One big family: Fendalton Retirement Village


It’s been something of a hidden secret in Fendalton, but the residents of Fendalton Retirement Village love its boutique size, its garden surroundings and its truly family atmosphere. The staff of the village are especially attentive to those residents who require a little more individual care.

There are different levels of care at Fendalton for people who no longer wish to cook for themselves, or who may need assistance with showering and other personal routines. The 24 hour rest home offering permanent, respite and day care, comprises 35 larger than standard single rooms, each with ensuite bathroom, private phone and access to television.

Quality and continuity of care for all rest home residents is assured by a registered nurse and trained health care assistants. Should someone require hospital level care, residents at Fendalton have priority to Elmswood Hospital. There are also 12 larger rest home level studio care suites, each with ensuite bathroom, kitchenette and sufficient room for a dining table should residents like to start their day with a leisurely breakfast in their room. Lunch and dinner are served in a private dining area for 12 people. Several studio care suites step out into the gardens.

There’s fun to be had at Fendalton with a large communal lounge where there is plenty of entertainment and activities taking place, like the recent Mad Hatter’s Tea party, which was simply hilarious and enjoyed by everyone involved.
