Residential Aged Care

Making the decision to enter into residential care is a big decision. It’s not easy. But it’s often a very positive change for people and their families.

Castlemaine Health has four residential houses on site:

  • Ellery House
  • Thompson House
  • Penhall Hostel
  • Spencely Hostel.

Each person’s care needs determine which house suits them best. Each has a close-knit community supported by caring, local staff. Residents enjoy their independence. They make their own decisions about:

  • lifestyle
  • menus
  • hairdressing
  • personal care
  • social activities
  • health classes.

We encourage people to bring in their own furnishings and personal mementos for their rooms. Shared or single rooms are available, along with access to communal sitting, dining and recreational areas.

Castlemaine Health’s residential care is fully accredited under the Commonwealth Aged Care Residential Services Accreditation Program.
