  • separate kitchen, dining and lounge room for each household
  • a chapel and prayer/reflection room in each household.

The rooms at Southern Cross Care Dandenong go far beyond what you would probably expect from an aged care home.  Full of natural light; a space you can make your own; a place where you will be happy to welcome your family and friends.

All rooms include:

  • private ensuites
  • smart TVs
  • video conferencing, so you can see your family as you chat to them
  • Foxtel is optional 

See for yourself


We make it our mission to help you enjoy life, stay active, and do the things you love, as well as trying new things with new friends. We will work with you as you decide what type of social life and interests best suit you.  Rather than you having to fit in with our program, we will fit in with you.  Let us know about your interests and hobbies, and we will take care of the rest.
