Constant care and companionship
We deliver a wide range of attractive aged care solutions, from low to high care, dementia aged care and respite care.
We’re keen for all relatives and friends of our residents to be involved in their loved one’s care, from participating in holistic aged care planning to regular reviews of individual care plans.
Spend time with your loved one in our home-away-from-home facility. Enjoy the amenities, the gardens or share a meal with residents for a nominal fee (by prior arrangement).
We also encourage you to take your loved one home, for outings or on holidays (health permitting).

Our warm, homely atmosphere is drawn from longstanding Ukrainian and European traditions.
We encourage residents to engage in what’s most important to them, including speaking their own language, excursions to external community events, rekindling old friendships and attending the on-site Mass every week.
A great leisure and lifestyle programWe have an extensive and diverse Leisure and Lifestyle program that focuses on maintaining each resident’s health, wellbeing, engagement and traditions.
