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. Your room is your own space, so we invite you to decorate it to your own taste, e.g. by hanging paintings or bringing in your favourite quilt.
The rooms at Peninsula View are bright and comfortable, featuring:
- Ensuite bathroom (private, unless room is shared)
- High-quality furniture and fittings
- Lockable storage
- Neutral palettes and tasteful décor
- Garden or courtyard views.
Care tailored to your specific needs
Peninsula View is a residential aged care community that excels in providing support to those requiring a higher level of care. With registered nurses on-site at all times, Peninsula View is accredited to provide all levels of residential aged care including permanent, respite and palliative care. Each resident will have a personalised care plan, which will be developed together with the resident and their family.
Our qualified and experienced staff provide exceptional care and support. All our staff are carefully selected and trained to ensure that our residents receive the best possible care.
Beyond 24/7 nursing care, other allied health services available on-site at Peninsula View include:
- Foot care and podiatry
- Speech therapy
- Diversional therapy
You will be offered a varied choice of tasty, healthy meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All food is prepared fresh every day by chefs on-site. Meal options come at no additional cost to our residents. A dietitian helps to plan the menu and takes into consideration all cultural, religious and dietary requirements. Relatives and friends are welcome to join you for meals with advance booking.
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.
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.
Pastoral care is an important part of life at all Baptcare communities, including Peninsula View. 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.
