22 Marshall Street, Farrer ACT 2607

Set amongst beautiful landscaped gardens, George Sautelle House is an oasis of tranquility nestled in the quiet, leafy suburb of Farrer.

George Sautelle House is currently under construction and will be ready to open doors to residents by mid 2021. If you would like to add your name to the register of interest, please contact us.

The new George Sautelle House will be equipped with state-of-the-art technologies for the highest clinical care, including support for dementia and palliative care.

Our level of care takes into consideration your overall wellbeing, with services that help you achieve the best quality of life. Our approach is person-centred care, meaning we treat you as a whole person, including mental and emotional wellbeing, not just a “diagnosis”.
We have a geriatrician working closely with our own Aged Care Specialist Nurse Practitioner, and who together lead regular Registered Nurse clinics with residents to ensure one-to-one attention around their health and wellbeing needs.
This means that you can be assured of the highest quality clinical care available. You will have carers you are familiar with and who know you as well as dedicated activities officers to ensure a quality lifestyle.

All of our facilities give you the opportunity to balance privacy within your beautifully appointed room, with opportunities to socialise and take advantage of our outstanding range of facilities. George Sautelle House currently offers:

• daily wellness/exercise sessions
• a team of activities officers for regular games, outings and events
• secure garden areas with shared garden beds for residents to tend
• private family dining areas
• resident-run cafe
• geriatric assessment and review
• allied health assessment and review
• regular one-to-one Registered Nurse clinics
• Aged Care Specialist Nurse Practitioner
• specialist dementia care in purpose-designed enabling environments
• leisure and lifestyle program underpinned by Montessori method dementia care
• onsite religious services and pastoral care.

Residents also enjoy comfortable, light-filled lounge and dining areas, plus quiet sitting spaces, secure garden areas with bird aviary and courtyard gardens that residents participate in planting.

We understand that food is another important enjoyment in life. Our quality, home style food is cooked fresh on site daily and includes five or more courses a day with rotating seasonal menus designed with our hotel services experts and dietician.

A significant number of beds across Goodwin facilities are reserved for people with low means.
Goodwin is a community-based, not-for-profit organisation operating since the 1950s.

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.
