Powley is a place like no other - a pretty garden sanctuary that at its heart has a wonderful, old-fashioned spirit.

Nestled amongst pretty, peaceful, English cottage gardens in the heart of Blockhouse Bay, Powley is remarked upon for its friendly, caring, long-term staff, charming cottages and serviced apartments and even a tranquil chapel, all well loved by our residents and staff alike.

If you ever need greater daily support, we offer a full continuum of care, with a residential hospital and rest home level care on-site. Knowing that you will be treated with dignity and respect means you and your family can be confident you will receive the highest level of assistance from people you already know and trust. This also enables couples to stay close by even if your needs become different, with one moving into care while the other remains in the village.

This is a community with real heart, come experience it for yourself.
