Residential Care

As you grow older, you may find that you need more help with day-to-day tasks or health care which cannot be met in your own home. At this time in your life and with the support for your assessed health needs through an 'Aged Care Assessment', entry to a 'nursing home' environment may be beneficial.

You may need this extra help because of an illness, a disability, an emergency or because of the needs of your family, friends or carer. Staff in a residential home can help you with day-to-day tasks (such as cleaning, cooking, laundry); your personal care (such as dressing, grooming, going to the toilet); or 24-hour nursing care (such as wound care, catheter care).

Our residential care facilities, commonly known as 'Karinya' or 'Maxwell' to our community is owned by the community and operated under the auspices of a Board of Management approved by the Australian Government to care for you by providing either permanent, secure dementia or respite care.
