Life at a Nursing home by Delta Aged Care

Moving Into Your New Nursing Home

What To Bring?

We want you to feel like you are at home in your new surroundings, which is why we recommend you bring personal items such as ornaments, pictures or books to decorate your room so your new nursing home feels like home. You may also want to bring:

Nursing Home Furniture

Space permitting, you are welcome to bring small items. Have a chat with the care home manager before you move in to check if it will fit first


Each of our nursing care homes has a laundry service. Some of our homes also have laundry facilities which you are welcome to use. Some suggestions for what to bring include; daytime clothing, nightclothes, a dressing gown, slippers, socks or stockings, underwear and a coat or jacket.

Electrical Appliances in our Nursing Homes

You are welcome to bring your own TV (some care homes may have TVs supplied already) for your room and other electrical appliances too. For your own safety we will make sure these items are fully tested. All of our rooms are heated so there’s no need to worry about bringing heaters. In fact, Edenvale Manor and Emerald Terrace are modern recently built facilities boasting many benefits.

Nursing Home Mobility Aids

If you have your own wheelchair we’re happy for you to bring it with you. Some Primary Care Trusts supply wheelchairs to people who need them. Mobile scooters aren’t practical to use inside our homes, please speak to the care home manager about storing scooters.
