GraniteHill Ageing Well

GraniteHill
Ageing Well

GraniteHill is dedicated to providing the best available care in a modern, environmentally sustainable, and comfortable local setting.

Light filled and welcoming, GraniteHill feels more like a hotel than an aged care facility and includes a range of dedicated resident services all aimed at making residents and visitors feel at home.  The contemporary yet inviting interior design includes large format artwork of birdlife and scenes from around the district and cosy clusters of lounge style furniture.

We want our community elders to feel at home and be able to remain close to family, located in a place they know and love.

“GraniteHill is committed to making a difference in peoples lives, supporting them to live and age well in Euroa, maintaining their independence wherever possible and contributing to their quality of life.”

Mr. Jim Perry Chair of Board.

At GraniteHill we are dedicated to:

  • Looking after our present generation of elders
  • Actively planning for the care needs of our future generations
  • Promoting community participation and social cohesion and wellbeing
  • Demonstrating leadership in contemporary aged care

We focus on ensuring our residents stay connected with the community, bringing events here to GraniteHill and by taking our residents into the community for special events.   We encourage family participation and input into our lifestyle program so as to become part of the extended GraniteHill family.
