Our aged care centres in Wollongong

How do I choose a residential aged care home that is right for me or my loved one?

There are several factors to take into consideration when choosing a residential aged care centre in the Illawarra, including:

  • the level of care required
  • environment
  • facilities and services offered
  • food
  • location
  • community activities.

The best way to make a good decision is to visit several aged care centres around Wollongong to compare them and get a feel for them. Ask the questions that are relevant to your needs, listen carefully to the responses and keenly observe what is happening around you.

You may also wish to consider respite care so that you can experience life at an aged care centre before making a more permanent move.
