Our Philosophy

In Portumna Retirement Village, our philosophy is to cater for the individual needs of each resident - an essential aspect of the caring process. We endeavor to match the ideal staff member to each resident, to cater for preferences of male or female, quiet or lively, casual or formal.

Activities of daily living are carried out at the resident's pace, with the emphases on maximising potential and personal control, enabling choice and respect for dignity. By taking the time to get to know each of our residents, we nurture a friendly and happy atmosphere that residents, relatives and staff alike warm to right away.

Residents may come and go, on appropriate risk assessment basis, and visitors are welcome at all times. We consider social relationships with like-minded people to be of the utmost importance and we arrange a wide range of social and recreational activities, both on the premises and outside. By taking the time to get to know each resident, we foster a friendly atmosphere and maximum empowerment of every person under our care.


Our goal is to provide the best care possible to all our residents and work with them and their families to ensure that their stay with us is as enjoyable and comfortable as is practicable
