MAKING A DIFFERENCE TO

Who We Are
A strong sense of community, team work and professionalism is what brings Chaffey Aged Care together to provide person centred care and excellence through leadership, innovation and best practice for the residents that live with us.
Chaffey Aged Care officially opened its doors and welcomed its first residents in September 2007.. In 2012 an additional 17 beds were added. In December 2017 we completed a further major construction project with a further 22 beds added bringing the total number of beds to 100. We now accommodate 93 residential aged care places catering to the needs of permanent, respite and palliative residents as well as 7 beds dedicated to the Transition Care Program.
A new state of the art laundry was also added along with a gym, a refurbished kitchen and staffroom, new furnishings and a café. The café provides a wonderful new experience for residents and their visitors as well as staff and community members and has been a great success.
As an organisation we are proud of the care which our staff provide. We value respect, compassion, dignity and integrity and apply these values in the delivery of care and services to our residents.
We welcome inspections of our home for prospective residents. Our dedicated staff will be able to answer all your questions about residential aged care.
