Coburg Home for the Aged Inc.

Our facility was named after long-term Coburg resident and Mayoress, Dorothy Impey. Dorothy, with ladies from the Coburg Benevolent Society, commenced a Meals on Wheels service for the elderly people in the area. Through this work she saw a need for hostel-type accommodation. This was achieved, with Council, Rotary and Community support.

Opening its doors in 1971, the Dorothy Impey Home has provided care to the elderly citizens of the Moreland Community for over 40 years.

In 2009, a decision to relocate to O'Hea Street, Pascoe Vale South has allowed us to expand our capacity to accommodate the needs of 92 residents in a state-of-the-art facility. With the feedback from our residents and their families and our staff and friends of our home, we were able to incorporate features that give our residents optimal quality of life and maintain the homely atmosphere that many people comment on when talking about our home.

Features:

  • Large landscaped gardens that surround our home
  • Chapel
  • Internet hub with volunteer tutors
  • Raised vegetable garden beds
  • Undercover BBQ area
  • Coffee shop
  • Grandpa shed
  • Hairdressing salon
  • Beauty/massage therapy room
  • Snoezelen room
  • Pool table
  • Large screen TV's in lounge areas throughout the home
