Estia Health Bendigo Vic (formerly known as Victoria Height Residential Care) is a family-friendly residence that excels in every aspect of care, comfort and ambience. Purpose-built in 2005, it features large windows that capture natural light to create a sense of spaciousness throughout.
Close to local hospitals, RSL, bowls club and golf course, the home is near public transport and a short drive from the Bendigo CBD.
Attentive and friendly staff, along with an emphasis on community connections and quality care, is what makes this a warm and welcoming place to be.
Elegance and contemporary style describe the internal décor at Estia Health Bendigo Vic (formerly known as Victoria Height Residential Care), which is furnished with maximum comfort and function in mind. This style is mirrored in the immaculately landscaped gardens and courtyards that surround the living spaces.
A popular café, opened daily, provides a welcoming spot for our residents and their visitors to mingle, relax and enjoy occasional musical performances. Next to the café is a library area, which features a broad collection of books to browse and enjoy.
For those who are musically inclined, an organ and two pianos are at hand. Tea and coffee are provided for everyone in the cosy front meeting room, and twice-weekly bus trips ensure that our residents enjoy the attractions that the local area has to offer.
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 as required. 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.
Common area description
Three communal open-plan dining and lounge areas offer plenty of comfortable seating and provide room for watching television and movies, or just spending time with friends. Views out onto the landscaped courtyards add to the ambience of two of these lounges, with the third offering beautiful city skyline and cathedral views from the upper floor.
Three smaller, more intimate dining areas give our residents the opportunity to build friendships and bond with their companions in a home-like atmosphere.
Barbecue areas in two courtyards offer modern outdoor seating and shade, presenting a welcoming environment for entertaining family and friends. Smaller secure courtyards, found throughout the home, allow our residents to safely enjoy the tranquil atmosphere of the landscaped gardens, complete with flower beds, water features and raised veggie patches.
