Overlooking the Derwent River and situated on the scenic shores of Lindisfarne Bay, Freemasons’ Homes of Southern Tasmania offers residential aged care in an ultra modern facility accommodating 171 residents, and provides for independent living in 49 individual units.
Masonic Care Tasmania (formerly Freemasons’ Homes of Southern Tasmania Inc) commenced operation in 1951 with the construction of its first ‘cottage’ for the aged and invalid. Since that time the organisation has grown to become the largest aged care provider on Hobart’s Eastern Shore.
Aged Care Accommodation
Our professional staff provide the highest quality level of care in a compassionate and respectful environment.
Freemasons’ Homes comprises 171 single rooms with mostly private ensuite facilities, catering for all levels of care including a secure dementia unit, and three respite placements for temporary residents.
Our very lively activities programme has been designed to both entertain and stimulate. Activities include visits from musicians and schools, bingo, men’s group, church services, choir and gentle movement activities. Our residents also enjoy coordinated outings such as walking groups, bus excursions and luncheons.
Our units provide a safe, secure and relaxed environment, enabling tenants to enjoy their independence among the company of others who wish to experience the benefits of a “retirement village” lifestyle.
A total of 49 Independent Living Units are located either adjacent to the Freemasons’ Homes complex or within a gentle stroll to Lindisfarne village which boasts both recreational and service facilities.
Freemasons’ Homes is currently planning the construction of 12 new two and three-bedroom units on the former Bowditch Hostel site in Wellington Rd, Lindisfarne. The Bowditch site commands magnificent views across Lindisfarne Bay to the Tasman Bridge and Mount Wellington and is a gentle 400m stroll from the Lindisfarne village.
