Modern living in a friendly and comfortable setting
Silverwood is located adjacent to the beautiful Westerfolds Parkland and Yarra, minutes from the green gateway of Eltham or the busy hub of Doncaster. A modern, air conditioned, multi-level building, Silverwood offers a comfortable and friendly environment that fosters independence, dignity and respect.
Offering 61 low level care places, Silverwood is not just about the four walls but the people and friendships within them. Shared areas are places where people can enjoy socialising in well appointed surroundings and outside there are beautiful shaded areas for relaxing or having a cup of tea with your family and friends.
Our well trained and attentive care and services staff are committed to ensuring you get the most out of every day in a warm, caring and safe environment, and invite you to come and experience it.
BlueCross Silverwood is finished in classic, relaxed décor and is a blend of shared spaces across three levels wrapped around a large courtyard.
Features include a huge dining room and comfortable common lounge with gas fireplace, flat screen television and soothing tropical aquarium. The lounge flows out to the landscaped courtyard at the heart of the residence. There are also two smaller lounges for residents to enjoy quieter moments.
There is a billiards table, a hair salon, self-serve kitchenette, a TV and library room and a cosy lounge area with games console.
The second floor houses a sunny conservatory used for activities and a large outdoor terrace, which yields sweeping views of the surrounding area.
BlueCross Silverwood has 61 large, tastefully decorated Standard private rooms, each with its own ensuite. All rooms are complete with television and telephone connections, heating and ceiling fans. Rooms are very generous and may overlook the surrounding urban scapes, landscaped central courtyard, or have views of the secure perimeter garden.
BlueCross Silverwood offers a diverse range of leisure and lifestyle activities each week. Weekly bus trips to local shopping precincts and places of interest along with monthly night time outings to dine locally ensure there is ample opportunity to get out and about.
There are also plenty of activities available within the residence; residents can play billiards, table tennis and a Nintendo Wii, or participate in some outdoor exercise or a game of cards with fellow residents.
For the animal lovers, Dusty, the visiting dog is always happy to receive a pat and the resident budgies, Bubble and Squeak, can entertain.
You’ll also find a number of additional services available at BlueCross Silverwood that make living here so convenient. Hairdressing, podiatry, physiotherapy and optometry are services that are available to help keep residents feeling well and feeling good.
We have a Chef who prepares a menu of delicious, nutritious meals using fresh produce every day. These meals are served in our dining room, and are designed to meet any dietary or cultural preference – but most of all, we like to prepare meals that people will enjoy.
