Permanent Care & Retirement Living

The home is made up of sixty-five permanent places, seventeen of which are in our memory support unit. Surrounding the home there are nineteen independent living units.

The Care Team at John Curtin actively supports your right to lifestyle choice and independence by offering residential care and housing options that can be tailored to meet your, or your loved one’s, specific needs and aspirations.

Our experienced staff have qualifications in Certificate III in Aged Care, Enrolled Nursing or Registered Nursing, some with post graduate qualifications. We also have allied health professionals, lifestyle and wellbeing staff, a chef and hospitality staff, maintenance, gardening and administrative staff. We have our own cleaning team, and all laundry, including bed linen, is done in house.

Retirement Village

The Curtin Independent Living Units are a Licence/ Lease Retirement Village. A waiting list applies and units are allocated by position on that list. It is intended to increase the number of units in the future.

I chose to move into John Curtin knowing that I could still enjoy doing all the things that I love in my new home.

You have to be a special person to work in aged care and John Curtin has picked the best.

Beautiful, peaceful, happy and welcoming. I love coming to visit, you never feel like an outsider
