Adventist Aged Care’s Mission & Vision
Adventist Aged Care have been caring for the Aged since 1960, in a Christian environment with Love and Dignity. Our services have expanded and improved to meet today’s expectations of care delivery. We have moved well beyond the concept of caring for frail people of advanced age, to providing a wide range of accommodation and care.
The Staff of the Adventist Aged Care are a group of professionals dedicated to the compassionate care of the residents and their families regardless of race, culture or creed.
