Situated within the tree-lined streets of West Leederville, Emerald Life is surrounded by well-established parks and gardens, and is in walking distance to Cowden Park and Lake Monger. The surrounding trees provide a stunning backdrop for residents to enjoy from either their room, one of the many communal areas or up close from outside.
Emerald Life offers residents and resident family members several calm and relaxing indoor and outdoor areas for family catch-ups.
The towering central garden spanning two-storeys provides shade and interest for our residents. The peace and tranquillity that these areas provide is enjoyed by all, and spending time here provides residents with an opportunity to socialise and meet friends and loved ones.
For the animal enthusiast, Emerald Life has a thriving aviary in our outdoor activities area providing companionship for residents. We also welcome your pets visiting our residents.
Emerald Life can accommodate up to 91 residents. There is a range of single and companion (twin) rooms which all feature either a garden, terrace or courtyard view.
For your peace of mind, we provide 24-hour care by registered nurses who are supported by a dedicated team of enrolled nurses and personal carers. We have the expertise to assist with complex care requirements, and will always discuss your care with you and your family.
In recognition of our very high standards of care and services, Emerald Life has been fully accredited by the Australian Government meeting all 42 of the expected outcomes.
Staying active and socialising is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Our activity program changes each month, but will always include bus trips and outings, arts and crafts, movie days and theme days. We have a number of volunteers supporting our home and have regular musical performances, fetes, raffles and visits from school groups.
Friends and relatives are welcome to visit at any time and can catch up over a cup of tea in one of our comfortable lounges or shady outdoor areas. There are cafes nearby that are ideal for outings.
Your room will be furnished for you, but we encourage you to bring personal belongings such as photographs and soft furnishings to help you feel at home. There are television sets that you can watch in our common rooms, but you are welcome to bring you own television or radio if you wish.
Enjoying a variety of delicious, nutritionally-balanced meals is an important part of maintaining good health. From our central kitchen, our executive chef, sous chef and dietician create menus that provide variety and maximum nutritional value without compromising on taste. We offer choices of hot and cold meals, cater for allergies, intolerances and culturally-specific needs, and create a special menu for a theme day each month.
You can view some of our menu options by reading our What's on the menu? flyer.
