Everything you need to know about the facilities and services in aged care homes

Everyone needs a bit of extra help as we get older. At some stage, you will likely have to consider whether you should stay in your own own home or if you would benefit from the extra support of moving into a residential aged care home.

At Medical & Aged Care Group, we believe in providing the highest quality of care for our residents. We provide aged care facilities and services to ensure you are supported in your physical and emotional wellbeing, so you have everything you need to enjoy your lifestyle to the fullest.

What services are included?

Becoming a resident at one of our aged care homes includes a lot of services to support a comfortable and enjoyable lifestyle. Residents are encouraged to make their own decisions about their care, meals, which lifestyle programs to participate in, and which allied health services to receive.

The services we provide include:

  • A range of lifestyle and wellbeing programs and activities
  • Meals are cooked on the premises and all menus are reviewed by dietitians
  • Physiotherapists, podiatrists and palliative care providers visit regularly
  • Laundry is done on site
  • Residents' rooms are cleaned on a regular schedule

How qualified are the staff?

Everyone who works in our aged care homes are qualified and experienced in their role. From our chefs to our nurses, we choose our team members for their experience and dedication to helping others.

Our team is made up of a range of different professional roles which require different levels of qualifications, including personal care attendants and registered nurses. There will always be registered RN 1 nurses available on the premises at all times of day and night.

How much does residential aged care cost?

Our pricing structure includes a refundable deposit for the room or apartment as well as a daily accommodation payment. Our prices depend on the home you choose and the type of room, but our goal is to provide the highest quality facilities and service, as well as value for money.

You can find all our pricing information here.

Get to know the MACG difference

At MACG, everything we do is centered around our residents. We're a family owned business, and we have family values at the core of our approach to aged care. In practice, that means we provide the level of care and support we would want for our own family members and ourselves.

We get to know all our residents and what they care about, including cultural and religious practices and requirements. We also encourage our residents to make their own decisions about how they want to enjoy their lifestyle. From meals to activities and care services, having choice over the things you do promotes dignity, privacy, and skills, so our residents can enjoy their lifestyle to its fullest.

If you have any questions about MACG and our approach to residential aged care, please get in touch with our friendly team. We'd love to help.
