Victorian not-for-profit aged care and retirement living provider Mayflower has taken over the operations of Edith Bendall Lodge in the Melbourne suburb of Pascoe Vale.

The not-for-profit facility of 60 aged care beds and 14 independent living units adds to Mayflower’s portfolio of 320 residential aged care beds, 130 home care clients and 98 independent living units at sites in Brighton, Reservoir, and Macleod.

Mayflower acting chief executive officer Dione O’Donnell said there was a natural fit between the two organisations.

“Edith Bendall Lodge chose Mayflower because of our aligned values and strong commitment to high-quality person-centred care,” Mr O’Donnell said in a statement. “We know residents and families love the warm, welcoming, homelike environment at Edith Bendall Lodge, where every resident is treated like family – and Mayflower is committed to continuing to deliver this.”

Mayflower – which now has four facilities in Melbourne including its flagship integrated care community in Brighton – has recently completed a redevelopment of its Reservoir facility. The provider also has redevelopment plans underway for its site in Macleod along with planning permits for two new integrated care communities in Gisborne and Keilor.
