About us


Darren Midgley - Chief Executive Officer Chaffey Aged Care

Since opening our doors in 2007, Chaffey has strived to deliver the very highest standard of care . Two extensions later as a facility with capacity to now offer 100 bed places in our community across residential aged care and transition care we are well positioned as the regional leader in the delivery of residential aged care services.  Staff and volunteers at Chaffey pride themselves on delivering person centred care tailored to meet the individual needs of residents who call Chaffey their home.


Living at Chaffey is like a home away from home, residents are encouraged to personalise their private bedrooms which overlook landscaped courtyards or the many garden spaces that surround the home and the river flats and vineyard. There is always an event or activity for residents to get involved in.  Chaffey also caters for those who prefer a nice place to sit and enjoy quality time with residents and friends in our many courtyards, café, library and reflection room. These spaces have all been enhanced by our latest construction project and the newly refurbished and extended resident lounge/dining room is a picture with beautiful panoramic views and state of the art audio visual and equipment and surround sound installed along with modern and luxurious soft furnishings provided..  Whatever the preference, most residents are also welcome to attend the legendary happy hour on a Friday afternoon which is hosted in the dining room extension or attend a cinema like experience in the lounge, followed by a wonderful home style cooked meal or trip to the café for a barista style beverage.


Chaffey Aged Care is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who play a vital role                                                                            in the governance of the home. Many of our board members are specialists within their

own field of work.  This provides us with a strong skills based team who work closely

with the CEO in determining strategic direction of our organisation.


Chaffey Aged Care is lead by a dynamic and experienced Management team.

Darren Midgley, our hands-on Chief Executive Officer heads up the leadership team.

Darren is ably supported by Haley Sheriff, Director of Aged Services who oversees 

the day to day operational needs of residential aged care and independent living. 

The provision of aged services is further supported by Lucas Lloyd, Clinical

Operations Managers and Donna Lovell, Manager, Corporate and Hospitality Services.

Each member of the leadership team brings experience and passion for the care of our community's most valuable citizens.


All of the staff at Chaffey Aged Care strongly believe in the organisational values and

are committed to our mission. Each and every one of us come to work each day, full of

purpose and conviction and strive to provide the best care we can for our residents.
