Upper Ferntree Gully

Nestled in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, Menarock Life’s Sherbrooke is a small 45 bed residential care home offering both permanent and respite aged care services for individuals and couples.
The light filled residence comes with well-maintained gardens including a sunny internal courtyard and is surrounded by established gardens. Sherbrooke has a variety of areas to enjoy offering two sitting and dining rooms along with a large activities area.

Our carefully selected staff are dedicated professionals who are fully qualified to meet the residents’ personal care needs. They are trained to deliver the best service with qualified personal care, 24 hours a day, every day, with a special understanding of the needs of the aged. Our residents are also supported with enrolled and registered nurses throughout the day, evening and night.

An integral part of our Life Care program is to develop individual care plans which provide a holistic team approach. The care plans are regularly reviewed to meet the needs of each resident assisting in the care of the resident’s mental, spiritual and physical well-being; giving our carers a sense of achievement and satisfaction.

As part of Dining Life our trained cooks provide delicious varied menus with fresh selections each day. A qualified dietitian will also ensure that the specific nutritional needs of our residents are met, including religious and cultural requirements. Special requests and celebrations can also be catered for by our team. As part of Dining Life Sherbrooke has developed a specialised breakfast program for residents living with dementia which enables them to be involved in the preparation of their own breakfast at a time of their own choosing, which provides a unique opportunity to empower each individual’s choice and decision making. Family members are also welcome at meal times.

In Live Life we offer activities, recreation and therapeutic programs including crafts, gardening, word and board games, exercise groups and bus outings. Special events and cultural days are also celebrated with the residents such as international days, traditional religious festivals and popular events such as Melbourne Cup and Grand Final Day!
