Aged care has never looked like this

Glengara Care is a premium, positive alternative to aged care, where we meet your individual care needs with tailored services while still providing the privacy, luxury and lifestyle you deserve.

This means you have the freedom to make the right choice for you. For us, it’s about delivering the right level of care—however and whenever you need it.

Before you move in, our care manager will sit with you to design a personalised plan for your care needs. As your needs grow or change, we’ll grow and change with you, too. You can progress from low to high care, to end of life care, without moving out of your apartment.

Care you can count on

Should the unexpected happen, you need the peace of mind and security that comes with knowing expert help and personalised care are available and close by.

The people in your life can rest assured knowing our emergency response team is onsite, alert and ready to help 24/7. Our team of registered nurses are onsite Monday to Friday, and on call after hours. All apartments are fitted with emergency buttons in the bedrooms and bathrooms.

Life on your terms

It’s easy to limit care to physical or medical needs. While these are fundamental, all of us are whole people—and connection and choice matter just as much.

At Glengara Care, our care is wrapped in respect and dignity, and grounded in what matters to you.

We give you the freedom to maintain your independence and to make the call on what matters most to you. We take everything into account: your independence and your physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing.

And if a bit of extra support around the house is what you need right now, why sweat the small stuff? We can make your life easier by taking care of your weekly clean and laundry.

“You have the freedom to come and go and set your own schedule, without the responsibility of things like grocery shopping.”

— Phyliss, Glengara Resident
