Living at The Willows
Situated in a quiet and peaceful area of Wheelers Hill, The Willows is a warm, inviting 60 bed home offering ageing in place care. Local attractions include Jells Park, Monash Library, Monash Art Gallery and a nearby shopping centre. Wheelers Hill is known for its trees and beautiful parklands that make up 30% of this leafy area. Directly across the road from The Willows is the Monash Gallery perfect for an afternoon stroll around the lake, feeding the ducks or taking a tour of the Gallery. Other local amenities feature The Wheelers Hotel, Mulgrave Country Club, supermarket and cafés.
The Willows has plenty of bright, sunny living areas where residents can relax, read from a selection of books from the onsite library or enjoy a game of darts or billiards. We also have raised garden beds where residents can indulge their green fingers by growing plants and herbs.
Rooms are light and spacious and residents are encouraged to add personal touches with mementos, photos or furnishings. The Willows rooms are comfortable featuring ensuite bathroom, built in wardrobes with a lockable cupboard, ceiling fan and hydronic heating. Our registered nurse is on call around the clock. We have an approachable manager, dedicated team of personal carers and energetic social support staff to care for residents needs.
The Willows 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 for the residents. Respite stays are welcome.
Live life to the fullest.
Our Wheelers Hill residence has a friendly, homely vibe with plenty of activities on offer through Lifeview’s Horizon Happenings program. Residents enjoy daily activities such as golf, bowls, billiards, darts, bocce, ten pin, skittles, bingo, card games, painting, Tai Chi and yoga to name a few. There are also enthusiastic knitting and quilting groups, walking groups and regular outings to churches and local shopping centres 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 & entertainment so there is something happening for everyone to help live the possibilities. Themed events like Hawaiian nights and Australia Day are specially celebrated at The Willows. Any reason to have a party, get dressed up, decorate and have fun, we’re living it.
