Finding the right Aged Care Services for Yourself

let's help you find the right aged care services

At Olivet Care, we understand and respect your desire to age on your own terms and that your journey is different from everyone’s else

With no one-size-fits-all solution, we acknowledge how planning ahead can be in some cases difficult. 

You never know how your needs may change, or in other cases, there may be some fears or negative preconceptions about what it means to receive help. Either way, we are here for you!

Our aged care facilities in Melbourne’s eastern suburb of Ringwood are designed with your needs in mind, with accommodation and programs focused on building relationships and promoting independence.

There are a wide variety of ways you can get help as you age, each with its own benefits and some with its own challenges. 

Once you’ve identified the right services for your current needs, head over to the My Aged Care website to do an assessment.

Day Programs

Day Programs at Olivet are perfect for those who need extra support, social activities and care during the day. 

Our programs provide clients with a sense of community, encourageing socialisation and independence, participating in daily activities, and forming friendships with others. It’s reassuring support for families or friends concerned about a loved one living alone or alone during the day.

Our centre based respite program allows you to provide your primary caregiver with an opportunity to take some time out for themselves, while you connect with other like-minded individuals, join social activities or receive support and care at Olivet’s Ringwood facilities. 

The program operates during the day in Olive Grove House.

The day centre program features a range of social events, entertainment, activities and more. We aim to help those living independently or isolated live a full and healthy life, with a focus on kindness, compassion, responsibility, and respect. 

  • Socialise with peers and remedy the isolation that sometimes accompanies advanced age
  • Enjoy meals and recreation
  • Assist with referrals to other aged care services

Olivet’s day program is a great way to build relationships, get out of the house for a while and experience new things, while still getting care when it’s needed. If you’re considering day care for yourself or a loved one discuss your needs with our team today.

You can book a tour of our Day Care centre, and meet with our team or contact us.

10 Questions To Ask When Searching For The Right Full-Time Care Facility For A Loved One

Dementia & Memory Support Residential Care

Memory loss and early signs of dementia can disrupt your daily life in many different ways. You may feel distracted, have trouble with ordinary activities like preparing a meal, experience difficulty finding your way in a familiar place or struggle to manage your finances.

If this sounds familiar, you may be going through the early symptoms of dementia. 

Early symptoms can vary a great deal and some can be very subtle. It’s normal to occasionally miss or forget specific information such as appointments or phone numbers, but for early symptoms of dementia, these symptoms are more recurrent and tend to increase over time. If you notice any signs, don’t ignore them and schedule an appointment with your doctor. In case of a diagnosis, don’t despair. We are here to support you every step of the way. 

We understand seeking early support could be a difficult decision, with a lot to consider, so If you’re considering specialised care, Olivet’s dementia services may be a good option to consider. 

At Olivet Care, we can provide specialised dementia care for you in the comfort of your home or as a resident of our facilities. With a focus on compassion, kindness, responsibility, and respect, we’re dedicated to your wellbeing and independence.
