St Andrews Lutheran Aged Care

We are located in a semi-rural setting in the Tallebudgera Valley on the Gold Coast. Our setting high on a hill means our residents enjoy expansive views of the hinterland and spectacular Mt Warning. Major shopping precincts, pristine beaches and tourist attractions are close by and accessible via our resident bus. We are a one-stop village with all amenities and modern day conveniences on hand. We enjoy well-established links to the wider community ensuring our residents’ needs are met on a holistic level. 
 
“We are blessed here at St Andrews with well-planned, comfortable accommodation set in beautiful natural surroundings. With a reputation for fine care and service delivered by our wonderful staff, we have the bases well covered.”

St Andrews Lutheran Aged Care Manager Lisa Thorne

“I like to walk around the complex enjoying the nice view, and I can also see the school and watch the children play. It’s wonderful to go to all of the functions St Andrew’s provides for us”

St Andrew's resident Margaret Cornwall

 

We offer a range of living options including residential aged care (low care, high care and secure dementia accommodation) plus a co-located retirement village which enjoys a true sense of community and friendship. We also have 10 two-bedroom retirement units and 14 one-bedroom units. All available units are recently renovated and some enjoy stunning views overlooking the valley, hills and flourishing gardens. Our service is set up to support residents as their health and support needs change. We offer specialised dementia support with capable, caring staff. Our qualified staff are enhanced by a dedicated team of volunteers who offer residents friendship and support and assist in leading special interest groups. In addition, we have an onsite Chaplain available on request to help meet residents’ emotional and spiritual needs.

“It was just like coming home. We do everything we want. It’s lovely and peaceful and the outlook from the place is wonderful.”

St Andrew's residents Noel and Irene Henseleit

 

We live by the philosophy of being an extended family to residents and our friendly staff. We provide a warm atmosphere and a welcoming environment. Laughter is actively encouraged with clown doctors on site. St Andrew’s Lutheran College is next door and residents enjoy visits and performances by the pre-schoolers and students. St Andrew’s is also home to our cats Neil and Mishka which provide the companionship of animals to residents.

 

“My children were right! St Andrew’s is a wonderful place to live and I would recommend anyone who is thinking of an independent living facility to come and have a good look at St Andrew’s.”

St Andrew's resident Mary McLindin
