Residential Aged Care

At Beechworth Health Service we take the time to understand what is important to every resident. We work with you and your family to plan care and services that meet your individual needs.

The Acacias & Stringybark Lodge

The Acacias and Stringybark Lodge provide residential aged care for 60 residents. Facilities are modern, comfortable and safe with large bedrooms, ensuite bathrooms and large windows.

Indoors, residents can spend time in the shared lounges, sitting and dining room, or enjoy the privacy of their own room.

For some fresh air and sunshine, residents can choose between courtyards and the surrounding beautiful gardens which are tended to by a full time gardener.

BHS is fully accredited to provide all levels of residential aged care (low to high care needs), as well as end-of-life (palliative) care.

If you have questions or would like to arrange a tour of our facility, please contact us for an appointment by calling 03 5728 0200.

  • Respite Care

    Respite care (or short term care), is available for people with high or low care needs who have been approved for respite care by the Aged Care Assessment Service who provide your Aged Care Client Record (ACCR)/ Support Plan.

    Respite is sometimes available at short notice, however, we advise you to book in advance wherever possible.

  • Entering Aged Care

    If you are considering BHS as a residential care option for either yourself or a family member you are welcome to make an appointment for a tour.

    Entry into residential and respite aged care is in accordance with the requirements of the Australian Government. 

    The first step is to complete an eligibility assessment with the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS). This will specify the type of care approved and assist us to understand how we can best support your care needs.  

    If you or your family member has not yet been assessed please contact My Aged Care: 1800 200 422 or visit the My Aged Care website. If you need some assistance, please get in contact and our staff will assist with this process.

  • Aged Care Rights

    People receiving aged care have the same legal rights as all Australians. When you start receiving aged care, you retain the same rights as everyone else in the community.

    The Charter of Aged Care Rights describes your rights as a resident of Stringybark Lodge or The Acacias, which are both Australian Government funded aged care services.
