The Enliven difference

Enliven Central embraces the Eden Alternative – an elder-directed model of care. At Woburn Home you’ll be supported to maintain your independence and routines, and to continue with your hobbies, interests and passions.

Your pet is welcome to move in with you if it ‘gets on’ with other people and animals and your grandchildren and other family are always welcome to visit. If you’re a gardener we have plenty of space and if you’re a cook, our chef is always looking for a helping hand! There is also a high level of family and community involvement at Woburn Home. Residents are welcome to entertain visitors at any time.

A life worth living

A highlight for many residents is the social life. As well as enjoying the company of others at a similar stage of life, Woburn Home residents get involved in organising daily happenings and special events – making the most of the varied social calendar.

Regular activities and events include the shopping trips, art classes, sight-seeing trips, guest entertainers, craft, themed parties and gardening projects. Residents are encouraged to invite their family and friends to enjoy the various lounges, gardens and courtyards, or join them for a meal.

Your place. Your space.

At Woburn Home you’ll enjoy the community feel, shared lounges, entertaining areas and lovely gardens. But of course, you’ll also have your own private room. This is 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.

We’re also able to offer some premium rooms. These rooms are larger with ensuite and kitchenette options.

We have a podiatrist and a physiotherapist that visit weekly, and we can organise for other health professionals to visit if required.
