Aged Care

Residential Aged Care

Sometimes, for a number of reasons, older people are no longer able to live at home. If this time comes, Residential Aged Care can ensure that you have all the care and support you need, in a welcoming and friendly environment. Residential Aged Care can be offered as either permanent or short term respite care.

At Otway Health there are seventeen single rooms and two shared rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. We encourage residents to think of this as their new home; we try to make sure they enjoy living here, and are able to take advantage of all the facilities and opportunities we offer. Residents are encouraged to maintain their links with friends or clubs, and we support them to continue attending functions and meetings in the community.

At Otway Health we provide flexible aged care beds which means care can range from providing accommodation and personal care, such as help with dressing and showering, provision of meals and laundry, occasional nursing care and other health and support services. Higher Level Care Offers care for people who need continuous nursing care or 24 hour access to assistance.

Respite Care

This provides short term care when it is needed and when a person intends to return home. It can be used on a planned or an emergency basis, for instance if you become ill, or if your carer is absent because of illness or holidays.
