IRT’s Journey of Care is a model that personalises the care experience for every resident.

We recognise that every journey is unique and honour the diversity of each resident’s care needs.

Residents feel valued and understood. They live with residents with similar care needs in a purpose-designed environment, receive compassionate care from trained staff, and experience specialised programs grounded in the latest research that align to their care needs.


We're leaders in person-centred dementia care

Our innovative Journey of Care model enables us to tailor our dementia care environments, equipment and programs to meet the unique needs of residents living with dementia.

Our secure dementia care environments support resident wellbeing and independence. They also encourage community connections and engagement with loved ones.


Personalised palliative care with compassion

Palliative care is a comprehensive approach to care that looks after your loved one’s physical needs while also supporting their emotional wellbeing as they face a life limiting illness.

Our specialised palliative care program is founded on extensive experience in end of life care, offering a holistic approach to the residential aged care experience. Treating residents with dignity and respect, in life and in death, is a given at IRT.

Aged Care Centre Exterior

A neighbourhood to call home

Located in NSW on the northern shores of Wollongong, IRT Tarrawanna Aged Care Centre sits beneath the beautiful Illawarra escarpment while still only being a five-minute drive from the water. Enjoy the best of both worlds with the fresh ocean breeze and views of the escarpment in our community. 

Our centrally located care centre is only a short drive to the town centre for grocery shopping and amenities while a number of medical facilities, including Primary Medical Centre, are less than a four-minute drive away. The bus stop is a short three-minute walk from our door.
