Proudly not for profit and community based, Alwyndor provides an extensive range of high quality services to support you with your lifestyle goals and care needs.
Our home support and healthy living services are available to help you stay healthy, active and independent in your own home, while our respite options and 134 residential care beds provide higher levels of care if your needs change.
Set in beautiful gardens in seaside Hove (only minutes from Brighton and Glenelg), our modern, purpose-built centre offers light filled rooms, a cafe, gym, hairdresser, comprehensive lifestyle programs, on-site day therapists and visiting clinics, free resident WiFi, an in-room information channel, and optional wireless personal call pendants. Our delicious, nutritious meals are cooked on site.
Owned and run by the City of Holdfast Bay, we draw on our proud local history to continue fostering active, life enhancing connections with our local community. Our sunny Dorothy’s café welcomes people in, and is the setting for our weekly Tots at Dot’s multi-generational playgroup, where our residents play with visiting children and chat with the parents and grandparents who bring them in. Many of the engaging lifestyle activities for our residents are also open to our home support and healthy living clients, and the broader community – including concerts, bingo, craft workshops, bus trips, Men’s Shed barbecues and events and armchair travel sessions. It all works to build friendships and keep people socially connected.
Volunteers bring in their well-behaved pet therapy dogs, who love all the attention they get from our residents, healthy living clients and staff. And our reception area is always buzzing with people - coming and going from their exercise classes, gym sessions, group get-togethers, visits to our busy healthy living therapists or just enjoying a light meal or a coffee with friends at Dot’s.
Our front and rear gardens provide beautiful spaces to take a walk, to sit and read in the sun, or to enjoy a picnic or barbecue with family and friends. Indoors, the dining rooms are small and intimate and there are comfortable, beautifully appointed private lounges and sitting areas to relax, or to gather with company.
But it’s our staff who make Alwyndor so special. Highly qualified, experienced and dedicated – their focus is on ensuring that you can enjoy living your life, your way with the level of help you need.
Our Home Support team provides Home Care Package (levels 1-4), and our services are accessible to private clients.
We also offer transitional care and care awaiting placement for people leaving hospital, plus respite care.
