Located in the town centre of Whittlesea, just north of Melbourne, Sunlight has all the charm of a rural setting, with the added benefit of easy access to local shops and services. Sunlight offers you quality accommodation, dining & relaxation options plus accredited standards of healthcare & wellbeing - giving peace of mind to you and your family.
Sunlight is currently undertaking a major redevelopment which is due to be completed in early 2021. The extension to the rear of our building will include 90 additional rooms with private ensuites, a purpose-built dementia unit, new lounge and dining areas and expansive new courtyards and outdoor entertaining areas.
Conveniently co-located within Sunlight, the TLC Primary Care medical centre is now open and welcoming new patients. The general practitioners, specialists and allied health professionals at TLC Primary Care provide our residents with the timely medical care they need. Our medical centre is also open to the public so you don’t have to be a resident to make an appointment.
Sunlight services also include a fully equipped cafe where residents can relax and entertain their guests, a gymnasium & hydrotherapy pool offering tailored fitness programs under the supervision of our in-house physiotherapy team and a virtual reality cinema where residents can immerse themselves in this new technology.
At Sunlight we take pride in offering our residents a lifestyle that is supportive of their care requirements whilst promoting independence and dignity. In conjunction with you, our professional staff will develop a care plan specifically tailored to your care needs and personal preferences.
We actively encourage our residents to participate in our TLC Wellbeing program of social activities and outings that are designed to keep you actively engaged in your local community. If you have hobbies or interests that you would like to pursue, our staff will help you to continue with those activities at your new home.
Registered nurses are on duty at Sunlight 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our registered nurses are supported by enrolled nurses and personal care staff; all of whom are qualified at a minimum Certificate 3 level. Sunlight also offers our residents an on-site physiotherapist who will work with you to develop a program of appropriate physical activities that will assist you to maintain your strength, balance and agility.
In our specially designed memory support environment our highly trained team applies an innovative approach to meeting the needs of residents.
Sunlight can also offer respite care as an alternative to permanent aged care.
