Resthaven opened a new, purpose-built aged care facility at 24 Elizabeth Street, in the heart of Mount Gambier in July 2011.
Resthaven Mount Gambier offers 96 aged care places, including two respite places, and a 12 place secure dementia unit.
Features include communal entertainment areas, a small on-site shop, hairdresser, a library and regular newsletters. There is always something going on - films, concerts, quizzes - it's your choice to participate or not. Family involvement is encouraged through a variety of volunteer opportunities.
Resthaven provides residential services for people 60 years and over who need assistance with daily living activities. Eligibility for care requires an independent assessment by an Australian Government Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT Assessment). Following assessment approval, Resthaven’s admissions process includes an evaluation to ensure our facilities are appropriate and that accommodation is offered to those applicants with the greatest need. Each person’s circumstances differ and our Accommodation Enquiries team will discuss individual needs and advise the next steps.
