How are you planning to get around? Does the aged care facility in Heathmont have a straightforward transport service? For example, Greenway Gardens provides residents with a free minivan for moving about in during the day. This means that residents can be driven to the shops or join in on day trips! For most elderly residents, this is a better solution to driving themselves.
