Settling into the south of the island near Hobart, Wellington Views’ acreage is met with sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and Derwent River.
Divided into 11 houses. All rooms have a door that safely leads outside. A secure dementia unit has 34 rooms.
Our team consists of clinical staff and specialists including registered nurses and personal care assistants available on-call, 24-hours a day. A social care team deals with activities and therapy. Team members are passionate, caring and friendly and go above and beyond to build a genuine rapport with residents.
We offer one of the most comprehensive ranges of services including:
- Residential aged care
- Palliative care
- Secure dementia care
- Respite care
With attention to the complete health and wellbeing of our residents, the services we offer combine specialist care with quality of life. Beyond our standard care offerings, further services accommodate specific needs of residents.
Dedicated specialists like physiotherapists, podiatrists and optometrists are available upon request and make frequent visits. Hairdressers come in weekly and are available by appointment.
Food & Diet
Both a full-time and part-time chef ensure that healthy and balanced meal choices are always available and prepared on-site. Meals can also be tailored to fit any dietary requirements. The menu is rotated seasonally. Fresh food arrives throughout the week and is provided locally through the Oscar Hospitality Program.
Activities & Excursions
A lifestyle and leisure team organises activities that happen 7 days a week. This is something that isn’t often found in other aged care facilities. Outings for lunch or just a drive are encouraged, especially if residents’ family would like to take them. Once a month, transportation is hired to accommodate a larger number of people for excursions nearby. On Fridays, there’s Happy Hour with music in the afternoon.
Entering aged care can present a significant lifestyle change for some people and may seem complicated. So before becoming an Wellington Views resident, it is important you and your loved ones make the best decisions regarding your aged care. For prospective residents, we’ve detailed the key steps involved here.
