Cottage Grove

There are beautifully landscaped gardens around Cottage Grove as well as a range of indoor communal spaces, both intimate and large, in which residents can enjoy the varied social activities, time alone or meeting with family and friends.

Overview

Residents enjoy many landscaped gardens around Cottage Grove, which include outdoor seating and a gazebo area, ideal for peaceful time alone or for socialising with friends and family. Large communal gathering spaces and several lounge and sitting areas overlooking the gardens can also be found across the site. A secure garden and courtyard, as part of the support unit, can be enjoyed by residents living with dementia and their families.

Our chef prepares all food on-site daily with two courses served for lunch and three courses for dinner each day.

Health professionals, including a podiatrist, speech pathologist and dietitian, visit regularly. Our physiotherapist supervises the on-site gym which features specially designed equipment for building strength, increasing fitness and improving or maintaining mobility. There is also a varied social program that residents can choose to participate in including crafts, games and physical activities.

Cottage Grove’s dedicated hairdresser also provides services to residents in the on-site salon.
