Everyone is welcome at Levin War Veterans Home. This unique home recognises the men and woman who have fought for our freedom and cared for our country. Levin Home has a rich history and vibrant future.

Residential dementia care
Everyone experiences dementia symptoms differently. That’s why the care and support we provide is individualised to your needs and feelings. Enliven’s practical approach to advanced dementia care focuses on enriching the lives of people with dementia and reigniting that spark for life. It supports Enliven staff and families to interact in ways that keep people with dementia connected to the world around them.

Enliven has found that providing those with dementia with both the emotional and physical care they need often results in improvements in language, memory, self-esteem and social interactions.

For residents with dementia or for elders who are wandering and finding themselves in unsafe situations, our secure dementia cottages have been designed to reflect a domestic home rather than a more clinical hospital setting. They include domestic-style kitchens, comfortable lounges, and outdoor garden and courtyard spaces.

We also offer short-term dementia respite, subject to availability.
