A new standard in care for Bacchus Marsh and Moe
Apr 30, 2018
The opening of Royal Freemasons Bacchus Marsh and Royal Freemasons Moe in late 2018 will mark a special milestone in our proud 150-year history as part of our first newly-built residential aged care homes in regional Victoria.
“Our latest facilities will provide private rooms with ensuites for 144 residents, catering for both couples and single people, and dedicated memory support units to help meet the specialised needs of residents with dementia,” says Royal Freemasons Trustee John Chanter."
"No comfort, technology or mobility feature has been left out.”
Royal Freemasons Bacchus Marsh and Royal Freemasons Moe will offer state-of-the-art amenities. Each room has split heating and cooling systems as does the whole site. Attractive room furnishings support our ageing-in-place care model including fully adjustable beds with pressure mattresses, lifting and supportive mobility devices, and lockable bedside cabinets. Other features include Wi-Fi and Smart-TV, free Foxtel in selected lounge areas, an on-site kitchen, medical clinic where residents’ chosen doctors can visit, a children’s playground and CCTV security, all set in beautiful landscaped grounds. “We’ve designed the setting to draw residents to a central dining area which is typical of a family home, where they can choose to eat on their own or in the company of others. There are spacious lounges in each wing, and tea and coffee making areas for residents and their families. A central café is also available for residents and families.” “The home will employ approximately 190 people. They are all properly briefed and trained to deliver premium quality services to residents,” says Chief Services Officer, Danielle Carey-Munro. Our elders deserve to live in a secure, dignified and rewarding environment - it’s what makes us different - we strive to meet and exceed individual needs, with respect, care and honesty.
