Doing Dementia Differently

Lives that flourish with meaning & purpose

Residents who choose our care live in one of our homes.
 Our homes are nestled into local neighbourhoods. Just like your home.

We cherish your life story

The GHA home


Our homes have 6-10 residents with 24/7 dedicated care.

We have been setting a new standard of care and lifestyle in Australia since 2012, with our innovative model providing an alternative to traditional aged care facilities. Smaller care environments have been proven to increase quality of life, reduce rates of depression and reduce hospitalisation for people living with dementia, making ours some of the best dementia care facilities in Sydney.

Tailored Routines

Unlike residential aged care facilities, we don’t have rigid schedules. Residents wake up in their own time, set their own meal times and have visitors when they want.

Higher Care Ratio

We offer a high care ratio of an average 1:4 team members per resident which is better than most traditional dementia specific aged care facilities.

Resident stories and testimonials

"I was blessed to find GHA for my dad after such despair and disappointment in an aged care facility that just didn’t deliver. With GHA, dad was treated with respect and received the highest level of care at the time of his greatest need. I cannot recommend them more highly."

"My mother was fortunate enough to end her days in one of GHA’s homes. My sister looked for suitable dementia accommodation everywhere for our mum and came across Group Homes. The whole experience, for mum and for us, was so unbelievably good. This is a great model for all aged care. My mum passed in the home, listening to her favourite person (Andre Rieu) with one of her favourite carers. Cannot recommend them highly enough."

"I am writing to express my sincere appreciation and acknowledgement of the fine team Group Homes has at their Irrubel home. From the preliminary assessments to our arrival at the home, we were immediately put at ease, quickly appreciating the amenities of the home, its warmth and charm obvious to all. In what is a challenging and constantly demanding environment we saw only smiles, constant positivism, continual engagement and genuine empathy coming from the team. The daily WA photos were a tremendous help and my family still looks at them to show other family and friends how happy our loved one was at Irrubel. We will have no hesitation in requesting respite/care for her in the future with Group Homes and would happily recommend you and your team to anyone."

"You have all made this journey so much easier and more comforting. It has reassured me that I made the best decision for my mum, and there was no better and safer place for her. I cannot thank you all enough for all the hard work you all do."

"I can only comment on my mum's experience. The staff care was fantastic - for mum and communication between us was outstanding. So often food is one element of their lives that can give consistent pleasure if it is good. And the food was fresh, varied and delicious."

"If you knew how much research I did to find the right option for my mother… finding Tamar and GHA – it was like finding a gold nugget. There was a moment when I realised, I just couldn’t do it anymore. Working while trying to care for my mother was taking its toll. When I found GHA the relief was overwhelming. I’m in awe of everything that Tamar and Group Homes Australia have done for my mum. Tamar, the Homemakers and the other GHA families have become family to my mother, and to me. I can now see her and spend time with her, knowing how well she is looked after in between my visits. This is the model of care that Australia needs."

"We love the Group Homes model and we truly value the level of care and engagement the Homemakers have with our loved one and all the other residents at Carrington. Our mum has flourished in her time at Carrington and while we acknowledge dementia is a life-limiting condition, she is currently ‘living her best life’ where she is valued for what she brings to the home (her caring personality, her willingness to help with daily chores etc) and is able to go on outings to various locations that she enjoyed in the area she grew up in (eastern suburbs beaches, Centennial Park). We regularly sing the praises of GHA but note the cost is a factor that means not everyone is able to access such high-quality care. Thank you for caring for our beautiful mum."
