Eldercare Cottage Grove was built in 1995. In 2005, the facility was renovated and a new Memory Support Unit was built.
Environment & Services
Cottage Grove features spacious single rooms, with their own air conditioning units and en suites. There are also two double suites for couples.
The homely atmosphere of Cottage Grove is enhanced by its manicured gardens and courtyards. Families are able to use our Bundalong activity room for private functions such as birthdays,
and there are numerous private lounge areas, as well as a fenced garden and barbeques for extended families to enjoy when they visit.
Our cottage-style accommodation is set within a quiet and leafy residential setting, and is easily accessible by car or bus. The residents have use of an onsite Hairdresser, computer/internet kiosk and cafeteria.
We have a GP Reach office located on site, which provides supplementary services when the visiting doctors are unavailable. There are two doctor’s surgeries next door, and other health professionals visit regularly including Dentists, Speech Pathologists, Physiotherapists, Podiatrists and Dietitians. Cottage Grove also has a unique complex health team for pain management.
A full time Chaplain is available to support residents and families, emotionally and spiritually. Our lifestyle program is extensive, and even offers activities on the weekend.
Community & Social Networks
Conveniently co-located with The Vines Uniting Church, our facility is supported by the congregation through volunteering. Interested residents are able to attend the Sunday service at The Vines and maintain their faith.
There are three newly built Eldercare retirement living villas located to the rear of the site, accessible by ramp.
The local council provides a mobile library service, including large print books.
Eldercare Cottage Grove enjoys an intergenerational relationship with local primary schools and high schools. Children visit to sing recitals, participate in activities and events, complete special projects such as life histories, or even volunteer their time.
