Set amongst beautiful landscaped gardens, George Sautelle House is an oasis of tranquillity nestled in the quiet, leafy suburb of Farrer.
Goodwin village Farrer is scheduled for redevelopment from 2017, which will enliven our 40-year old village into a vibrant community focused on wellbeing and linkages to the natural environment. The new live-in care facility will include allied health services plus a dedicated dementia support wing, specially designed to be an enabling environment.
The wider village will include a café, hairdresser and visitor playgrounds.
Choose clinical expertise
Our level of care takes into consideration your overall wellbeing, with services that help you achieve the best quality of life. Our approach is person-centred care, meaning we treat you as a whole person, including mental and emotional wellbeing, not just a “diagnosis”.
We have a geriatrician working closely with our own Aged Care Specialist Nurse Practitioner, and who together lead regular Registered Nurse clinics with residents to ensure one-to-one attention around their health and wellbeing needs.
This means that you can be assured of the highest quality clinical care available. You will have carers you are familiar with and who know you as well as dedicated activities officers to ensure a quality lifestyle.
Choose comfort and lifestyle
All of our facilities give you the opportunity to balance privacy within your beautifully appointed room, with opportunities to socialise and take advantage of our outstanding range of facilities. George Sautelle House currently offers:
- daily wellness/exercise sessions

- secure garden areas with shared garden beds for residents to tend
