Menarock Life Emmavale aged care residence Lower Templestowe is a modern purpose built facility consisting of 50 private rooms offering permanent and respite care. Emmavale’s many communal spaces (inside and out) include a BBQ area, terrace, gazebo and multiple gardens. Along with our gentle resident cat who is an adored companion for our residents, these provide our residents with great options for developing friendships within and provide options for families to find new settings for each visit.
An integral part of our Life Care program at Emmavale is to develop individual care plans tailored to each resident. These care plans provide a holistic approach to meeting residents’ needs and are reviewed regularly to ensure they continue to meet the needs of each resident including their mental, spiritual and physical well-being.
As well as providing our residents with a sense of security about their health, the care plans also give our carers a sense of satisfaction and achievement to see the positive impact they have on our residents.
