Caring for Residents at Chaffey Aged Care

Care Types


Chaffey Aged Care provides care that is responsive to the needs of individuals.


Through our ‘Person Centred Model of Care’ our service delivery is flexible so that residents can live their life as close as possible to how they did in the community. We aim to create an environment of homeliness with a variety of social activities for fun, fitness and socialisation. All care is both best practice and evidence based.


Chaffey encourages consultation with, and the participation of residents, family and friends or representatives in making decisions about resident care.

Permanent Care

If you are looking for permanent care in a residential aged care home, we can explain the often complicated Australian aged care system to you, go through the detail of fees and other complex issues and then discuss the various care and accommodation options that may be appropriate.


Chaffey Aged Care offers a large spacious residential home which began it's life 10 years ago and two major construction projects later - most recently in 2017, offering all aspects of residential aged care accommodation, dementia specific care and palliative care. We are known and respected as the leading residential aged care service in Sunraysia.


Permanent Care enables you to live in a secure environment and be provided with 24 hour care individualised to your needs. Chaffey becomes your home. As a permanent resident you are also entitled to 52 days of social leave per year which enables you also to leave the facility and stay overnight at another location perhaps with your family or friends.  As a permanent resident of Chaffey you can have direct input into your care and the things that directly effect you in the home.  Your input is both valued and welcomed.


Respite Care

At Chaffey  Aged Care, we understand that being a Carer can be extremely demanding and often physically and emotionally draining.  As a Carer, it is important to consider your own health and wellbeing so that you do not become ill or exhausted yourself.


Respite Care offers the opportunity for both the Carer, and the person being cared for, to take a break. Respite care may also be useful on a planned or emergency basis to help with Carer stress, illness, holidays or those times when the carer for other reasons may be unable to provide care.  If you need Respite Care you may be interested to find out more about what Chaffey can offer by making an enquiry.


Chaffey Aged Care is able to offer respite care for anyone with ACAT approval for up to 63 days every financial year.

Palliative Care

Chaffey provides a comfortable physical, spiritual and emotional environment for delivering care during the end stages of life. We respect your right to stay in the home surrounded by your loving family and friends. Clinical care is provided by a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals to ensure the most comfortable and dignified palliative pathway respecting every residents advanced care plan wishes are met.


Dementia Specific Care

Chaffey aims to provide a safe and secure living environment for those displaying severe or challenging behaviours that can no longer live independently.

Transition Care Program (TCP)

The Transition Care Program aims to help improve independence and confidence after a hospital stay. It provides a package of services including low intensity therapy and personal and/or nursing care as part of an ongoing but slower recovery process. This means that you and your family or carer have time to consider your long-term care arrangements, which may include returning home with community support or accessing the level of care provided by an aged care home or support services.


Chaffey Aged Care provides seven (7) beds dedicated to the Transition Care Program as contracted with the Mildura Base Hospital.  Further information regarding availability and the benefits or opportunities for entry into the program may be obtained by directly contacting the TCP staff direct via the hospital reception on 03 50 22 33 33.
