Apsley Riverview Hostel at Walcha is a 31 bed low level care facility nestled in the New England region of northern NSW.
Walcha has a town population of 1800 with 3200 in the district. Demographics show Walcha as having a high aged population which is increasing; in fact Walcha has been statistically named as having one of the highest longevity figures in Australia.
Riverview has always been fortunate to enjoy enormous support from a very generous community which greatly assists in providing a loving, comfortable homelike environment. Along with a band of "couldn't do without" volunteers, 23 enthusiastic staff assist our Manager in providing the residents with many in-house and outdoor activities.
Riverview residents enjoy monthly picnics to local grazing properties. Many of them have family still living on the land or have worked on these properties in their lifetime. They love to reminisce and get back into the countryside which has been a huge part of their lives.
