Goodwin House is one of only a small number of live-in care facilities in the ACT that provides 24-hour onsite staff nurses, seven days a week. We also offer a range of quality clinical care services such as one-to-one nurse clinics led by a geriatrician working closely with our own Aged Care Specialist Nurse Practitioner.
Our approach is person-centred care, meaning we treat you as a whole person, including mental and emotional wellbeing, not just a “diagnosis”.
At Goodwin, quality of life is our mantra.
Choose comfort and lifestyle
The architect-designed Goodwin House offers a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere, thanks to an impressive foyer featuring a large exotic fish tank, grand piano and relaxing lounge.
You have opportunity to balance privacy within your beautifully appointed room, with opportunities to socialise and take advantage of our outstanding range of facilities and garden areas. Our dedicated activities team is there to ensure you have fun, social and stimulating things to do every day – from games, to light fitness and wellness classes, to language lessons, visits from local entertainers and outings on the Goodwin bus.
Choose fresh home-style meals
