Regular Church services are held by various denominations. Residents are free to have their own minister of any faith visit at any time. We understand the difficulties associated with moving from a family home to a new environment and have developed a social support and non-denominational pastoral care program to assist residents and families. Our Pastoral Care Program has not only proved popular but has been recognised for its excellence as it is the recipient of the prestigious HESTA Award.
We have a non-denominational Chaplain on staff who is very active in our community supporting not only our residents but also their families.
“We work in such a precious environment with the opportunity to offer dignity and respect that the older members of our community deserve. We are privileged to be able to provide a place of safety; somewhere they can come in the later years of their life and live knowing that they’re safe; knowing they are well provided for; and knowing that the care that is offered is holistic care and doesn’t only embrace clinical care, but emotional, mental and spiritual care as well.”
