Where Everyone is encouraged to live their life the way they want to live it.

A new era in aged care

Where do people who work in aged care choose to put their own parents when they need more care?

This was the problem facing Jo and Grescha.

It is such a hard decision to place a relative into aged care. With our boutique model and small home environment we hope to make this decision so much easier. Somewhere small enough for everyone living there to feel like it is their own home, not a facility. So you won’t see uniforms, stainless steel trolleys or vinyl floors. But you might hear the chickens clucking outside for a feed. Or smell a freshly baked cake coming out of the oven for morning tea.

renowned for its healthy lifestyle

Home comforts

We focus on what you can do, not what you can’t. Plant your favourite veggies in the vegetable patch or grow your favourite flowers. Collect fresh eggs from the chickens for breakfast or spread fresh honey on your toast from the resident bees. You can be as busy as you want to be. There’s always something fun to get involved with.

Living well

Grescha and Jo have experienced first hand what works and what doesn’t work in aged care. They’re passionate about improving the way we take care of our parents.


Our elders have lived such rich lives and we respect what they have achieved. It’s a privilege to welcome them into the Honey Bee family.

Way of life

The Far North Coast is famous for its healthy lifestyle and we use local, seasonal fresh produce. The local community is inclusive and diverse and they share our love of nature and living well.

We’re surrounded by artists, basket makers, weavers and ceramic artists – all of whom are welcome to drop by to share their skills.

Life at Honey Bee Homes


Your mother, father, relative or friend can live in a small, family style boutique home. We see our guests as the person in their own right and not defined by any diagnosis they’ve been given. We offer flexible, personalised care specialising in dementia care.

Privately operated

Honey Bee Homes are privately run. We offer a welcoming environment using non-clinical approaches and individualised care to create a home away from home. There are no set visiting hours, we welcome family and friends to visit when they wish to.
