Residential Aged Care Placements
Residential aged care is for residents that are no longer able to manage without some care and support, as opposed to home care where care is provided in your own home.
Residential aged care can also known as a “nursing home” or “aged care facility”.
If you or your loved one need assistance with day-to-day activities or health/nursing care, moving into residential aged care may be positive option.
Aged care homes are the best way for seniors to receive the help and support they need – along with the added bonus of staff on hand 24/7 and the companionship of other residents. You or your loved one can move into residential aged care permanently or for a short stay (known as residential respite care).
Nursing and care staff in residential aged care homes are there to assist you or your loved one with day-to-day activities from cooking, cleaning & laundry, to dressing, showering, medication management and 24-hour care if needed.
Residential aged care homes in Australia are required to be approved and accredited by the Australian Government and are run by private companies, charities and other not-for-profit groups.
Australia’s aged care system is one of the best in the world and aims to ensure that every single older person is able to receive high quality support and care.

“Millennium is the equivalent of having a guardian angel guiding you through the incredibly difficult and confusing maze of finding and selecting the very best care facility, that will suit your loved one’s special needs and requirements. I don’t believe it would be possible to improve upon the truly excellent service consistently delivered by the kind, caring and professional Jayne Maini.”
