Assisted Living

It has been our experience that the general public’s perception of a nursing home or residential care facility is much worse than the reality. 

To some, entering a residential care facility or nursing home is the last choice they would make and many of our potential residents have been reluctant to do so. Yet, after living in one of our facilities for a period of time so many residents have said “I should have done this years ago”.

Southern Cross Care (Qld) has a primary focus of ensuring that our residents are treated with respect and dignity through all of our staff valuing and respecting human life.

Assisted Living was created in an attempt to overcome the initial fear many residents have of being sent away to an old people’s home.
