Craigdarroch Care Home is a cozy character home turned 16-suite residence, neighbouring Victoria’s iconic Craigdarroch Castle.
Just steps from the capital city’s renowned castle and distinguished Government House, Craigdarroch Care Home was refurbished with high-end finishes to emulate its esteemed neighbours and historic neighbourhood. Landscaped with gardens and a picturesque gazebo, this home offers private suites with ensuites to comfortably accommodate complex care residents.
“The care my Dad received at Craigdarroch Care Home was top notch. The staff are kind, compassionate and totally dedicated to the Residents. It’s a well run home with a family like atmosphere, providing comfort and attentive service. It’s truly a special place.”
