From Monday 9 November you will not be required to book your visits and we look forward to welcoming children under the age of 16 years. We do ask that visits are from only one household per day. Upon entry you will need to complete a temperature check and declaration form, use hand sanitiser and, wear a mask and shield. Visits must still be in your loved one’s room or outside as directed.
Please contact your Residential Services Manager for further information or to discuss your circumstances.
Welcome to Providence
Your new home is in the charming countryside of Bacchus Marsh, only 50 minutes away from Melbourne’s CBD.
Having undergone a recent two storey expansion, Providence is now a 99-bed residence with a memory support unit set to open shortly.
Enjoy a spacious, single room with private ensuite and lovely natural light. As you walk through the residence, you’ll find a series of cosy lounge and sitting areas, lovely garden views including pepper and gum trees and a courtyard that’s perfect on a warm summer’s day.
We also know that everybody loves good quality food and that’s why our chefs prepare and cook meals on-site using fresh and wholesome ingredients.
Providence also offers allied health services, including physiotherapy and podiatry, plus an on-site hairdressing salon.
Social events and activities
Our team of staff and volunteers are passionate about developing fun and interesting activities. You’ll have the opportunity to join regular favourites including:
- Indoor carpet bowls / mini golf / ten pin bowling
- Happy Hour
- Card games
And that’s just to name a few! We also have an art and crafts group, “knit and natter” group and walking group. Joining in is completely up to you but it’s a great opportunity to get involved and have some fun.
Pastoral Care is a model of spiritual and emotional support offered to individuals to support them not only in times of pain or hardship, but also during times of celebration, happiness and peace. From the moment you arrive, they’ll be there to support you with:
- Personal one-on-one visits
- Prayer groups
- Denominational services and Mass
Our Pastoral Care team also organise a range of activities including art appreciation groups, sessions that connect you with nature, reminiscence activities that help prompt your memory and talking groups where you’re invited to share all your thoughts and memories.
Not sure if Providence is for you? Why not try a short respite stay? Depending on room availability, you’re welcome to join us for a minimum two-week stay. It’s a great way to ease into aged care, and many of our residents have decided to live with us permanently afterwards.
Your new room is generously sized allowing you to live more easily and comfortably.
