Wellbeing and care

Rhythm of Life

Our standards of care are lived through the philosophy and principles of our Rhythm of Life™ care model – embracing the power of individualised care by genuinely including people’s interests and passions into their daily experiences. We aim to work in partnership with you and your family by respecting your identity, choices about your life and how you would like to live each day.

Our Care Model

The Rhythm of Life™ care model supports autonomy, dignity and encourages people to form and strengthen partnerships of care. The care we offer responds to the diverse needs and choices of the people we serve. We monitor feedback and outcomes to ensure we continually improve our services.

Our standards of Care

Your care and wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do.

We are committed to maintaining the level of care and resident outcomes outlined by the Aged Care Quality Standards set by the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission.

Our Initiatives

Our individualised care initiatives include:

  • flexible breakfast times and choice of lunches
  • resident committees to assist in decision-making for the home
  • food forums to discuss menu ideas
  • activity boxes including craft and games that are accessible at any time


On the menu

All our food is prepared fresh by qualified chefs and cooks in our on-site kitchens, with seasonal menus approved by a dietitian for variety and nutrition. Our team places a high importance on food safety and compliance, and all meals are prepared in accordance with National Food Safety Standards. We run food focus groups and encourage feedback from residents and their family.

Residents have a choice of hot meals, and salad and sandwich options, and we cater for special dietary requirements including individual and cultural needs.


We have food service to suit your schedule including morning and afternoon tea, family-friendly dining rooms that are always open, and café areas and quiet spaces where you can relax and wind down.
