Estia Health Bendigo (formerly known as Lilley Lodge Nursing Home) is a bright, spacious and welcoming residence, located in a quiet street close to shops and all local amenities. The home-like environment is one of comfort, care and security. A variety of peaceful, intimate sitting areas – indoors and outdoors – are complemented by warm, vibrant and friendly living areas. Self-serve tea and coffee facilities are offered in three of the wings, for residents and their visitors to relax and enjoy. And our onsite hairdressing salon, chapel and separate library add to the many facilities and services we provide for our residents. Various courtyard areas provide opportunity for private functions and celebrations, and private visitor parking is available. With a single-level floor plan, access to all areas is easy for residents of all abilities.
Well-balanced and nutritious meals are freshly prepared and cooked on site under the supervision of our professional chefs. A wide variety of health and wellbeing programs, designed by qualified coordinators, are tailored to each resident’s personal needs. Allied health professionals such as physiotherapists and podiatrists are part of our support team, and hairdressers are on site regularly. Pastoral care is also available. Importantly, we offer exceptional levels of care and service. Our staff are on call 24 hours a day to help out where required or just to share a quiet chat. We also offer a secure memory support unit dedicated to ongoing specialised care for those with higher care needs.
Estia Health Bendigo features spacious lounge and activities areas within each of the five wings, where neutral décor and abundant windows ensure light-filled living. Our central lounge area and five smaller lounge/dining areas all feature comfortable couches and armchairs, with large flat-screen televisions. They double as friendly, open-plan meeting places where our residents enjoy a wide range of activities and entertainment. A landscaped central garden, complete with walking paths, native plants, flower beds and water features , provides a perfect location for gardening or for catching up with family and friends, while an enclosed garden provides privacy and safety for those who require it. And for times of quiet contemplation, we also have a non-denominational chapel on site.
