LYNDEN NURSING HOME (High Care) is set amid beautiful secure garden areas and all windows look out onto either courtyards or trees and grass.
Lynden consists of 30 beds with mostly twin and some single room accommodation. Each bedroom has an en-suite which is shared by one other bedroom. We offer a secure environment with code pads to all exit doors and secured gates to the garden areas. A kitchenette is available for use by family/friends.
By late 2017 this wing will have been demolished and replaced by the Leigh wing with 27 single high care rooms with shared ensuites.
GAFFNEY HOSTEL (Low Care) is surrounded by attractive garden areas, some of which are accessible for the residents to enjoy. The Low Care wing is on one level and comprises 30 single rooms all with a private en-suite. There is a well presented dining area and large lounge areas, with a number of smaller sitting areas within the facility. Each wing of the Hostel has a kitchenette equipped with facilities for making tea or coffee for use by residents and their guests. There is also a laundry for those who choose to manage some or all of their laundry.
Residents living in Gaffney Hostel may be required to transfer to Leigh or Kennedy high care if their care needs are not able to be met in the Hostel.
