About Us

At Rose Lodge we are dedicated to providing exceptional care and services to our residents. Our facility offers a range of services to meet the unique needs of each individual.

Our Story

At Rose Lodge, we have been providing high-quality aged care services to the greater Wonthaggi community for over 60 years. Our facility was established in response to a growing need for quality aged care in the area, and we continue to be dedicated to providing exceptional care to our residents.

We understand that each person’s needs are unique, and that’s why we offer personalised care plans that are tailored to meet the individual needs of each resident. Our experienced and qualified staff are available around the clock to provide the care and support needed to ensure our residents feel comfortable and safe in their new home.

Our commitment to quality care is demonstrated by our continuous accreditation under the Aged Care Standards, which are set by the Australian Government. We have not failed a single standard since the establishment of the Aged Care Act in 1997, meaning our residents can trust that they are receiving the highest quality of care available.

In addition to our exceptional care, we offer a range of services and amenities to make life at Rose Lodge as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. From nutritious meals and engaging activities to comfortable living spaces and beautiful gardens, we strive to create a warm and welcoming environment that feels like home.

We invite you to come and see for yourself why Rose Lodge is the preferred choice for aged care in Wonthaggi.
