Woburn Home is hugely popular. Its relaxed and engaging atmosphere leaves you feeling warm and assured.
Residents and visitors to Enliven’s Woburn Home love it’s relaxed and engaging atmosphere that leaves you feeling warm and assured.
Woburn Home is Enliven Central’s largest home, but it doesn’t feel that way – it’s very neighbourly. That’s partly due to the friendly staff and residents and partly due to the layout.
The wings at Woburn Home are known as neighbourhoods and each ‘street’ takes a name from the Monopoly Board. For example, your room might be 4 Vine Street and you have 11 other residents in your street.
Like any family home, at Woburn Home there are lots of shared spaces, including the lounges, domestic-style kitchens, entertaining areas, the recreation room, chapel, gardens, courtyards and homely dining rooms. Residents use these spaces whenever they like, to socialise, read, do activities and host visitors. You’ll often find avid conversations happening in the shared spaces!
Residents of Woburn Home enjoy the well-appointed rooms, many of which include an ensuite bathroom, and are encouraged to make these spaces their own.
Many residents bring items such as photographs, artwork, ornaments, bed covers and even favourite pieces of furniture so they can set up their rooms just the way they like it. Some residents even move in with their pets.
