Springtime Sydenham offers a calm, friendly atmosphere and the accessible location adjacent to the Calder Highway making it a popular choice for elderly people in Melbourne’s west requiring high care and dementia accommodation. It is also able to provide day and overnight respite for carers of the elderly at home. Springtime Sydenham follows the commitment to care, excellence and choice that has earned Royal Freemasons an enviable reputation for providing modern, comfortable accommodation with a wide range of professional services and resources available on-site.
