Community Home Australia

About Us

Let’s face it … Nobody wants to go into an aged care ‘nursing home’. No personal space, little privacy, a revolving door of staff that don’t know you and having to fit in with large numbers of other people.

For those with income or assets, the government now expects a significant contribution from you that provides you with no additional benefit. You get the same as everyone else and this can be several hundreds of dollars a day just because you have worked hard and saved your money.

Care in your home is a great alternative for some but research shows even if you are lucky enough to receive assistance, the increased levels of social isolation can be detrimental and the hours of assistance provided under government programs can be limited leaving you alone for hours and without the support you need.

Our guests in the community, enjoying life with the community

There is another way ... The Community Home Way

Our homes, in local communities with the care, support and services you choose. No sharing with one hundred others, no institutional surroundings … a family home with beautiful gardens and around the clock care in the community you love. Our guests actively participate in every facet of the home, from choosing activities and meals to hiring new staff members. 

We work with every guest and their family to tailor care and services to meet your needs. No compromises. No rules. You want it? We will supply it for you. You are in control of your care and your life. 

Unlike traditional aged care providers, we don’t employ large numbers of head office staff and instead put all our resources into providing our guests with the best aged care experience possible. We provide small scale, personalised care that meets the individual needs of each guest. You are not just another number because relationships are important. 

We don’t require enormous lump sum bonds to enter nor do we increase your fees as your care needs increase. Our fees and charges are completely transparent and will remain the same for the whole of your stay with us.

Nutritious and varied meals – no nursing home food here! We cook food fresh each day and have negotiated deals with local cafes and restaurants so you choose the cuisine and order what you like on special days. All our guests actively participate in setting the menu and preparing meals.

We are a fully Australian owned not for profit organisation dedicated to providing care and services in the local community. We are not beholden to large religious organisations, companies or shareholders – we partner with you and your loved ones to provide the care and services you want. This benefits not just our residents and guests, but also their families, our staff, and the greater community.
