Residents can enjoy the beautiful Maranoa Gardens; the original native gardens of Victoria. Beckett Park is also right next door and the north facing apartments within Concierge Balwyn enjoy beautiful park views.

The activities calendar is always full; our residents enjoy attending exercise classes, mindful colouring, the men’s group, craft and knitting groups and many other activities. Our residents also enjoy the social aspects of the community and partake in the many organised outings. In quieter moments our residents enjoy the games and jigsaw rooms, library, theatrette, billiards, gym and exercise machines as well as gorgeous sun lounges and courtyards situated throughout the community. The beautiful library is well supported by our friends at the Balwyn Library who provide our residents with many great novels and books to get lost in.

This community has a range of modern, self-contained and spacious, one, two and three bedroom apartments with secure garage facilities, kitchen, cooktop, fridge, beautifully-appointed lounge-dining area and your own private bedroom with ensuite.

Frequently Asked Questions

Want to know more, or have a different question? Send us a message and we will be happy to help!

Can I have my family and friends visit anytime I want?

Yes! We love having visitors and do not have set visiting hours.  It is your Freedom home, so you can have visitors as you please and they can even stay overnight with you if you wish. 

Will I be separated from my spouse or partner?

At Freedom, couples stay together. We are totally committed to ensuring couples stay together, regardless of their changing health needs.  Find out more about living at Freedom as a couple here.

What is the difference between Freedom Aged Care and a nursing home?

At Freedom you will have your own private self-contained home, whereas nursing homes are typically in communal buildings, where you have limited privacy and independence.  As a genuine alternative to a nursing home, you will have access to 24-hour aged care that evolves with you through all stages of your journey.  From everyday support for those with minimal care needs (such as assistance with cleaning, nutrition, or social activities), high clinical care, dementia and memory impairment therapy, and palliative care when the time comes.  Balanced with activities, social interaction and entertainment, providing total quality of life for those living there, rather than focusing on only immediate care like most nursing homes.  At Freedom you can continue to live with your spouse and keep your family together, whereas this is not always possible in a nursing home.  More about our home care communities here.

What are the costs?

Freedom residents purchase their home under a 99-year lease, there is an initial purchase price of your new Freedom home and weekly fees for the community services and 24/7 personal care. Weekly services charges and care fees are set at a level that covers Freedom’s costs and no more, and those on the Age Pension can defer a portion of these costs. Residents can also access government-funded care packages that help cover the cost of care, and can be used toward purchasing equipment and consumables. 

 

At the end of your time with Freedom, Freedom keeps a percentage of the resale price of your Freedom home, which is known as a deferred management fee (DMF). The DMF covers the costs involved in providing all the wonderful amenities you enjoy as a resident in your village community. This DMF is set as a percentage of the property’s value when it is sold on to its next resident, with a higher percentage returned to you, or your estate. We encourage all parties relevant to the decision making process to meet with our sales consultants, who will provide a detailed overview of Freedom’s fee structure and answer any questions you may have. We are completely transparent about any costs and if you would like any more information please feel free to call us on 1800 647 813 or enquire here.

    Islander Day
    Freedom Aged Care Rochedale hosted an Islander Day on 31st May, and from all the fun we had, we could very well have been on a cruise ship breezing through the South Pacific at cocktail hour!
