Review Group Homes Australia Garrick

“This is one of the best models of dementia care in an assisted environment that I’ve seen” Ita Buttrose. At GHA you can be assured that we offer the best quality care available in the North Shore of Sydney, in a warm, friendly and safe environment. We specialise in high care, palliative and respite care and were independently benchmarked by Alzheimer's Australia as best in class in every area of dementia care against over 80 competitors.

The GHA model is the first of its kind in Australia and focuses on creating a non-institutional way of living that emphasises a resident’s abilities rather than their disabilities. Our homes are traditional houses in traditional streets. The homes are an integral part of the community, with a maximum of 10 residents living together in private rooms. Each home has trained staff on site 24/7 and approximately 1 member of staff for every 3 residents. We also have a number of Registered Nurses who work across the homes.

Our caring team members are homemakers, and they support and assist residents with their daily needs and activities. They encourage residents to be engaged in shopping, cooking, gardening… The full range of daily tasks that bring a sense of purpose in a home. We have no call bells or nursing trolleys, no rigid routines around waking, personal care or singalongs. We actively welcome friends and family to come and visit and stay for a cup of tea and sample our latest freshly baked treats. We have homes across Sydney, including in Rose Bay, Vaucluse, Waverley, St Ives and Warriewood. Please get in touch with us to arrange a tour of one of our homes and see the difference for yourself.

Group Homes Australia has four beautiful homes in the St Ives area of Sydney. Group Homes Australia flagship home is at 3 Garrick Rd, St Ives. This custom built, single level, beautiful home features a central hub with open-plan kitchen and fireplace, and numerous outdoor entertaining areas and gardens. There are a multitude of formal and informal living and social spaces, and large bedrooms.

*Please note we operate a separate model for accommodation and care and can structure a tailored arrangement for you.

The home has been built for purpose and creates a wonderful family environment. 10 Patients - all are entertained daily with activities - excellent. food could be better - has improved over time. Medical care is fair but could be better. Patients and families of patients mix well and create a very friendly environment.

Group Homes is a new concept in aged care. Small groups of people in a purpose built home that's not institutional. It celebrates diversity of age and disability. Staff are committed, caring and efficient and there's continuity. Carers are homemakers, residents are encouraged to help if they can. Decor is classy. Atmosphere is 'buzzy' and interactive. Most importantly, my mother is happy and contended and I can sleep at night.
