At Bupa Bellarine, we offer a combination of pioneering care and lifestyle programs to improve our residents’ overall wellbeing.
In 2011, the Aged Care Standards Accreditation Agency presented our home with three prestigious Better Practice Awards. This was for innovative programs that directly benefit the lives of residents. Bupa Bellarine is proud to be one of very few care homes to achieve this level of recognition. We also boast an award-winning Breakfast Club! And now in 2013 we have won another better practice award for bringing reminiscing into our lifestyle programme
Bellarine is one of five homes in Australia selected by Bupa to lead the way in dementia care. As one of two Dementia Health Hubs in Victoria we act as a resource for the local community. We provide outreach support, respite care and helpful advice. To support this most of our staff have dementia training, which has been developed in conjunction with experts in the field. This means they have specialist knowledge and an increased understanding that allows them to provide the best care for people living with dementia.
We understand how important it is for residents to stay connected. This is why our friendly staff actively encourage and enable residents to take part in our homes activities. Through our extensive recreation program we aim to promote interaction and friendship among residents.
Renowned for being warm and welcoming, visitors are invited to join in the activities. Children are also well catered for with a playground, toy cupboard and change room.
Pets are also a big part of life at Bupa Bellarine. Some residents have a budgie in their bedroom, others have been admitted with their dog. There are even cats, chickens, rabbits and guinea pigs, for added companionship while pottering around our beautiful gardens or lounging in the outdoor seating areas.
