Is it time to talk about aged care?
Choosing the right home
If you’re ready to start looking for a residential aged care home, you’re probably feeling plenty of emotions right now: a little anxiety, maybe some sadness, but also excitement and relief. The next step you’re about to take needs to be the right one for you – so to help with any confusion, we’ve pulled together a guide of what to consider when choosing a residential aged care home.
Cost, fees and government assistance
Moving to an aged care home is a big decision. It’s a new way of living, you’ll need to think about finance when you plan for your move. Let’s take a look at the fees, costs and government assistance available to help you transition to an aged care home of your choice.
Five signs it’s time to talk
If you’re supporting an older parent, grandparent or other loved one, you might not be sure when it’s the right time to start talking about residential aged care. Here are some common signs you may recognise that indicate home care may no longer be the best option for your loved one.

We’re here to support you. It matters to us who you are as an individual, how you like to live each day and what is meaningful in your life. Our values of love, care, hope and humility are at the heart of our quality care to all our residents.
Age has no barriers for success
John Pascoe – Resident at St Martin’s
John had yearned to become a well-known musician in his younger years but unfortunately life caught up to him and he gave it up. Five decades passed and John was given an opportunity of a lifetime to help lift the spirits of his fellow aged care residents at St Martin’s Residential Aged Care Home.
Dressed as the King ‘Elvis Presley,’ John sang his heart out to an audience via Facebook livestream which was streamed across most of our residential aged care homes. It was a huge success! He was labelled the new “King” in town by USA Today. His videos would be seen across the world garnering more than 60,000 views in less than a few days.
John was gobsmacked, “I’m more than surprised. If you told me a few days ago, I’d have said ‘pull the other leg’. It’s just incredible.” John said he hadn’t felt this good in a very long time and attributes the team at St Martin’s for allowing him the opportunity to perform.
A playlist of memories
Celebrating the transformative power of music, everyday Queenslanders living in aged care homes are given the chance to share the story behind their special song, giving us a glimpse into the lives they have lived in their own words. Warm your heart with these special stories and share in the surprise as some of Australia’s best artists give the gift of song to our aged care residents.
