The Kilmarnock Heights difference
Enliven’s Kilmarnock Heights Home embraces the Eden Alternative – an elder-directed model of care. That means we’ll support you to make decisions about your personal wellbeing, maintain your independence and routines, and to continue with your hobbies and passions in a way that’s right for you.
A life worth living
At Kilmarnock Heights Home we’ll support you to keep up with your hobbies, interests and passions. After all, that’s what adds life to life!
As well as enjoying the company of others at a similar stage of life, residents of Kilmarnock Heights Home can choose to get involved in organising daily happenings and special events. That in itself makes for a varied social calendar! The constantly changing ‘Community Chronicle’ includes activities such as sight-seeing trips, guest entertainers, arts, craft, theme parties, picnics and meals out.
Of course, one of the great things about life at Kilmarnock Heights Home is the involvement of family, friends and the community. Residents are encouraged to invite their loved ones to spend time with them enjoying the various lounges, gardens and courtyards, social events or a meal. You’re welcome to entertain visitors at any time.
And, if you have a pet that is part of the family too – don’t worry, small pets such as cats, birds and even dogs can move in as long as it ‘gets on’ with other people and animals. Give us a call to find out more.
Your place. Your space.

The rooms can be furnished, but residents are invited to make the space their own. You can bring along your own familiar furniture and furnishings. Many residents bring along photos, artwork, ornaments, furniture and bed covers.
