Facility features

Ashleigh House benefited from a series of refurbishments and extensions in 2016, giving our residents access to fantastic lifestyle features.  A Department of Health grant in 2019/20 enabled further renovations to take place in resident rest area, lounge & dining rooms, hairdressing room and resident rooms.  Grant funds also enabled five new memory support unit rooms to be added, they were completed in August 2020.

Our Library offers IT facilities, allowing residents to access the Internet and social media, helping them to stay in touch with the people they care about.  We also have six I-pads for residents to use to keep in touch with family and friends.

For those who love to read, the  Library wing also includes a new audio book station with recliner chairs for easy listening and hours of pleasure.

A special care room makes the transition easier for residents who transfer to the facility from the hospital and the doctors consulting room enables residents to receive specialist care on site.

Residents are free to move from the facility at any time, to re-locate to another care environment or return home to live with family.

A resident’s security of tenure is valid from the time of admission until the time of their departure.

Two permanent short-stay respite beds are also built into the facility. Bookings for this service can be made by contacting reception on 03 5144 4484.

Ashleigh House is a smoke-free site.

Room Selection

Every effort is made to ensure residents move into the most appropriate room for their needs, based on the level of care they require.

As circumstances change, it may be necessary to move a resident from one room to another for medical or heightened care needs. Any move is made in consultation with the resident and their family prior to the move.
