Living at Willow Wood
Located in the park filled, rural community of Cranbourne, Willow Wood provides ageing in place care in a warm, welcoming environment. Willow Wood is conveniently located across the road from the local shopping strip and just 10 minutes from Cranbourne Shopping Centre.
At Willow Wood we have landscaped gardens perfect for an afternoon stroll, spacious lounges with tea and coffee making facilities, a piano, a library and many quiet reading nooks throughout the home. We have an onsite salon, billiards table for shooting some pool and a busy roster of activities including happy hour at the bar. The residents here enjoy a high standard of comfort and care and describe Willow Wood as a ‘home away from home’.
Rooms are light and spacious and residents are encouraged to add personal touches with mementos, photos or furnishings. Willow Wood’s 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.
Willow Wood 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 Cranbourne 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 and entertainment so there is something happening for everyone to help live the possibilities. Themed events like Christmas in July and Footy Grand Finals are specially celebrated at Willow Wood. Any reason to have a party, get dressed up, decorate and have fun, we’re living it.

They’re committed to making sure residents live life to the fullest and all it has to offer through a high standard of care and personal service. That’s the Lifeview difference.
