The two storey 144 bed low care Pines Lodge is regarded as Australia’s most modern and up-to-date aged care establishment and totally replaces Southern Cross Care’s first major caring facility, which opened in 1976.

The Pines Lodge is directly across the road from Bucklands, a major $18 million nursing home that opened in 2004, giving Southern Cross Care two adjacent facilities that cater for both high and low care needs, allowing residents the peace of mind to age in place.

The Pines Lodge, which incorporates two buildings, sets a new standard in aged care and offers every conceivable facility that senior citizens need. It’s spacious, uses warm pastel colours, is secured by garden walls and modern and attractive fencing, is set in a garden-like environment, and makes maximum use of natural light.

Each private room has its own ensuite, individually controlled air conditioning, and three nurse call buttons – one in the bedroom and two in the bathroom - while the communal areas are second to none.

With particularly generous rooms – each with leafy views over gardens, The Pines Lodge offers residents a state-of-the-art facility with a tranquil, relaxing and very serene living environment, both indoors and outdoors.

A typical room plan is pictured on the right.
