clip_image001The Independent Living Units at Boneham Aged Care Services provide secure, affordable housing to older people to allow them to live independently.

The 25 cottages provide residents with the following benefits:

  • Independence
  • Security
  • Comfort
  • Companionship
  • Central location within the town

The rental cottages are self-contained and each one consists of one or two bedrooms with bathroom, lounge, kitchen, laundry and front and rear porches. Each unit has floor coverings and blinds fitted. The furnishing of cottages is the resident’s own responsibility, as is insurance of personal possessions. The two bedroom cottages have a carport under the main roof.

Cottage residents are invited, from time to time to become involved in activities and functions at Mary Cecelia Hart Court. A resident forum meeting is held quarterly and cottage residents are encouraged to attend.

Cottage residents are able to access any community services they may have previously had in their own home. These services include Community Health, Meals on Wheels, etc.

Unit 1The cottages are classified as Independent living and as such, a resident must be capable of caring for themself. The cottages are classified as Retirement Village Living and residents must be of Aged Pension age to be eligible to reside within the complex.
