Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

At Rosewood we believe it is our responsibility to provide the highest standard of care, to enable our residents to maintain a quality of life that is best suited to their individuality preserving independance and promoting self fulfilment.

Care is given in a holistic manner meeting the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of our residents.

At all times residents are treated in a sensitive, understanding and respectful manner promoting and maintaining dignity and privacy. Our focus on care is person-centred.

We recognise residents are part of a family outside the facility and will endeavour to inform and involve the family members at all times in a team caring approach.

Our residents are cared for in a warm, safe and supportive environment ensuring care, comfort and companionship.
