As with any of Menarock Life’s aged care residences, an integral part of our Life Care program is to develop individual care plans which provide a holistic approach to meeting residents’ needs. Care plans are reviewed regularly to ensure they continue to meet the needs of each resident including their mental, spiritual and physical well-being.

Our care is also supported by visiting specialist services for physiotherapy, podiatry, a dietitian, dentistry work and speech therapy.

The Aged Care Home we have our Mother in is excellent. We feel very fortunate to have been able to get Mum into this home, she is very well looked after, is as happy as she can be considering her illness and the staff are excellent friendly and go above and beyond. We cannot recommend this facility highly enough just fantastic. Thank you.
