Living at Emerald Glades
Peacefully situated in the lush surrounds of the Dandenong Ranges, Emerald Glades offers a relaxing haven for those seeking ageing in place care. Located within walking distance of the Emerald township with its charming teashops and boutiques, Emerald Glades is a big part of the local community.
Emerald Glades has a warm, cosy and inviting appeal. Residents, staff and visitors take pride in the home and delight in the scenic views. We have a large outdoor area featuring a water fountain and gazebo. Residents can sit and relax over a cuppa whilst admiring the priceless views. There is an on-site hair salon, Men's Shed and several reading nooks throughout the home.
Emerald Glades 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 part-take in activities of their choosing.
Emerald Glades is Rainbow Tick accredited and pet friendly with a Specialist Memory Support Program featuring The Virtual Forest and 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. Emerald Glades' rooms feature an ensuite 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.
Emerald Glades 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.
Live life to the fullest

There are also enthusiastic knitting and quilting groups, a Men's Shed, walking groups and regular outings to local shopping centres and the pub for lunch via our Lifeview Bus. Keeping up community connections and discovering new possibilities is a big focus at Lifeview.
The Monthly Horizon Happenings calendar provides a variety of special events and entertainment so there is something happening for everyone.

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.
