The Organisation
Nestled at the foothills of the Dandenongs Ranges, Kirkbrae Presbyterian Homes was established in 1960 and offers a supportive community for older people to live among friends
Kirkbrae is owned and operated by the Presbyterian Church of Victoria, with the residents’ wellbeing at the centre of everything. A simple philosophy guides everything at Kirkbrae – ‘In life, look after people the way you would want to be looked after yourself’
At the heart of the community is an aged care facility with 106 beds. The home is designed with charm and has a homelike atmosphere allowing residents full enjoyment of their social activities, with lounges and dining rooms overlooking tranquil gardens areas. There are 78 retirement units set within parklike surrounds. Easy access to facilities, such as the community hall, is provided by a series of pathways
Like most aged care facilities, Kirkbrae has not been immune to COVID 19. The facility has been impacted greatly. The leadership is steadfastly resetting its high-quality practices.
