Aged care in South West Victoria

From its beginnings as a twelve-bed hostel, Lyndoch Living has grown to be the major provider of residential aged care in Warrnambool and extended care services to our community, including respite care and in-home services for Warrnambool and district residents.

Lyndoch Living exceeds expectations by providing a range of care services for high or complex care-need residents with the comfort and security of 24-hour nursing care. Residents are able to enjoy this phase of their life within a caring, homely environment while pursuing their interests and activities is what we like to refer to as ‘the Lyndoch Way’.

Our premises are spread over five unique residences, currently accommodating 198 residents. We strive to modify, as required, the necessary services required for our residents as their needs change, all from the one facility.

We understand that extended family can play a huge role in the selection of a Warrnambool and district aged care options, which is why we encourage the involvement of family, friends and pets in the residents’ choice and care needs.

Our team of volunteers and staff understand that making the transition to residential aged care can be challenging. We go to every length necessary to ensure a smooth and simple transition. Our registered and enrolled nurses, and personal care workers have completed extensive training, with ongoing education and training offered to ensure first class care for residents.

While residents are encouraged to pursue or continue their own hobbies and interests, there is also a wide range of social programs and activities available to all residents at Lyndoch. Regular outings within the community are also available and may include sightseeing, shopping or promoting community links with visits to, or from, local schools.
