St Vincent’s Aged Care Gympie

Beautifully landscaped gardens, extensive verandas, and sweeping views of Gympie and the Cooloola Shire countryside make for the wonderful, warm environment where residents can still feel like they’re at home and staff can help them live their happiest and healthiest lives.

St Vincent’s Care Gympie isn’t just a place where staff are family to residents, but where residents are family to staff. They all take an interest in each other’s lives and interests and Gympie’s small size means that staff get to know everyone’s wants and needs.

Come visit us and see what makes St Vincent’s Care Gympie so special.

My aunt was adamant that she was NOT going into an aged care facility. She now looks great! She has companions and enjoys being part of the daily activities. She refers to the facility as “home”. The staff are wonderful. They look after her beautifully and treat us as a family with care and advise us regularly what is going on and anything she needs. I am so glad that we as a family chose St Vincent’s Care.
