Care without compromise at The Bellevue.

Oceania

Nestled on leafy Windermere Road, you’ll discover a friendly community at The Bellevue. Marie has experienced it first-hand, telling us, “this is the place I’ve been able to make friends.”

Reflecting on when she first moved to the leafy village, Marie says, “Sarah (Guest Service Manager) got to know me in the first week. I had dinner with her.” Adding with a smile, “The chef here is absolutely marvelous.”

But Marie’s social life isn’t limited to delicious dinner dates; there’s always something happening at The Bellevue. “Sarah gets to know the residents and what they want to do. Everyone is different and has different needs. She’ll arrange things for what we want to do.”

Our Care Suites not only offer both Rest Home and Hospital care but feel like home too, with a living area, kitchenette and ensuite. And Marie couldn’t be happier. “I love my room. I have a little outside patio area. I can boil the jug and make myself a cup of tea and I can entertain friends. I have miles of photos up. I like having lots of photos around me.”

At The Bellevue, Marie has found that feeling many of us are searching for, “I wake up every morning and feel good.”
