We know that the move to aged care homes can be an emotional and sometimes difficult change in a person’s life, and that older people deserve the very best in support when they need it most.
Our fully accredited facility provides private, comfortable rooms in a friendly, homely environment.
When welcoming a new resident, we carry out on-going comprehensive assessments so we can provide a tailored plan to meet specific needs in consultation with the resident and their family.
There is a broad range of activities on offer. All meals are prepared by trained staff in our onsite kitchen.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AGED CARE AND ASSISTED LIVING?
For older Australians who can no longer live independently, aged care centres in Melbourne (like OCAV) provide exceptional support and assistance. This is also an ideal option if you or a loved one can no longer stay alone in their own home. From residential through to home care services – there are a number of options available within this category.
In Australia, aged care homes allow for a number of government-funded options. Depending on the level of support you or your loved ones require, we recommend getting in touch with our team to find out what options are available to you.
We offer respite, dementia-specific, and high-level care for our Melbourne residents, delivering individualised support to each resident.
Our professional nurses and other highly qualified staff provide premium support including:
- 24-hour call system and staff
- Continence management
- Hearing, vision and dental services
- Medication management
- Mobility assistance
- Nursing services
- Palliative support
- Personal support, bathing and dressing
- Visiting GP
- Wound management

Volunteering is important to Deb, enabling her to contribute in the aged care sector. “I love it when the residents get downright cheeky. I love it when we get a bit too loud with laughing."
