Located in one of North Eastern New South Wales’ most picturesque cities, the 84-bed home overlooks the Clarence River and rural and town landscapes. During the Spring months of each year, the town is blanketed in stunning purple flowers when the Jacaranda trees bloom, drawing both national and international visitors to this proud country town.
There are six main accommodation wings featuring a mix of single rooms and companion rooms, which enable residents to maintain social connections more easily. The 14-bed West Wing has a dedicated palliative care room. There is also the option for family members to stay overnight if they wish.
We encourage residents to socialise in the home's common areas, with lounge and dining rooms throughout the complex. Family members & friends are welcome to visit any time, and can spend time in the home's peaceful gardens or take in the stunning views of the river from the verandah.
Staying active and socialising is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. At Grafton, 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 & community groups. Grafton is also home to a vibrant multicultural community. We respect all cultures and religions and celebrate special occasions such as birthdays, religious events and special days such as Mother's Day.
It's our priority to ensure that you feel safe, secure and at home. For your peace of mind, we provide 24-hour care by Registered Nurses who are supported by a dedicated team of Personal Carers. Access to our home is by secure keypad entry & exit codes for your safety and peace of mind.
Grafton Aged Care Home is part of the Hall & Prior Health & Aged Care Group: a family owned organisation with a passion for providing quality aged care. Our home is led by an experienced Director of Nursing who works alongside a team of compassionate, dedicated professionals to ensure that you feel well cared for. We pride ourselves on our multicultural approach to care within our community and provide each individual in our care with the support they need to continue enjoying meaningful and happy lives.
Compassionate people, dedicated to care, we have the expertise to assist with complex care requirements, and will always discuss your care requirements with you & your family. Your General Practitioner can visit you at Grafton, or you can choose to have your records transferred to one of our visiting General Practitioners. Visits from other health professionals such as Physiotherapists, Podiatrists, Dentists and Opticians are arranged as required.
Enjoying a variety of delicious, nutritionally balanced meals is not only an important part of maintaining good health, it's an important part of your day. Our kitchen team provides fresh meals that are prepared at our home and served straight to you. We consult with Dietitians and Speech Pathologists to support our residents' clinical care without compromising on taste. We offer a choice of hot and cold meals, cater for clinical dietary requirements, allergies, intolerances and cultural requirements, special requests to mark celebrations and a special menu for a them day each month.
