"Care You Can Trust"

Masonic Court is a not for profit care home, set in spacious award winning grounds.
We offer rest home and hospital level care to enable people to transit between care levels without needing to transfer to another facility.
Most rooms offer ensuite toilet facilities at no extra charge. Family and visitors are welcome and there are several day rooms available with complimentary tea and coffee to enable visits in a more homely environment.
We have Registered Nurses rostered on duty 24 hours per day to lead our team of experienced caregivers. With a Clinical Nurse Leader on duty 5 days per week giving guidance and support.
Our menus are nutritional balanced and are reviewed a dietician every two years to ensure that we meet the needs of our older population. The meals are prepared on site.
We have two dedicated Recreation Staff to ensure that we offer a wide range of interesting activities designed to meet individual needs, and when possible we offer activities 7 days a week.
Call us or call in to experience and appreciate our family-focused care.
