Where Enjoying Life Matters

Only a short drive from the stunning coastline of Sydney’s northern beaches, Hardi Manly Vale provides accommodation for 80 residents in a cosy, home-like environment. With a mixture of single and companion rooms within the facility, we have accommodation to suit a variety of residents.

A bus stop located only metres from the front entrance means visiting Hardi Manly Vale is easy.  Buses from the city, through Mosman and The Spit, run regularly to and from the northern beaches.

Whether it be heading out for lunch at one of the local clubs, or heading down to the beach for some refreshing sea air, our regular bus outings are thoroughly enjoyed by our residents.  Bus outings are provided by Hardi Aged Care’s dedicated bus and driver.

With Warringah Mall, as well as a variety of restaurants and scenic points of interest close by, there are ideal options for family and loved ones to take residents out.  Alternatively, we have beautiful lounge areas in Hardi Manly Vale, both indoors and outdoors, where visitors are always welcome.

Chair Yoga & Meditation

During these uncertain times when group activities are limited, visitors and external therapist are restricted, robust mindful spiritual programming helps to create better quality of life for the residents. The Lifestyle team at Manly Vale thought offering meditation with mild yoga posture and relaxation music would be a great way to reduce stress and anxiety within the residents . The team incorporated this mindfulness practice into the lifestyle planner every Tuesday at 10.30am in the Central Courtyard. Our energetic lifestyle team threw a light on the benefit of yoga and meditation before starting of the activity. With rising demand and increasing popularity we had two yoga sessions on Friday, 15th May and Thursday, 11th June in our morning activity. This mindful body scan and seated meditation with different breathing techniques were highly appreciated by the residents who were present. The soft sounds of meditation music bring miracle after few sessions and we would be positive to put it in our monthly lifestyle planner. It indeed helps to ground our minds from repetitive thoughts and brings positivity towards daily life. Our favourite resident Jutta Smith said “Let us do it everyday morning and brings positive feeling in our life. John Eaton highlighted by saying that “This practice improves the quality of our life”. June Choptij stated that “I would do the breathing techniques every morning before start the activity”. Joan Shepherd mentioned that “Meditation creates wonder”.

  • Residents in all Hardi Aged Care homes take part in a Music and Memory program. Music therapy has been increasingly used in dementia-specific care to help residents recall memories and emotions from their past, with notable benefits including improved
    mood, less anxiety, reduction in pain, decreased dependence on medications and stimulating positive interactions.
    Through surveys, research, and a steady stream of amazing stories, the music and memory program has documented many benefits of the personalised music program.

  • It has been 5 months since our father James passed away but we wanted to again acknowledge Elaine and staff for the time, commitment, care and compassion that you showed to James during his illness and to all members of our family. After reflecting back, I think it is important to say that even though Hardi Aged Care Guildford isn’t part of our daily lives we still hold the nursing home in high standards. So, this email is to just say that Elaine and the staff are still in our hearts and were an important part of our journey with dad. A journey that was extremely challenging, but we have peace in our hearts knowing that dad was with you at the end.  We came to know some of the residents well and still think of them.

  • “My mother passed away after nearly nine years at Mountainview as a high care resident. I just wanted to say that the staff were wonderful and treated her with respect and dignity. Over the years, as to be expected, we occasionally had issues that needed sorting and they would get straight onto it. I cannot recommend Mountainview highly enough. My mum had no choice but to go into high care following a stroke so initially was distressed at being there, but the love, friendship and laughter provided on a daily basis by staff, residents and relatives meant that she was happy in the last few years of her life. Thank you Mountainview.”

  • “I moved my parents from another facility to Hardi Aged Care at Seven Hills one year ago. It is the best thing that I have done for my parents.In my opinion I say that they moved from a backyard soccer coach to the institute of sport! They want for nothing. They are both in the extra services unit. They each have their own spacious rooms with bathrooms attached. There is a lovely dining hall on the same level, below is another dining hall/lounge room and outside is a lovely garden. Mum and Dad want for nothing.The staff at Hardis are all nice and treat my parents with the respect and love they deserve. All the staff from cleaning, kitchen, maintenance, reception, nursing, laundry, lifestyle staff and management all treat each resident with the same level of love and respect and I believe this is what sets this nursing home apart from all the rest. I am really thankful that Hardis was recommended to me as I do believe that if I had not moved both my parents they would not be here today.”

    Seven Hills – Cornelia Cole (May, 2017)

  • “I would like to thank all of staff looking after my mother Carol. Your team in this area go the next level in caring and I would recommend this nursing home to anyone who asked me. I would like to say a big thank you for all of the help and kind nature all your team has given my mother.”

    Blacktown – Daran Halkett (August, 2016)

  • “My dear friends, what can I say but thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Everybody at your lovely aged care home has been playing well above their weight when it comes to the care that Peter was provided with, I can name a few individuals such as John, Amy, and Greer but everybody knows the list is much larger than that, especially me! Not much else to say except for a very very big heartfelt thankyou to all your staff at Mountainview. The best aged care facility in the world.”
