Vacancy Yes
Our modern Care Centre has been open since 2009 providing hospital-level care. All our rooms have an en suite and views over either Chapel Rd, Whitford Hills, or our own fabulous internal French-styled gardens. We believe that the loveliest room in the Care Centre has to be our sun room off the lounge and dining room. It overlooks our bowling green, but has views over to the new Ormiston Bridge and the park areas off Chapel Road. There is always something to see from here. Our bedrooms all have built in shelving for displaying your precious items and photographs and a built in recess to take a flat screen TV. Each of our spacious rooms have their own private en suite, (toilet, bathroom and shower) and this incurs an additional daily charge. This is not met by WINZ or the MOH subsidy. Please contact our Nurse Manager for more information.
