Mercy Place Boronia’s close-knit community has recently relocated to the Montrose aged care precinct.
Our home has had a tree-change and is now nestled in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, just off Mount Dandenong Tourist Road.
Within walking distance of some lovely quaint stores, you can enjoy a relaxing afternoon stroll with family and friends, or sit within the courtyards of the home and enjoy our beautiful gardens and visiting birdlife.
Mercy Place Boronia is next door to Mercy Place Montrose, where residents from both homes have access to a range of retail and community spaces including a cafe, grocery store and a bar.
We partner with residents to ensure each person feels cared for and comfortable. With activities, lifestyle programs and regular Mass, Mercy Place Boronia is just the place to nourish your spiritual emotional, social and physical wellbeing.
Visiting hours may have changed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Please call the home for details.
