Maintain health and wellbeing with our lifestyle and activity programs
At St Louis, we're redefining aged care and what it means to be in a nursing home. We offer a range of exercise and artistic programs aimed at ensuring our residents are engaged in a variety of fun, and intellectually stimulating activities.
Our swimming program was recently awarded the DRTA 2019 Award for Excellence. Our staff are committed to helping our residents live a fulfilling life and we will do everything we can to ensure they enjoy their time here.
Stay socially active with our weekly outings
Regular social outings to cafes, libraries, cinemas, shows, museums and other local community clubs enable our residents to stay connected with their community. We have our own buses and take residents out to places they enjoy weekly.
We welcome family members and friends to join us on these outings.
Enjoy a choice of nutritious meals
Our nutritious menu offers a range of delicious and dietitian-approved meals for our residents. All meals are freshly prepared onsite by in-house St Louis chefs. Specific dietary requirements are easily accommodated. Bottled wine, beer and other drinks are offered with lunch and dinner in our lovely dining room overlooking a leafy courtyard.
Remain close and connected with your community
We encourage our residents to stay connected to their local community and the social activities they have always enjoyed. Public transport, shops and local community centres are all nearby. Family and friends are welcome to visit any time and we welcome pets too.
Mum’s stay was the best thing that I, and she could have hoped for. The kindness and consideration of all the staff, along with the dedication to finding ways to meet Mum’s individual and sometimes unconventional needs, was short of amazing. I can’t thank you all enough, and I would highly recommend the St Louis Nursing Home to anyone who has a relative or friend who may need this type of care.
