WE CARE
We want you to enjoy your time here, and encourage you to talk over any ideas or concerns with our Clinical Manager or General Manager. It is a good idea to arrange a time to meet.

Our staff of registered nurses and qualified caregivers are all dedicated, caring people who have on-going training to meet the particular needs of all residents.

MAKING YOU AT HOME
We encourage residents to make their own decisions and to maintain their independence and self-care. Residents are welcome to personalise their rooms with pictures, photographs, their own private television and the mementoes they treasure.

Visitors are welcome. Our preferred visiting hours are between 8 am and 8pm. If a loved one is ill, provision can be made for relatives to sleep over. Family or friends are also welcome to take their loved ones for an outing.
