We are an 82 bed facility which includes a 14 bed dementia specific wing, located in Ganya Cottage. All rooms are single bed rooms with an ensuite. We encourage consumers to furnish their room with personal items to help provide a familiar and homely atmosphere.
There are multiple lounge areas available to you, as well as access to dining, laundry, hairdressing services, activities and personal care services. We also have some lovely outdoor areas for you to enjoy, surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens.
Cowra Retirement Village offers both Respite and Permanent Residential Care. You need to be assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) to be eligible for both types of care. If you have not already been assessed for care in an aged care home, including respite care, you (or your nominated representative) need to call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 or visit the My Aged Care Website for more information. My Aged Care staff will ask you questions about your current needs and circumstances so they can refer you for an assessment.
Residential Respite Care
You can access residential respite care for up to 63 days per financial year at a reduced rate, subsidised by the Australian Government.
Respite Care is short-term care available to you if your carer(s) are unable to care for you at home for a short period, or they would like a break from caring for you. We can take care of you so you can rest and/or recover as well as your carer having the opportunity for some rest or a holiday too.
Residential Permanent Care
If you are unable to care for yourself or be cared for at home, Cowra Retirement Village offers long-term permanent care. We can help take the burdens of everyday living away so you can relax and rest.
We aim to provide a comfortable and safe environment for you to call home.
