Shepparton Villages has vacancies available now for their Independent Living Units (ILUs).

The units, located on all three Shepparton Villages sites at Tarcoola, Kialla Gardens and Rodney Park Village are two-bedroom units, all modernised with small garden areas and the benefit of emergency alarm buttons.

“This is totally independent living as part of the Shepparton Villages family,” admission coordinator Helen Mathieson said.

“Our ILU residents are a social lot, organising their own bus trips and activities when COVID-19 allows, but at the same time, ILU residents have the benefit of privacy if they choose so, as well as being in close proximity to the residential care facilities.”

Ms Mathieson explained many ILU residents volunteer in the residential facilities or visit loved ones who require the care that the facilities can offer 24/7.

“COVID-19 has restricted a lot of activities, but we are still able to give prospective residents a tour of a unit and some information,” Helen said.

Helen Mathieson can be contacted re Independent Living units on (03) 5832 0800.
