Wellington Views Staff and Residents Enjoy a Brand New Look
Wellington Views |
Wellington Views has been supporting local families across greater Hobart since it first opened its doors several decades ago. And now, thanks to a $1 million renovation, the home is excited to continue its great legacy of providing the Old Beach community with a modern environment of warmth, service, and care.
Located near the junction of the Jordan River and River Derwent, Wellington Views stands as an 80-bed aged care home nestled on 16 hectares in a charming, semi-rural area of Brighton. Originally referred to as ‘Compton Downs’ by the local community, the home was later renamed as Wellington Views – a nod to its sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and the Derwent River.
Our staff at the home are passionate about building surroundings of support for residents – from physical spaces catering to their unique needs to an environment of social connection, including regular activities designed to inspire participation and physical and emotional wellbeing.
And now thanks to recent significant renovations, which were completed in September, Wellington Views is further equipped to fulfill this aspiration. The significant investment has modernised the home’s facilities, created an even warmer aesthetic environment, and ensured the home’s strong culture of high-level service and support can continue for generations to come.
Stepping through its doors, regular visitors to Wellington Views will immediately notice the wonderful new furnishings and furniture adorning the home, set against vibrant, new colours and paint schemes in every room. The home’s common areas and shared spaces have all received a welcome breath of new life, thanks to nearly 2,000 square feet of new flooring and the wonderful addition of modern artwork and ornaments.
Bedrooms have also been given a significant facelift to ensure residents wake up each day in a cosy and warm, yet functional, environment. This includes new furniture and soft furnishings, stylish bedding, and modern colours.
Another element of the home’s more modern approach is evident in the kitchen and dining areas. The addition of digital TVs ensure residents are kept across new seasonal menus, which they are pleased to enjoy together in updated, intimate dining spaces.
The renovations are just another way that Wellington Views and their staff are continuously striving to offer the best support they can, so residents can continue to an enjoy a great quality of life.
Jeannette Palmer is the General Manager at Wellington Views, and she says that the recent renovations have received tremendous feedback from residents and their families and has helped further embed a collective spirit of positivity and connection across the home.
“It’s been wonderful to see the great impact that these renovations have had on our Wellington Views community… among both our staff and residents,” Jeannette says. “Not only have they developed a warmer environment, but the spaces are more functional too, and this will only further help our team provide the highest quality of care and service for our residents.”
