At Gloucester Residential Care we believe life is about living, and our caring staff endeavours to meet the individual, personal care requirements of all our residents. Our spacious oversized Spa Room with modern fixtures and fittings and an electric lift, offers residents therapeutic relaxation to suit all care requirements. An onsite Hairdresser is available two days a week, giving residents a convenient option to sit back, relax and be pampered in our purpose built contemporary salon. Our laundry and linen service, with door-to-door convenience ensures the personal care needs of all our residents are met.
Group activities such as indoor volleyball, craft, bingo, cards, ten pin bowling, dancing and social outings are just some of the events our residents enjoy on a daily and weekly basis. At Gloucester Residential Care we proudly boast the first sponsored community garden, featuring a veggie patch and raised garden beds. We conduct regular gardening sessions and residents relish the chance to get in the garden, get their hands dirty and watch their efforts develop into edible herbs and beautiful flowers.
Residents absent of the revered ‘green thumbs’ may prefer to sit back and relax reading a good book in our separate Library where a vast range of books are available for residents use. Complete with Internet access, the Library offers residents the opportunity to stay connected with interstate or overseas family and friends or for some to explore and learn a new skill. Training and education provided by our staff arms residents interested in using this service, with the technical know how to stay in touch or even enjoy a game of patience or two!
For those looking for a little more action, our indoor volleyball sessions offer residents a fun, stimulating opportunity to keep physically fit and be socially active. Music sessions hosted by our fabulous activities director are adored by many of our residents, and are a fun opportunity for residents to showcase their hidden talents or sit back and enjoy being entertained.
Great care and consideration is taken to ensure we facilitate the individual medical, physical and well-being requirements of our residents. A medical review and assessment provides us with the opportunity to cater to personal needs, desires and requirements on a personal and individual basis. Weekly physiotherapy and podiatry appointments contribute to the overall medical plan and form an integral part of maintaining the health and well-being of all our residents.
