Barrington Lodge Aged Care Centre offers an inclusive and supportive lifestyle in a community setting. Built in 1850, the Lodge is rich in history while offering a cosy, comfortable home with tranquil courtyards and gardens and is surrounded by mountain and suburban views. The Centre is single-story enabling straightforward access to all parts of the Centre. Our heritage-listed building boasts rooms with large windows, high ceilings and sky lights allowing in plenty of natural light. The Centre is conveniently located with access to public transport and is only 2 minutes’ drive to the New Town Plaza and local services.

We work closely with the local community and over time have built a reputation as an organisation that genuinely cares for others in need, without discrimination.

We take fun quite seriously! The Centre has a dedicated Lifestyle Team that organises daily activities based on the suggestions of residents through regular resident meetings. These include concerts, shopping trips, visiting entertainers, gardening, movies and many more. Regular and personalised exercise programs are also arranged in conjunction with our Lifestyle Team, such as physiotherapy four times a week. We also have a hairdresser who visits us weekly in our onsite salon and centre bus for our residents to use.

For those who wish to enjoy some quiet time, there are private spots in the gardens, library and lounge rooms to relax in, as well as a recreational room for individual activities. We have close connections with the local schools and volunteer groups, keeping our residents engaged and active within the community. 

Scheduled visits from the local GP and other Allied Health services as needed, including podiatrist, speech therapist, occupational therapist, optometrist and audiologist.

We have a holistic model of care. The Centre Chaplains play an important role in bringing this to life. Whatever your beliefs, our Chaplains are here to assist in your spiritual and emotional journey, if you wish - because we don't have clients, only family.
