shopping, ensures residents have access to a range of activities within or outside the residence.
At BlueCross Livingstone Gardens we have included features that will appeal to residents, and their families and friends. Our ground floor café is a wonderful place for residents to meet with family and friends. Enjoy a coffee by the fireplace in the cooler months, or an iced tea on the alfresco terrace.
Dining is an important part of life and our in-house catering provides a seasonal nutritious menu that can be enjoyed in one of our many light filled dining rooms. For special events we have a private dining room that seats 12 people, let BlueCross cater for your next birthday or anniversary.
Our library has a range of titles, fiction and non-fiction, and is a quiet space to surf the internet or enjoy the daily newspaper. Enjoy your favourite movie on the big screen in our dedicated, surround sound cinema.
For the gentlemen, our Men’s Shed equipped with tools and materials, opens onto the terrace for residents wanting to continue, or start, a favourite hobby.
And for the ladies the BlueCross Livingstone Gardens salon will provide hairdressing & beauty treatments, along with therapeutic or relaxing therapies to be enjoyed in our Wellness room.
