“The best part of moving to P.S. Hobson has been the very kind and caring people looking after me. The Stockland Shopping Centre next door is a bonus! On Wednesday morning, morning tea and shopping group is a fantastic chance to socialize, catch up and make new friends.” Lorna

P.S. Hobsons Nursing Home offers 14 single rooms, each with its own ensuite, and 23 double rooms with shared ensuites. Our double rooms are perfect for couples and are often enjoyed by individuals who form the closest of bonds and friendships with their ‘room mate’. Residents are encouraged to personalise their space with small furniture items, soft furnishings, photographs and mementos from home to make their room their own.

All rooms include
- Built in wardrobes
- Electric, height adjustable bed (sensor mats available where required)
- Telephone line available
- TV antenna
- Nurse call bell (bedside and bathroom)

Many rooms are equipped with overhead tracking, enabling staff to safely transfer non-mobile residents.

You need to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment (ACAS) Officer to become a resident in any aged care facility. The ACAS service can be accessed through Ballarat Health Services. Referral to the ACAS service can be made by your GP, service provider, a family member or carer, or it can be a self-referral.
