Lynch’s Bridge is 57 bed facility offering permanent and respite care, including a 20 bed secure memory support unit. Every bedroom has a garden view and a spacious ensuite bathroom. Residents share two large leafy courtyards, and bright lounge rooms.

A daily Lifestyle program brings people together for exercise, music, art and other activities to nurture skills and make life fun. Friends and relatives join in for events, outings and meals.
