Located in the heart of Omeo our modern home boasts a pleasant rural out look that captures the essence of a high country environment. Refurbished in 1997 our home is comprised of 4 Low Care beds and 10 High Care beds. Our recently completed 2015 re-development upgraded us to 14 single bed rooms, each with their own private bathroom.
Omeo District Health provides care to our residents through our Division 1 and Enrolled Nurse work force as well as Lifestyle Co-ordinators, Allied Health professionals and an on-site medical clinic.
Residents enjoy a variety of settings within the home. Our comfortable lounges are often bustling with activity including visits from entertainers, Omeo District Health’s day care centre and other local community groups. Our quiet reflection room offers a more relaxing environment and can be used for meditation and spiritual gatherings of all denominations.
In our IT and crafts centre residents have access to a myriad of activities which they are encouraged to participate in by our Lifestyle Co-ordinators. Through our Lifestyle program residents have the opportunity to partake in regular individualised adventures and outings which take advantage of all the high country has to offer including our golf courses, rivers and mountains. To keep up to date with the goings on at our aged care home you can visit the Lewington House Blog.
All meals are prepared in house utilizing fresh produce across a 28 day menu. Needless to say our residents enjoy a healthy varied and balanced diet that is titrated for dietary needs. Meals can be served in the comfort of our resident’s room or in our communal dining room. Residents and their visitors can help themselves to tea, coffee and snacks in the resident kitchenette.
