The Alexander is a modern, purpose-built ageing in place facility situated in Clayton. We are a small boutique family run and owned facility and are accredited by the Department of Health and licensed to care for 90 permanent residents.
We also offer a respite program. This wonderful service is provided as we understand caring for someone on a full time basis can be both physically and emotionally demanding. Our respite program enables families and friends who care for a loved one, to take that long awaited holiday or break, confident that the best of care is being provided during their absence.
The Alexander is warm and comfortable and is complimented by pleasant gardens and courtyards which create a relaxing outdoor environment. The Alexander has central heating & common areas are air conditioned. The majority of our suites are single with an ensuite, we also offer couples accommodation in our new state of the art suites.

There are four common dining rooms, three common lounge/sitting rooms, two activity rooms and a library. A private dining room is also available for our residents and families use.
Residents are offered a home-like environment. They may choose to participate in activities provided, read or relax in our library or retire to their room. The individual needs of each resident is catered for by our caring staff.
