Evanston Park

Eldercare Evanston Park is a state-of-the-art aged care home built in 2008 with modern resident rooms and spacious communal areas that support a range of social activities.

Overview

All rooms at Evanston Park are single rooms with ensuites, and some have kitchenettes. Some rooms are located in the support unit which provides specialised assistance to residents living with dementia. Expansive established gardens and two large courtyards offer peaceful spaces to enjoy time outdoors.

Our chef prepares all food on-site daily with two courses served for lunch and three courses for dinner each day. Residents can also celebrate special events with their family and friends on-site with in-house catering available at additional cost. There are private spaces that can be reserved for these occasions.

There is a varied social program that residents can choose to participate in including crafts, games and physical activities. Our physiotherapist supervises the on-site gym which features specially designed equipment for building strength, increasing fitness and improving or maintaining mobility. A dentist, optometrist and audiologist visit periodically and local medical specialists can visit upon request.

Residents can get their hair done at the on-site hairdressing salon with services offered weekly at an additional cost.

There are 100 single rooms at Evanston Park.
