A thriving community
Baptcare Hedley Sutton Community was established in 1972, and has been providing exceptional care to residents ever since. We pride ourselves on our inviting atmosphere and sense of community. Our on-site café is a hub of activity for residents and their visitors to enjoy a coffee, snack or meal. While you’ll feel like you’re on the café strip, you also have the comfort of knowing that trained staff are on hand.
Hedley Sutton offers a range of spaces for everyone to enjoy – whether that be a quiet game of chess in the library, or hosting family and friends in our scenic courtyard area. We have many sun-filled communal areas to spend time with others, includinga gazebo and BBQ area. And for the times when you prefer to stay indoors, you can relax in one of our comfortable lounges.
The latest innovations in aged care
Hedley Sutton has advanced systems in place to ensure the best of care for our residents. For medication safety, we use an electronic medication system that communicates directly with our residents’ doctors and pharmacists. Our bathrooms are designed with coloured rails to assist residents living with Alzheimer’s, to reduce the likelihood of falls. And you’ll be reassured to know that every resident has a nurse call button within easy reach in both the bedroom and bathroom.
A place where you can feel at home
Hedley Sutton is a modern, two-storey building with 100 private rooms, catering to all levels of care. Both levels have three wings, each with their own dining and lounge rooms. Our smaller dining rooms foster a more intimate setting for mealtimes and enhance the sense of homeliness. Meanwhile, the general layout of our community is designed to encourage residents to move around and enjoy the communal areas, while making all facilities easily accessible from any room or level.
Every room at Hedley Sutton is private – residents’ suites are their own personal space. Residents are welcome to personalise their suite so that it feels like home, by hanging pictures on the wall or even bringing in their favourite chair. There are four different room types – see pricing snapshot for full details. All rooms are spacious, featuring:
- Private ensuite bathroom with nurse call button
- High-quality furniture and fittings
- Individually controlled air-conditioning and heating
- Built-in wardrobes with lockable storage
- Fully integrated nurse alarm system
- Optional TV installation.
We have many areas that characterise the community feel of Hedley Sutton. These include communal courtyards and outdoor areas, which are easily accessible so that you can make the most of a beautiful day. Our ground floor social area is popular – especially when we hold our regular activities for residents and their visitors – and there are comfortable sitting areas in our lounge. We also have a library on-site, if you’re looking for a quieter change of scenery.
While pets cannot stay with residents, they are very welcome to visit with family or friends.
