Our home is set within a lively local community with a library, supermarket, schools, community centre, Monash Hospital and other amenities within walking distance. Public transport is also easily accessible with bus and train services close by.
Indoors, we have a delightful range of communal areas and activity rooms, complete with tasteful decorations, including:
If you enjoy spending time outdoors you can put your green thumbs to use in our tranquil garden. There are also five covered outdoor courtyards, ideal places for relaxing and spending time with friends during the warmer months.
When it comes to aged care, we understand that one size doesn’t fit all. That’s why we take the time to get to know you, so we can tailor your care to help support you in the way that you prefer. Centrally located, Bupa Clayton is close to medical centres and doctor’s surgeries, while our dedicated doctor’s room gives you space and privacy when seeing a General Practitioner (GP) in the home.
You can be confident that we’ll be there for you when you need us, with access to a registered nurse 24 hours a day, as well as an easy-to-use nurse call system and a CCTV security system.
You will have access to a multi-disciplinary care team of registered nurses, carers and a Clinical Care Supervisor. Our passionate people love working at Bupa Clayton. Many have been working with us since the day we opened, four years ago.
We enjoy a strong relationship with a local hospital where we’ve set up a program to help reduce the need for hospital visits. The program is overseen by a doctor and has a dedicated team of nurses assisting with the clinical aspects of your care in our home. You will also benefit from medication reviews by the program’s geriatrician.
At Bupa Clayton we can provide care to help suit your needs at one of our five resident communities, each caring for 30 people. All our rooms are spacious, air conditioned and private. While our rooms have high quality furnishings, we encourage you to bring in personal items you’ve collected throughout your life to help you feel at home.

The move to an aged care home doesn’t mean that you have to give up your passions, interests and hobbies. You can choose from activities including:
Several residents have their own birds and goldfish as companions, and volunteers with dogs regularly pop by.
And if you just want to relax, why not get pampered at our very own hair salon with visiting hairdresser and manicurist!
Your choice is respected at Bupa Clayton, and for that reason we put a great deal of emphasis on meals which are prepared freshly in home. We are proud to be the two-time winner of the Monash Council Golden Plate award which recognises businesses throughout the area that provide a high standard of food safety.
Sometimes we all like to cook a meal our own way. Once a week we hold cooking classes where residents are invited to create meals for their fellow residents. You are always given the choice of dining in the private dining room, your own room or alfresco.
Our weekly happy hour and monthly pre-dinner drinks are a good way to socialize with other residents as is our 'Café D’Rezi program, where volunteer residents serve tea, coffee and cakes to fellow residents and have a good chat in the process!
We know how important keeping in touch with your family is. We welcome your friends and family at any time, giving you and your loved ones flexibility and peace of mind that they can pop by to visit you whenever they’d like.
Our weekly Wednesday family BBQs are a good opportunity to get to know each other better. We also host regular resident-relative meetings which are a great opportunity for you to let us know how things are going for you.
If there’s a special occasion that you would like to celebrate with your family and friends, you can celebrate in style by using our private dining room. Come and speak to us and we can arrange to cater for your guests.
At Bupa Clayton, we enjoy lots of activities and events with the local community. Visitors bring many events to our home, and we are fortunate enough to have regular entertainers who perform for us. A children’s choir from the neighbouring school brings much cheer, and our residents love to hear them playing in the playground next door. Old and young participate in arts, crafts, song and dance together.
We understand the importance of supporting your spiritual as well as your care needs so a variety of church groups also visit. You can also visit the local community centre, conveniently located next door, for regular swimming classes.
We also have themed activities surrounding important occasions like ANZAC Day, Mothers Day, Fathers Day and Remembrance Day. Many residents enjoy our regular multicultural days with food, dress and fun facts about the featured country. Christmas time is a particularly exciting one, with our staff embracing the festive season which brings a joyous atmosphere to the care home along with a traditional Christmas lunch.

Moving into a care home is a big decision and it’s important to make sure you choose the payment option that suits you best. Your costs may vary according to your financial situation and we advise you to seek independent financial advice before entering an aged care home to help you choose the right payment option for you.
To help ensure that care is affordable for everyone, the Australian Government calculates and regulates maximum daily fees and enforces limits as to how much you can be asked to pay for accommodation.
Your fees for aged care cover both the care you receive and your accommodation, and sometimes, extra services.
Your care fees cover daily living costs such as nursing care, housekeeping and meals. They are paid, in part, by all residents and are determined by the Department of Social Services.
For residents entering care after July 1 2014, you can choose from three simple ways to pay for your accommodation.
These options allow for more flexibility on how you pay for accommodation and are designed to be fairer for everyone.
You can visit the web page of your chosen care home on the Bupa Aged Care website and click on the “Accommodation” tab.
Some aged care homes offer a higher standard of accommodation, food and service in return for a daily fee. Whether you are in an Extra Service home or not, the quality of your care remains the same.
For people who need regular assistance with most daily activities
For people who need accommodation services such as laundry, room cleaning and additional help with personal care.
