With more than 70 years of experience in aged care in Warrnambool and South-West Victoria, Lyndoch Living offers a tailored approach to retirement living through its in-home services and residential aged care facilities.


From disability services, respite care and rehabilitation services, to social programs and training, Lyndoch Living provides innovative ways to constantly improve the way we care for our customers living within one of our six homes and services to the broader community.

Risk Appetite

Lyndoch Living has low appetite for the threats to quality of care, safety and well-being for residents, clients and staff. It also has low tolerance of risk in terms of financial sustainability but will embrace commercial, innovation and community engagement opportunities that are consistent with fulfilling its vision and mission.

For the community

As a not-for-profit independent organisation Lyndoch Living has been shaped by our direct links with the community.  Historically, we can show that our growth as an organisation coincides with the requirements and expectations of the community we serve – the great South West of Victoria.
