Residential Care


Aberlea understands that the decision to live in an aged care facility is not an easy one. Aberlea management and staff are committed to providing physical and emotional support to residents and their families, commencing on admission day and continuing on each day following, to ensure residents and families are happy, and all needs are met.

Aberlea recognises that choice is important and puts the individual needs of residents' first.

The Aberlea model of care is delivered through a multidisciplinary team consisting of our Director of Care and Operations, Registered Nurses, Enrolled Nurses, Personal Care Assistants and Lifestyle Officers providing 24-hour quality care. We also work closely with the following services - podiatry, physiotherapy, diabetes consultancy, hearing and vision specialists, dietary services and speech therapy to enable residents to lead an active and rewarding life.

Residents enjoy social and cultural activities, outings, and access to community events. Residents make their choices from daily menus of home cooked meals, served in the dining room or in residents' rooms if preferred.

Family and friends are encouraged to visit and enjoy the spacious living areas and beautiful gardens the facility has to offer.



Aberlea strives to provide accommodation and service of the highest standard for people who value their independence and wish to live with dignity and privacy within a home-like environment.


  • To create a safe and happy environment for residents, staff and management.
  • To create a home-like atmosphere with caring support.
  • To maintain the highest standards possible in all aspects of care.

At Aberlea Inc. Mortlake, we manage a 9-bed dementia specific unit which we call the “The Mews”.

Within this secure unit each resident has their own bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. We encourage residents and families to make these bedrooms their own by furnishing the rooms with as many familiar items as possible from home.
