Located opposite the beautiful Darling Gardens in Clifton Hill, Sambell Lodge is quiet but close to Melbourne city centre.
Sambell Lodge offers quality care and friendship in a warm and welcoming environment. We take the time to get to know you well, work with you to tailor a plan to your individual preferences and circumstances, and consult with you regularly to ensure your plan continues to meet your needs over time.
You are involved in all decisions about your care. We assist you to pursue the interests and activities you enjoyed before moving in, and you can choose from a wide range of activities we facilitate. We also encourage connections with the local community in many ways through a range of activity options, such as singing in a local choir or attending social events.
If you enjoy the outdoors you can relax in our landscaped courtyard, get active by gardening in the vegetable patch or enjoy regular outings to local cafes, shops and other destinations.
Our qualified staff are present around the clock, and you have access to visiting doctors and other health practitioners including physiotherapists, podiatrists, dieticians and psychologists. We also provide specialised care and tailored activities for residents with dementia.
Fees for residential care are calculated according to government guidelines.
The maximum refundable accommodation deposit (RAD) is $300,000. The maximum daily accommodation payment (DAP) is $47.34 per day.
For example, a combination payment of 50% refundable deposit and 50% daily payment would include the RAD at $150,000 and the DAP at $23.67 per day.
Please note that these prices are maximums and each case is assessed individually.
What are the first steps towards living at Sambell Lodge?
The first step is to have an assessment from the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS).
A health professional can refer you to the Aged Care Assessment Service. More information is available at the Australian Government website: www.myagedcare.gov.au or you can speak to your GP or local health practitioner.
