Situated in the semi rural suburb of St Leonards this gracious facility provides exceptional care for residents. Mount Esk offers an attractive, sunny position with pleasant semi-rural vistas, close to shops and transport and has a range of accommodation, all with ensuite facilities.
Couples with differing care needs can be accommodated on the one site. Ageing in place means that security of tenure at the same facility is assured even when care needs change.
The values and ethos of Mount Esk are traditional, reflecting a gentle, caring approach for those who can no longer live in their own home. There is a variety of accommodation to meet your preferred needs with spacious lounge and dining areas as well as a large function area known for varied activities organised by dedicated Leisure and Lifestyle Staff.
Visiting podiatrists and physiotherapists are available and the regular hairdresser is a valued part of the team.
There is quiet and solace in the peaceful chapel with its beautiful stained glass windows. Regular Church services are held for several denominations and the support of a Pastoral Carer is readily to hand.
There is a close involvement with the adjacent Larmenier Catholic school through organised visits and concerts as well as visits at special times of the year.
Personal attention is a feature of this unique, traditional aged care facility.
Mount Esk has operated since July 2002 under the stewardship of Southern Cross Care (Tas) Inc and was formally operated by the Sisters of Nazareth. Substantial refurbishments were undertaken in 2015 upgrading all rooms to single ensuited facilities and enhancements to the living and dining areas. Two new spacious lifts have been installed providing easy access for all who visit Mount Esk.
