Village Glen Aged Care Residences Opens at Mornington
Village Glen is well known on the Mornington Peninsula for Village Glen Retirement Living in Capel Sound, a premium retirement community that “has it all” and has been thriving for 40 years.
Over the last seven years Village Glen has worked tirelessly in the Aged Care space, opening up an incredibly luxurious facility in Capel Sound in 2014 where care meets state of the art.
Village Glen’s most recent project has been Village Glen at Mornington. A brand-new campus that offers the best facilities and equipment in aged care. But more importantly creates that feeling of home.
Walk the corridors and you are met with pops of colour of teals, blues and burnt mustards. The comfortable furniture scattered throughout, reading nooks and game corners are all key to creating a space that is full of warmth and you certainly couldn’t miss the beautiful photographs of Africa on the walls (taken by Chas Jacobsen, founder and managing director of the Village Glen Group and his family when they took a trip to Africa in 2017). As Chas himself said “I wanted to create a real home for residents, and as I am a builder by trade, this is where my passion is. I am proud to say Village Glen at Mornington is just that, a home”.
Village Glen at Mornington has all the facilities that a resident could want or need with a sports green, cocktail bar, hair and beauty salon, physio zone, vegetable garden and more, but we think a home is created by much more than just the best facilities. It comes from the comfort and warmth of a space and most importantly the people that are in it, the caring team of people that 24 hours, seven days a week, care for our elderly. This is why Village Glen’s motto is ‘where it is all about people’.
Village Glen at Mornington proudly opened its doors in July 2018, with the official opening on Saturday 23rd February 2019. The facility was graciously opened and welcomed by Hon, Greg Hunt MP as Minister for Health and Member for Flinders. The residents and their families, along with staff and visitors, witnessed Greg Hunt and Chas Jacobsen who were also joined by two very special residents, Neil Charge who moved in on the day the facility opened, and Evelyn Harvey the oldest resident at 102 years old, to cut the ribbon to officially open Village Glen at Mornington. As Greg Hunt explains “Chas and the whole Jacobsen family have been a key pillar of Peninsula aged care for decades, with three generations of the family now directly involved in supporting our local community. This new facility will allow them to assist even more families on the Mornington Peninsula and it was an honour to join Chas, Neil and Evelyn to officially open Village Glen Mornington.”
Village Glen also opened its doors to the public on this day for an “Open Day,” giving the community the chance to have a look at all Village Glen offers. Visitors couldn’t miss the beautiful bay views which Mornington is famous for. Who wouldn’t want to wake up every morning to that view! They got the chance to have a play on the sports green and some lucky visitors got to stop at the cocktail bar for a drink, a snag and to enjoy some live music while on a tour of the facility.
