Care Services

Medical Care

The Vincentian’s medical care for rest home and hospital residents is of paramount importance to us and we have an excellent reputation for personal quality of care.

Both the rest home and hospital are staffed 24 hours a day by a dedicated team of registered nurses and experienced caregivers. Our registered nurses have a special interest in aged-care nursing. All caregivers are required to have, or are in the process of completing the National Certificate in Support of the Older Person. Our staff at the Vincentian are dedicated to individually ensuring attention and care to the personal needs of each one of our residents.

We have a contracted Physiotherapist and a General Practitioner who visits weekly. The General Practitioner provides 24 hour, on-call medical cover. These services are free to all of our residents.

If you wish to continue using your current doctor, you will need to organise this personally with your practice. These visits will incur a fee which will be paid by yourself.

We also have a visiting Podiatrist who charges a small fee for podiatry services, unless it is prescribed for by a medical practitioner as a part of your overall treatment plan.
