Conveniently located on McIvor Highway in Bendigo, Mirridong Aged Care is a 60 place high care residence comprising 50 single rooms with ensuite and 10 shared rooms, ideal for couples or friends wanting to live together. Mirridong offers beautiful feature gardens, paved pathways, and secure verandas allowing residents outside access yet protection from the country elements.

Our beautiful garden outlook brings a feeling of warmth and comfort into the residence. With our friendly care and home-cooked meals, friends and family are welcome any time - to pop in, share a cup of tea or enjoy a meal with family. There are no set visiting hours.

All are welcome to participate in our community and recreational activities. Our leisure and lifestyle programs can be personalised to individual needs and preferences, whether it be going shopping, seeing a movie or having high tea in the Botanical Gardens.

Mirridong even has its own pet called Rupert the dog, as part of it's Pet Therapy program. Rupert can be seen regularly cuddling up to our residents and enjoying quiet walks. He truly brings a sense of wellness and love to our home.

Mirridong is proud to offer dementia care in a secure and supportive environment, and respite, convalescent and unfunded care services are also available.

In early 2014, we are excited to announce that in 2014 Mirridong's new development will be opened, adding brand new premium accommodation of an additional 30 high and low care beds. Please call (03) 5442 4011 to enquire now about this exciting development.

About Residential Aged Care

In the past, a distinction was drawn between aged care homes that offered "high level care" (which were commonly known as "nursing homes") and those that offered "low level care" (which were commonly known as "hostels"). From 1 July 2014 this distinction has ceased to apply in relation to permanent residential aged care, although it does continue to apply in relation to temporary respite care. Aged care homes can incorporate "extra service", which provides a higher standard of accommodation and services (such as meals) for an additional fee. Aged care homes that are not accredited, but which offer similar care and services, may be referred to as "Supported Living". See our Terminology page for detailed explanations of terms that relate to aged care, home care and retirement villages.
