We have been caring for disadvantaged older people since the 1960s and have been an accredited aged care provider for over 30 years.

The architecturally designed five storey building opened in March 2020 and boasts spacious individual rooms with ensuite bathrooms, individually controlled heating and cooling, light filled communal areas and strong connections with the local community. Located opposite Darling Gardens, this facility is close to shops, public transport, major hospitals and health services.

At BSL, Person Centred Living is at the heart of everything we do. We offer quality care and friendship for people in a warm and friendly environment. Inclusive and welcoming of people from all backgrounds and faiths, we take the time to get to know our residents and their families. We will work with you to tailor a plan to suit individual preferences and circumstances.
