TESS’ Retreat

Short term respite care in a Cottage setting.

Respite care comes in a number of forms.

Tess’ Retreat offers overnight and day respite support in a cosy and welcoming three-bedroom cottage. We work with you to arrange respite tailored to your requirements, with overnight respite, up to 3 or 4 nights at one given time.

Our customised cottage is nestled on the boundary of our beautiful Village Glen retirement village in Capel Sound, on the Mornington Peninsula.

Tess’ Retreat guests will also enjoy the beautiful, spacious, private and secure outdoor garden areas.

TESS’ Retreat

A day in the life

Your meals and leisure activities are flexible based on what you would like to experience and enjoy.

The menu is designed by Village Glen’s Executive Chef who has trained with Maggie Beer and specialises in creating wholesome food for older people.

A day at Tess’ retreat could look a little like this:

  • Vegetable gardening
  • Arts & crafts
  • Planned outings
  • Games
  • Walks
  • Movies
  • Baking
