The residential services at our aged care facilities provide the highest quality aged care within our warm and friendly communities. All our 18 homes (1790 beds) come with well trained staff that can support a broad range of care needs to suit each of our clients: from clients who are still fairly independent, to those with complex needs such as people living with dementia, right through to end of life care. We are here to be that extra support families need in ensuring their loved ones are well cared for and feel safe.
