Residential care

Care as individual as you are

Cooinda is Benalla largest provider of residential aged care.  Our 82 bed residential care permanent accommodation is designed to suit a range of care needs as individual as you.

We recognise each person as an individual.  By listening to your choices, we plan and deliver a holistic care plan.  This ensures you enjoy social, emotional and personal wellbeing while at Cooinda.

We understand when moving into residential care you may feel a loss of independence.  To help with this, we encourage families to decorate your room with favourite and familiar items.  By doing this, you will feel more at home in your new surroundings.

We have traditional or modern, contemporary rooms.  Each features its own ensuite and garden views.  Our recently opened 13 bed Memory Support Wing was designed in consultation with Dementia Australia.  As a result, it offers a warm, friendly, homely atmosphere. Furthermore, it has the most up to date care facilities and services. Find out about our rewarding care services, including dementia specific care here.

Flu Season 2019 Update

Another influenza season is coming upon us.   Now is the time the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services recommends to have your ‘flu  shot’ to safe guard yourself and those around you.  The very young and older people are particularly at risk of serious medical complications if they contract the flu.  If you are unwell or suspect you are becoming unwell, please consider postponing your visit for everyone’s wellbeing.

  1. It is important for whole groups and families to be immunised, as this creates what is termed ‘herd immunity’. As well as residents, staff and volunteers being immunised, visitors coming into aged care communities are also encouraged to be vaccinated, including children – this immunisation reduces the risk of community outbreaks.
  2. During May 98% of Cooinda’s residents and almost 90% of staff exercised their choice to be immunised against the ‘Flu in preparation for the flu peak season being in August / September.
