Our qualified staff are present around the clock. A registered nurse is on duty at all times. Residents have access to visiting doctors and other health practitioners including a physiotherapist, podiatrist, dietician, social worker and psychologist. We also provide specialised care and tailored activities for residents with dementia and other complex needs.

From music to art, gardening and exercise routines, you can choose a wide range of activities from our lifestyle program. We will also assist you to pursue the interests and hobbies you enjoyed before moving in and find new activities to keep you healthy and happy.
The amount paid for accommodation depends on a resident’s eligibility for government help. All fees for residential care are calculated according to government guidelines. Help with some, or all, of the accommodation cost are available to those that need it.
There is no minimum RAD to enter.
The maximum refundable accommodation deposit (RAD) is $550,000. The maximum daily accommodation payment (DAP) is $73.99 per day.
For example, a combination payment of 50 per cent refundable deposit and 50 per cent daily payment would include the RAD at $275,000 and the DAP at $36.99 per day.
Please note these prices are maximums and each case is assessed individually.
