About Us

Glenview is a trusted not-for-profit aged care organisation offering a range of community services in Hobart. We’ll help you live your life to the full.


History

Built in the 1880s, the original Glenview house and its Norfolk Island pine trees have been Glenorchy landmarks for decades.

The Glenview Home for Aged Persons opened in 1948 when the house was purchased by the Anglican Diocese for the princely sum of 4,000 pounds.

The Glenview Auxiliary was formed in 1952, and the group had a passion for raising funds for the centre as it continued to grow and develop.

Over the years Glenview evolved and added new wings and buildings to meet the growing needs of the community.

In 2006, Glenview purchased a block of land in nearby Moonah, called Korongee.

A Men’s Shed opened onsite in 2009, and due to its popularity, a Women’s Shed was started up in 2018 which ran for more than a year.

In 2013, the Betty Mathers sensory garden opened. This garden area allows visitors and residents to enjoy a wide variety of sensory experiences in ways that users may not usually encounter.

In 2018, we kicked off the exciting addition of the Korongee project, which is a village designed specifically for people living with dementia. The village opened its doors in July 2020.

Glenview Consumer Advisory Body (CAB)

Glenview Community Services has established a Consumer Advisory Body to help develop and deliver better quality care and services for our residents and community clients.

All Glenview residents and clients in community care are represented by the CAB, which provides feedback to the Glenview board. These important advisory roles assist the board in making decisions and determining our strategic direction to contribute to a life that contains dignity, independence, and well-being.

Our advisors are residents, clients, or families and representatives of current or past residents or clients and have undergone a selection process to ensure the Glenview CAB represents a diverse community and set of required skills.

During the first meeting, the frequency, duration, method of meeting, and communication channels will be determined by the group.
