At St Johns Wood staff are using the Connect programme which is used Oceania wide and demonstrates values of passion, respect and to deliver excellence. It keeps residents in contact with the wider community, and we encourage excellence in all we do. It gives residents hope of keeping mobile and exercising to reach their goals.

We also have six Specialised Care Suites within our Rest Home/Hospital facility which are License to Occupy Units to which we provide either full rest home or hospital level care - the best of both worlds.
