History of Holmwood Aged Care
Holmwood Aged Care in Lalors Road, Healesville was once referred to as ‘Holmwood Guest Home’ owned by Miss Brown that offers comfortable, homely accommodation.
In August 1979, then owner Pauline O’Brien converted her house at this address into ‘Holmwood’ nursing home where she was the Director of Nursing.
The home has a proud history of providing care and accommodation to seniors in the local community for nearly 40 years.
Neighbouring land was purchased with plans to build an extension to the existing aged care home. On the 6th August 2018 the modern extension opened its doors. It can accommodate an extra 40 residents in comfort and style.
The new extension is named ‘Townsend’ after Nurse Melina Townsend. Melina was born in Melbourne in 1884 and came to Healesville in the early 1920’s as a triple certified nursing sister. She established a small hospital on the corner of Ryrie Street and Lilydale Road (Maroondah Highway). Melina was well respected, a competent Midwife and a great friend and adviser to the local community.
The provider of Holmwood Aged Care is Bonnie Bridge. It is an Australian Government accredited and funded aged care home.
