We are a not-for-profit aged care provider with a reputation we are proud of.  This is made possible by our commitment to continuously improving all aspects of the care services we provide – to meet individual’s needs.

At the heart of our organisation is a belief that our residents have come to us from their families, friends and homes seeking the care, comfort and security that’s essential for their changing needs. We pledge to make them feel “at home” in all possible ways.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Meath Care (Inc) acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. Our retirement villages and care centres are built upon Whadjuk Noongar Boodjar and we pay respect to the Noongar people and their Elders, past, present and future; and also extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.

Testimonials

To Christine and the staff at the Como Retirement Village, a most heartfelt thank you.

The past 12+ months, since moving into the village have been some of my happiest.

As a resident, I cannot fault the facility as it is beautiful, clean, with leafy premises and I have been blown away by the facilities on offer in the brand new clubhouse, almost spending all of last summer in the pool.

I am incredibly grateful to Christine, as the manager, for the care and the conversations we’ve enjoyed on a personal level as well as discussing my time so far at the village and how much I love my own place.

The disposition of all the staff is extremely pleasant and nothing is too much to ask, everything is done quickly and without issue.

The other residents are the most delightful people and we’ve enjoyed the best talks and laughs.

Friends have commented on how much I seem to be enjoying life since my move and I believe it is the best decision I have ever made.

Please pass my thanks to all the staff, from Olive Wright, CEO, Christine Busby, Manager, through to Les, the gardener Daniel and John in Maintenance and everyone in between.

Kind regards

REJB
