  • Providing support and rehabilitation for people recovering from a fall or health issues
  • Providing post hospital recuperation prior to returning home
  • Giving an older person a break from having to care for themselves
  • Giving a relative a break from caring for their relative

    Permanent Accommodation As the name implies this is long term accommodation where a person moves into Caulfield Manor to live on an ongoing basis.

    This usually comes about due to a variety of reasons:
  • The person has had a series of falls or other incidents that have made it too risky to remain at home
  • Their health has deteriorated and they are no longer able to adequately care for themselves at home
  • They have dementia that has advanced to such an extent that they are no longer able to look after themselves
  • They are unable to care for themselves in a general way
  • They are just old and frail and family are worried about them being home alone
  • They are lonely and isolated at home and wish to be with other people on a 24 hr basis

  • "We do not charge any in-going fee or accommodation charges. We just charge weekly invoice in monthly basis."
