Thankyou for considering St Catherine’s Hostel.
We recognise that the decision to move to an aged care facility is a major lifestyle decision which can generate a great deal of stress for the individual and family.
At St Catherine’s we are committed to minimising the anxiety associated with this by providing an homely environment where you can enjoy the later years of life in comfort and surrounded by people who are committed to providing warmth and care.
With 69 private ensuited rooms you can surround yourself with your own furniture and personal mementos and have the security of knowing that you do not have to move again.
Respite and permanent services are available to all members of the community.
While we do not focus on targeted care needs such as dementia, culturally specific care and care for veterans, all are welcome at St Catherine’s and the provision of care in all instances is based on the individual’s specific needs.
