About Us

The place to call home

A not for profit and community-based organisation, Donwood Community Aged Care Services is committed to providing a safe, happy and comfortable home for its residents.

Governed by a volunteer Board of Management, Donwood is located in leafy Croydon, Victoria, on land donated by the state government and reserved for a purpose-built, government funded aged care facility.

Starting out as a 30-bed nursing home and Community Day Centre in 1991, in 1998, the facility was further extended to offer 44 low care beds with 14 places memory support (dementia-specific). In 2004, Donwood added to its services with an additional 16 beds to provide the community with a 30-bed, memory support (dementia specific) unit.

Again addressing local needs, in 2008, construction began on six Independent Living Units (ILU), with the first ILU resident welcomed in June 2009.

Today, Donwood continues to support its residents, whose needs vary from low care to full memory support (dementia) services, by providing them with a warm and caring place to call home.
