Bishop Tyrrell Place is a beautiful 75 place residential aged care facility situated in Cundletown. Opening in 2010, the facility offers a variety of options for aged persons including low, high, dementia specific and respite care.
Architecturally designed, the facility offers the very best in modern features and conveniences. Based on an innovative design, the building takes advantage of the delightful rural and garden views available. Additionally, the facility incorporates a ‘Care Farm’.
A first for the Manning area, the goal of the care farm is to improve residents’ quality of life by providing an opportunity to engage with nature and animals in a safe and nurturing way. Co-located by the Manning Valley Anglican College, students of the school are regular visitors to Bishop Tyrrell Place enjoying the interactions with the residents and the care farm.
The single rooms are all very spacious and feature their own en-suite bathroom. Additionally, there are an assortment of sitting rooms, lounge and activity areas throughout the facility where residents can enjoy the company of family and friends, spend some quality ‘alone-time’ and spiritual reflection or enjoy group activities.
Bishop Tyrrell Place is fully certified and accredited with the Department of Health & Ageing and the Aged Care Standards & Accreditation Agency.
The facility employs approximately 60 staff including the facility manager, registered nurses, enrolled nurses, care assistants, lifestyle & wellbeing and hotel services staff, clerical staff and a gardener. Additionally, Anglican Care employs a Lifestyle and Wellbeing Coordinator who works across all of our residential aged care facilities. Unique to each of Anglican Care’s residential aged care facilities is the role of the Resident Liaison Officer. The objective of this role is to ensure that the individual and social wellbeing needs of our residents are met according to Anglican Care’s mission, vision and values. The Resident Liaison Officers also act as a liaison for residents and relatives with due regard to the Charter of Residents Rights and Responsibilities.
The quality of care provided at Bishop Tyrrell Place is enhanced by the provision of a stimulating lifestyle and wellbeing program. Anglican Care also has an active community of volunteers, with many volunteers providing additional services and new friendships to the residents of Bishop Tyrrell Place.
Located within the Taree Anglican Community, the facility is approximately 15 minutes from both Manning Rural Referral Hospital and Mayo Private Hospital and enjoys close ties with the local GP’s, schools and other community groups.
