Goodhew Gardens offers low care assisted living options, as well as dementia-specific care and ageing in place within the lovely confines of Anglicare's Woolooware Shores, overlooking beautiful Woolooware Bay in the Sutherland Shire.

We're committed to providing our residents with continuing care, often on the same site as our independent living accommodation, and that's the case here at Goodhew Gardens.

Residents enjoy a range of services provided in spacious single rooms with private en suites. Assistance is available for showering, dressing, medication supervision, nursing care and personal care needs, indeed staff are there 24 hours a day. All laundry services and meals, including specific dietary requirements are taken care of and emergency call buttons are provided in every room and bathroom.

At Goodhew Gardens, we provide care for those with low levels of dementia-like behaviours, and those with more advanced dementias are catered for with our secure dementia-specific facilities in a supportive and caring environment.

Residents can enjoy a wide range of activities at Goodhew Gardens. There's a dedicated diversional therapist who organises much of the fun, with lots of things to do including exercise classes, fellowship groups, art and craft sessions and much more. There are regular Church services at Goodhew Gardens as well as a hairdresser and cafe. The spectacular location provides a delightful setting for a family visit, a barbecue or a walk in the landscaped gardens.

To be eligible for accommodation, all potential residents must be assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) and be deemed to be in need of assisted living care.

About Residential Aged Care

In the past, a distinction was drawn between aged care homes that offered "high level care" (which were commonly known as "nursing homes") and those that offered "low level care" (which were commonly known as "hostels"). From 1 July 2014 this distinction has ceased to apply in relation to permanent residential aged care, although it does continue to apply in relation to temporary respite care. Aged care homes can incorporate "extra service", which provides a higher standard of accommodation and services (such as meals) for an additional fee. Aged care homes that are not accredited, but which offer similar care and services, may be referred to as "Supported Living". See our Terminology page for detailed explanations of terms that relate to aged care, home care and retirement villages.
