New Entry Point to the Home


As of Monday the 19th of February 2024, our entry point to the Home will be through the sliding gate underneath the pergola on Allan Street.

Visitors are required to attend to a Rapid Antigen Test upon entry to the Home. RATs are provided and are on the table outside the entry door. Once your RAT has been attended to, please utilise the Intercom and speak to a member of our staff who will then open the door for you via a code on our phones.

Once you are inside the front foyer, please take your temperature, sign in and show the staff member your RAT.

We thank you for your cooperation during this transition of changing entry points, as we can understand it can be confusing.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to speak to a staff member to seek clarification.

My Aged Care Overall Star Rating

We are very proud to announced that we have an Overall Star Rating of 4 out of 5! ⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Australian Government assesses the quality of care at all government-funded aged care homes. Based on these assessments, each home receives a Star Rating as a simple way of showing information about the quality of care they provide and how they compare to others.
Star Ratings were introduced in December 2022. Aged care homes receive a rating between 1 and 5 stars to indicate the quality of care across 4 key areas of performance. Outcomes in these 4 subcategories inform an overall Star Rating – Compliance, Quality Measures, Residents’ Experience, and Staffing.
We are incredibly proud of everything we have achieved at The Willochra Home to make it the great HOME that it is today! ⭐😊⭐😊⭐😊
