Estia Health Strathalbyn reflects a community spirit that can only be found in a country town. Our residents enjoy a positive lifestyle in a welcoming and supportive environment.
Set alongside the banks of the picturesque Angas River, our home is located in beautiful country surroundings just a short distance from town. The single-level residence, with its contemporary décor and tasteful furnishings, offers a warm home-like ambience that’s both stylish and comfortable.
Estia Strathalbyn features a generous range of amenities, activities and communal areas that offer many opportunities to build new friendships. Open plan living and dining rooms are light-filled spaces, providing welcoming venues for visiting entertainers. A library area offers a generous collection of books and audio books, with monthly visits from the local library adding to these resources. Computer facilities with wi-fi are also available, as are local daily newspapers. Pampering opportunities in our salon are popular, with a dedicated hairdresser visiting weekly. There is an on-site bus for outings that take our residents further afield.
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, many of them bilingual, 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.
Landscaped pergolas, outdoor furnishings and shaded courtyards provide opportunities for enjoying friendships or relaxing. Our memory support area also offers a secure sensory garden for residents to enjoy the outdoors in safety. A large communal living and dining area features comfortable modern furnishings, a flat screen television with Foxtel, gas fireplace, piano and vast panorama windows overlooking the garden surrounds and the Angas River. Family and friends are warmly welcome to join residents in our smaller lounge area, sun room or private function room for more intimate visits or celebrations.
