Lakes Entrance Aged Care Residence is located in the lovely Kalimna region of Gippsland Lakes. It is surrounded by picturesque waterways and abundant wildlife & recreation, truly a beautiful and inspiring environment.

Lakes Entrance Aged Care offers a selection of 75 beds comprising 30 high care and 45 low care beds in well-appointed single and shared rooms, perfect for couples wanting to live together with the benefit of 24 hour care. There are several alcoves and courtyards with paved pathways and garden furniture, which allow residents secure areas to sit and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air.

We provide clinical care services that are managed by qualified, registered nurses and well-trained staff. We focus on individualised care, ensuring privacy, dignity, and optimum quality of life for each of our residents. Respite, convalescent and unfunded care services are also available.

Our leisure and lifestyle program provides a variety of enriching experiences such as sing-a-longs, arts, crafts, cooking, discussion groups, and outdoor activities.

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.
