Life at Baptcare Peninsula View Community residential aged care
An extended family
We are committed to offering the best residential aged care in Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula, and each day we provide exceptional care to our residents as if they are our own loved ones. Our residents’ families are a valued part of our community, and we encourage families to spend time in our lovely shared spaces and join in with activities when they visit. We have a busy social calendar and comfortable communal areas, so residents regularly get together and enjoy each other’s company, building the strong connections that make Peninsula View really feel like home.
At Peninsula View, we have a special initiative where young adults with intellectual disabilities visit our residents. There is always plenty of fun and laughter during these visits, from games of carpet bowls and balloon volleyball to group Tai Chi sessions and singalongs. This ongoing, regular program allows our residents to build new friendships and special bonds, and cements our connection with the broader local community.
Designed for enjoyment
During our recent major refurbishment, we focused on creating spacious communal areas that are easy to access and enjoy. Sunshine filters through the large windows and skylights in our dining and recreation areas, where wide tables and cushioned dining seats provide inviting places to sit and relax. Bedrooms and shared areas are fitted with wooden floorboards and tasteful furnishings, creating a contemporary feel. We have cosy spots as well – you can grab a book from our collection and set yourself up on a lounge chair near one of our fireplaces. And we’ve made sure that there are plenty of settings to enjoy those beautiful peninsula days, with internal courtyards, landscaped gardens and lots of comfortable outdoor seating.
Innovations that make a difference
We keep up with the latest innovations in aged care so that our residents receive the best care possible. For example, we communicate directly with our residents’ doctors and pharmacists through an electronic medication system to ensure medication safety. And with easy-to-reach nurse call buttons in residents’ bedrooms and bathrooms, you can rest assured that assistance is never far away.
A place where you can feel at home
Our spacious community is set among leafy surrounds, just off the Mordialloc Highway. With 102 rooms, including four double rooms, we cater for all levels of care requirements (low to high). Most rooms have garden or courtyard views, and some look out to Westernport Bay. We have plenty of shared spaces too. Indoors, residents can spend time in our lounges, sitting and dining rooms, or in the library. For some fresh air and sunshine, residents can choose between courtyards, verandahs, terraces and gardens.
Other amenities we have on-site for your convenience include a hairdressing salon and laundry services.
Peninsula View offers private, sole-occupied rooms and shared rooms that can accommodate two residents (e.g. couples). See the pricing snapshot for full details.

- High-quality furniture and fittings

Stay involved with the local community
Along with our special friendships with young adults from Wallara and Naranga School, we have many other connections with the extended community. An annual highlight is when local school children visit to sing Christmas carols to our residents, and we are often treated to concerts by other visiting groups. We also have our own bus, which we use regularly for special trips and outings to local attractions so our residents can enjoy the beauty that the surrounding area has to offer.
Room to host family and friends
Above all, Peninsula View 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
As part of providing a warm and homely environment to residents, visitors are welcome at any time of the day. We invite family and friends to be part of activities and mealtimes, and to enjoy time with their loved one in our gardens and shared spaces.
A change in health, or increasing concern about your family member’s frailty, safety or isolation at home can mean that aged care accommodation is the next step.
Carers at aged care homes can help residents with day-to-day tasks (such as cleaning, cooking, laundry); personal care (such as dressing, grooming, going to the toilet); or 24-hour nursing care (such as wound care or catheter care).
Residential aged care can also help people to stay connected with interests and with others.
Baptcare draws on over 70 years’ experience in aged care as well as the skills and commitment of our trained, understanding staff. We’re here to support families during a transition that can be challenging.
We invite you to contact us to discuss current or potential future accommodation and if it matches your needs.
If you are interested but there isn’t a vacancy we’ll record your details on our waiting list and keep in touch about potential vacancies.
Potential residents, families and healthcare professionals are welcome to contact us to get an update on vacancies at any time.
We consider a number of factors to manage our waiting lists. People in urgent need are the highest priority. Other factors include someone’s readiness to enter an aged care home, and if the accommodation that becomes available suits their individual care needs.
If you are offered a room and are not ready at that time you can decline the room without it affecting your position on the waiting list.
Your suite is your own and you can personalise the room as much or as little as you wish.
For example you can hang pictures on the wall, use your own quilt from home, and bring in your favourite easy chair.
We do request that rooms are kept un-cluttered, with enough space for care staff to move freely about. For this reason, we don’t recommend bringing in large pieces of furniture.
