A place where you will feel at home
Baptcare Brookview Community is a residential aged care community for older people who need more care than they can receive at home. It is an inclusive community and we value every person. Residents can socialise at our regular activities and in our lovely shared areas. Or you can spend time in your own room, which is very spacious. We want our residents to feel respected and comfortable as soon as they enter our community, so that it truly feels like home.
Great design for easy living
Brookview is directly beside Broadmeadows Valley Park. There are lovely views of trees through the large windows and all of the rooms have lots of natural light. Residents’ rooms are in small groups that share dining rooms and lounge spaces. This makes it feel homely as you will see the same group of people regularly. And it makes it easy to get to meals from your room. There is also a ‘winter garden’ walkway that links parts of the community. It has a comfortable seating area, which is a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by.
Live the way you want
How you live your life at Brookview is up to you. If you want to join in with activities, there are always lots of games and exercises on offer. But if you would rather sit somewhere quiet or watch TV, you can do that instead. We even talk to our residents to find out what they want on the menu. And when it comes to little things, like if you want to sleep in one morning, our staff support those choices.
Modern design with a homely feel
Brookview is a modern, two-storey building with 90 private rooms. We can provide care for people who need all levels of care. As well as having your own room, you will also be able to spend time in our shared areas, which include:

Keep up with your favourite pastimes
Our team of lifestyle staff have created a stimulating program of activities and experiences to choose from. Activities can be tailored to meet your individual interests, cultural background, and social, emotional and physical abilities. You can maintain your hobbies and interests by joining in with any of our diverse social events, church services, library visits and films. Along with a range of cultural celebrations and special guests, we celebrate significant birthdays and dates
Connected with our local community
Because our team truly cares about the community and spirit of Norlane, we chose to develop a specialised hub alongside our aged care facility. You can connect and engage with community groups, spend time with our committed volunteers, enjoy the nearby gardens and courtyards, or join one of our regular bus outings to local places of interest.
Room to host family and friends
Above all, Brookview is your home, so your friends and family are always welcome here. You can choose to spend time with them in our beautiful shared areas, or we also have private function rooms that you can book for special occasions.
Pastoral care is an important part of life at all Baptcare communities, including Brookview. Our chaplains are available to listen to residents and their families and journey alongside them, whatever their background or situation. We offer emotional and spiritual support, honouring each person’s unique spirituality and how they find meaning and purpose. Our chaplains also assist with prayer, worship, sacraments and other spiritual practices, including regular devotional and church services where appropriate.
