The Northern Rivers NSW

renowned for its healthy lifestyle

A home, not an aged care facility

An aged care home where you are proud to have your parents live and where you
are proud to visit.


With a maximum of just five residents, Mitchelton - the name of our characterful
Queenslander near Byron Bay - feels like home because it is a home.


A far North Coast sanctuary with private light-filled rooms, subtropical valley views
and ensuites.

One carer to three residents

With a ratio of one carer to three residents, your loved one will experience
personalised care at its best from a small experienced team they know and trust.

The best of Europe in Australia

Tried and tested in Europe for decades, yet almost unique to Australia, this
boutique shared care-home at Coorabell near Byron Bay, has just four bedrooms.
That’s why we can truly call this aged care reimagined.


It’s a place where seniors want to be. Where you’ll never see a uniform, a stainless
steel trolley or vinyl floor. Just a beautiful Queenslander with stunning valley views
and permanent live-in support from a small team, providing the highest quality
personalised care.
