Life in Our Aged Care Homes

Perks of Living in our Aged Care Homes

Daily Living

The first thing we do when you come to live in a MercyCare Aged Care Home is take the time to listen. We want to get to know you and understand your needs and preferences. That way, we can personalise your care plan to suit you. After all, everyone is different, with unique needs and preferences. Our professional MercyCare team of nurses, therapists and care workers provide excellence in care, working with medical and allied health experts, like your GP, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, podiatrists and many more to ensure all your health needs are met so you can get on with life.

Community and Belonging

When you live in a MercyCare Aged Care home you are connected to the vibrancy of your surrounding community. We invite community members in, whether that be through our team of dedicated volunteers with their companionship, music and fun; or our leading intergenerational care program where children from our Early Learning Centres visit to connect and learn from you. There are also plenty of opportunities to get out and about through excursions and activities. Our Aged Care lifestyle enables you to feel connected and a sense of belonging to other people and your community.

Lifestyle and Activities

At a MercyCare Residential Aged Care Home, we want you to give you opportunity to continue pursuing what you love in life. An Aged Care home lifestyle is as busy or as tranquil as you want it to be. Choose the activities, groups or one-on-one sessions that appeal to you. Each of our homes have a dedicated Lifestyle Coordinator that puts together meaningful activities, events and groups that reflect the passions of residents. From crafts to dance, exercise to gardening, whatever your interest we will partner with you so you can pursue what you love in life.

Dining Arrangements

Food is one of life’s great pleasures. At all our MercyCare Aged Care Homes, our meals are prepared on-site in our kitchens by our trained chefs. Passionate about seasonal menus, we believe in nutritious and wholesome food that make for enjoyable mealtimes. We listen to what our residents say about our food, with each of our homes offering options to choose from and a menu that reflects the feedback, special events, diversity and tastes of residents.

Dementia Care

Whether you are living with dementia or caring for a loved one living with dementia, we can support you with specialist, experienced, person-centred care at our MercyCare Residential Aged Care homes. We want you to live a meaningful life as independently as possible. Our programs are designed for residents to build positive connections with each other and provide support so you can live your best life. We do this through supporting you to engage in meaningful activities that align with your life prior to calling MercyCare home. Learn more here.
