About Colton Close

Part of the Glenroy community for over 30 years, Colton Close has a long-standing reputation for providing genuine aged care within a supportive and homely living environment. Passionate staff take the time to know each resident personally, understanding their individual needs and family history in order to give genuine and tailored care.

Residents are encouraged to maintain connections with the local community through a varied and inclusive lifestyle program. Gladstone Kinder comes to visit each month, and residents are able to take the shuttle bus to the local market every Friday. Colton Close also hosts a music club, gardening club, visits from pets homes, and regular BBQ's in the warmer months.

Temporary Restricted Visitor Access
Benetas is temporarily reinstating restricted visitor access to all aged care homes in Metropolitan Melbourne in line with the reintroduction of Stage Three Restrictions by the Victorian Government. This is a preventative measure due to the heightened risk of community transmission. Further communications have been sent to families of residents living in Benetas homes across Victoria. More information on this decision is available.
