Dementia Care on the North Shore
The North Shore of Sydney features some of Sydney’s most prestigious schools and intimate community villages. Bordered by three national parks, Garigal National Park, Lane Cove National Park and Kur-ring-gai Chase National Park. These neighbourhoods are a leafy home for many professionals, families and retired people who love being in easy reach of the business and shopping hubs and with close access to the Northern Beaches of Sydney.
The Group Homes Australia model is firmly built on the belief that people can thrive in a home environment. Traditional and beautiful homes, on traditional suburban streets around Australia, where 6 to 10 residents live together. Residents have 24-hour support including dementia care, palliative and respite care, which is provided by a team of care staff that we call Homemakers.

“This is one of the best models of dementia care in an assisted environment that I’ve seen”

The group home environment
Our group homes have 6-10 residents with 24/7 dedicated care.
Our innovative model of care is 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.
Our Homemakers and Support Team work with each resident and their family to ensure their unique needs are met.
Complex Care Needs
We have various levels of care to accommodate the entire ageing and dementia journey.
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 aged care facilities.
Superior Health Outcomes
Research shows that health outcomes in smaller environments are superior to traditional nursing homes.
Feels Like Home
Our homes are warm and open with the familiar atmosphere of a traditional home.
