More about…

Activities and outings

There’s plenty to do for those who are in the mood for recreation – craft activities, games and puzzles, exercise sessions, housie, sing-alongs, reading in the library, movies, concerts, billiards and excursions, just to mention a few. Our recreational therapist keeps programmes varied and interesting.

Delicious meals

Nutritious home cooked meals are served in the dining room, or in your room if you’re not feeling well. Breakfast in bed is always an option.

Emphasis is on a tasty menu of family favourites. All meals are prepared and cooked on site by our professional kitchen staff and special diets are easily catered for.

Visits from friends and family

Family and friends are welcome any time – there are no set visiting hours. You can entertain in your room, or use the home’s lounge areas. Redwood’s communal lounge can be booked for special family occasions. As a family member, you can discuss things as and when you want.

Please phone (03) 578 7691 to find out more.
