Residents are provided with large, open lounge areas, each comfortably furnished with individual recliner chairs and couches, and large TV (LCD) screens for ease of viewing. Also available to residents are separate dining rooms at which all meals are freshly made every day should residents not feel like making their own meals in the modern kitchens. There is also a private dining room, designed to make you feel relaxed and at home.

Sweeping gardens provide space to stroll and relax within private and secure outdoor areas that incorporate courtyards, established trees, manicured gardens and raised garden beds, and peaceful retreats. All of this and yet only a short walk into the centre of town every service for your convenience.

In addition to the fine creature comforts provided in both Valley View and Wannon, residents can rest easy knowing that, being a part of the new hospital, all staff are fully qualified Registered Nurses, and event programs are organized 5 days a week by qualified planners to ensure activities are not only appropriately structured but sympathetic to individual needs.
