Common areas

As is expected of such a long-established, community based facility you will feel as though you are entering a calm and welcoming home-like environment. Residents are provided with large, open lounge areas, comfortably furnished with individual recliner chairs and couches, and large TV (LCD) screens for ease of viewing, or may escape into quieter sitting rooms. Fresh, daily-made meals are served in the large open dining areas or alternatively there is a private dining room for residents and family, designed to make you feel relaxed and at home.

Sweeping gardens with uninterrupted views to the Grampians provide space to stroll and relax within private and secure outdoor areas that incorporate courtyards, established trees, manicured gardens and raised garden beds, and peaceful retreats maintained by community volunteers. All of this and yet only a short walk into the centre of town, where an array of shops and local businesses boast services for your convenience.

In addition to the creature comforts provided at the Penshurst Nursing Home is entirely staffed by Registered Nurses and event programs are organized 5 days a week by qualified planners to ensure activities are not only appropriately structured but according to individual needs.
