Living at Argyle Court
Nestled in the bayside suburb of Chelsea just moments from Bicentennial Park is our boutique 45-bed, award winning, ageing-in-place home, Argyle Court. A friendly, homely establishment where residents, staff and visitors mingle, form friendships and enjoy close ties with the local community. There are private, secure outdoor areas where residents can sit and relax, play putt-putt golf, garden, watch children play in the child friendly play area or take a walk on the exercise path that winds around the building.
Argyle Court features Home2Home, Lifeview's small house model of care. Home2Home is a relationship-based model, where multi-skilled staff (housemates), work with the same group of residents, all the time. Home2Home enables staff to spend more meaningful time within their household, creating better continuity of care and building on already established relationships. Home2Home also enables residents to remain as independent as they wish, rise when they like, eat meals a time that suits them and partake in activities of their choosing.
All Lifeview homes are Rainbow Tick accredited and pet friendly with a specialty Memory Support Program onsite featuring daily Engage Groups, The Virtual Forest and the A Better Visit app for those living with dementia.
Rooms are light and spacious and residents are encouraged to add personal touches with mementos, photos or furnishings. Argyle Court’s rooms feature an en suite bathroom, built in wardrobes with a lockable cupboard, flat screen tv with Foxtel, ceiling fan and hydronic heating. There is a Registered Nurse on call around the clock, a fun loving and approachable manager, dedicated team of housemates and an energetic social support team to enable resident needs.
Argyle Court has an informal, intimate atmosphere where families are very involved with day-to-day life. We promote interaction, friendship and laughter whilst providing a comfortable lifestyle. Respite stays are welcome.

Principles. Lifeview staff attend regular training, conferences and seminars to keep abreast of industry developments, and advances in aged care.

Each day starts with a continental breakfast buffet served over a two-hour period, so residents can rise at their leisure.
Services including physiotherapy, dental, podiatry, hairdressing, beauty, dietetics, a choice of doctors and ministers of religion - all visit residents in the comfort of their home. Newspapers and magazines are also delivered daily to the home.
