Independent Living Units

Residents of the units can access all community care services according to their individual needs. This includes council HACC services, meals on wheels and district nursing (John Curtin does not provide these). All residents are encouraged to participate, according to personal choice, in a wide range of social or recreational activities within the Home or the community. John Curtin provides maintenance, security, waste disposal and general landscaping.
