Hawthorn Village is a 40 bed residential aged care facility located in Bright, North East Victoria and forms part of the overall Alpine Health Multi-Purpose Service.
Hawthorn Village is located 100m from the Bright Hospital and provides low level support to permanent and respite residents in single room accommodation.
As a low-care facility, residents may come and go from the facility as they wish.
Hawthorn Village is set amongst beautiful gardens sprawling over two acres with each room opening out onto a private veranda with a view of the garden. Due to its proximity and their low level requirements residents are often able to independently continue to be part of the community.
Hawthorn Village is designed and staffed to offer people requiring minimal nursing care a safe place to live. Alpine Health’s goal is to provide care that meets the needs of the resident. If the resident needs change and they require a higher level of nursing care, which cannot be provided at Hawthorn Village, residents, and their families will be assisted by the Nurse Unit Manager to seek aged care accommodation which meets those needs. Residents and families are encouraged to choose a high-care facility to move to if or when their care needs change.
Alpine Health strongly encourages the resident and their families to secure a place on the waiting list in the high-care facility of their choice when they first move to Hawthorn Village. This decision will avoid further disappointment and reduce the stress of moving if the time comes that you or your family member can no longer be cared for at Hawthorn Village.
