Aubrey Downer Memorial Orange Home is a friendly, family-oriented home located on a quiet suburban street in the West Gosford suburb of Point Clare. Set on over eight hectares of lush gardens and spacious lawns, we offer single rooms with ensuites in the Alcheringa Lodge, as well as our separate and secure dementia unit Jeffress Lodge, which offers a beautiful dementia-specific garden for residents to enjoy.

At Aubrey Downer we run a monthly activity program with activities such as arts, crafts and games, exercise groups as well as movie and theme days. We have a number of volunteers supporting our home and have regular musical performances, fetes, raffles and visits from school and community groups. Aubrey Downer is also home to a vibrant multicultural community. We respect all cultures and religions and celebrate special occasions such as Birthdays, religious occasions and special days such as Mother’s Day.
