Our Mission

Our mission has always been: To create and aged care home and community with residents at the forefront.

We have built our company based on family values. This means promoting feelings of togetherness and belonging in all of our homes, so our residents and team form close-knit communities. We pride ourselves on conducting fearless conversations, treating our residents with the utmost respect, and providing constant training and development for our care teams.

Our philosophy guides us to provide a total care facility within an active community. Your level of care is entirely your choice, from independent living with visiting practitioners and 24 hour emergency call systems through to high care supported living facility onsite, we provide peace of mind for all stages of life.

The difference between CHRV and other retirement destinations is that our village is especially sensitive to the changing needs of our residents. We focus on offering the added services of assisted and higher level care from trained professionals on site.
