Our Rooms

The Low Hostel Care rooms all feature heating and cooling systems that can be individually controlled by the resident, as well as the latest in lighting throughout the room and bathroom, with several power outlets throughout the room. Each room has a kitchenette with washing machine/dryer, small fridge, sink and cupboards, large wardrobe with shelving and lockable drawers.

All rooms have telephone, wi-fi internet and TV connections, with an emergency call system located in the bathroom and beside the bed.  The bathrooms are well-designed bathrooms for easy showering. There is room for a coffee table and a couple of comfortable chairs, and other items of furniture such as bookcase or hutch, bedside table or chest of drawers. Of course, there’s lots of wall space for your favourite photos or paintings.

Our Superior & Deluxe single rooms measure 3.5 x 5.6 metres. Our Premium single rooms (4 x 7.3 metres) also include a large wall unit built in with shelving, drawers and space for TV.

High (Nursing Home) Care

High nursing home care at Anthem has been specially designed using today's best practice nursing principles.

Anthem's unique clinical care helps to minimise hospitalisation where possible.

Anthem has 24 single rooms for high care. There are 12 single rooms with shared bathroom for high dependency, and 12 Deluxe & Premium single rooms for those who are more mobile.

There are also two double rooms for any couples who are wishing to be together.

Telemedicine capabilities are built in to each bedroom, allowing the transmission of medical imaging and health information data to another healthcare site. This helps to minimise travel to other professional health services.  Lifters are built into the wall behind some beds for easy access should a resident need assistance getting in and out of bed.

Our high nursing home care facility includes three large lounge areas for activities every day. Visitors are encouraged to participate in our activities. We have a Hydrotherapy bath, using warm water as a form of relaxation and physiotherapy treatment.
