Since its official opening in 1963, ARC-Rossmoyne has been providing residential care for dependent seniors.
The Rossmoyne site was chosen for its central location near the peaceful Canning River and easy access via major transport routes. Today the fully-accredited residential care facility is a popular choice for dependent members of the community who appreciate the caring Adventist Christian character of the support provided.
The ‘homely’ residential care program, incorporating both Sherwin and Freeman Wings with a total of 80 aged care beds, offers a service where elderly men and women receive quality care from trained, and qualified staff. The holistic program receives a physical, social and spiritual emphasis to ensure residents remain as healthy and happy as possible.
Beyond the residents’ private room spaces the home provides a variety of functional and attractive facilities including:
- dining rooms
- activity rooms
- secured gardens areas
- outdoor seating
Services come to the residents in this home. While trained Registered Nurses and carers are always present, other visiting health professionals, including doctors, dentists and podiatrists provide care to residents in the privacy of their own rooms where necessary.
Adjacent to the care facility is the attractive Rossmoyne Adventist Retirement Village from where many of the residents have relocated.
