St John’s Park offers a wide choice of leisure and lifestyle activities and pastoral care support to help clients meet their diverse religious, spiritual and pastoral needs. Close links exist with local community organisations, churches and social groups, giving clients access to essential networks outside the home so they can maintain their community associations and friendships.

Multiple lounge and dining areas ensure all residents can get to know each other and develop friendships. Landscaped gardens over the four hectares offer residents a wonderful place for recreation and quiet reflection. There are also raised gardens for residents’ use.

Food and Diet

At Benetas St John's Park we are proud of the delicious, healthy meals we prepare for residents and their guests. Cooks work closely with nutritionists and dieticians to ensure all meals prepared fulfil nutrition requirements. We use fresh produce in all our kitchens and cater to cultural and religious requirements, and aim to please all individual tastes. Benetas St John's Park holds regular ‘food forums’ for residents and kitchen staff to discuss new ideas for the menus.

Staff and volunteers

We encourage our staff and volunteers to bring a pastoral sensibility to their roles, to listen to and be truly present to our residents. Our specialist team of non-denominational Pastoral Care Practitioners provide individualised and ongoing spiritual and emotional support. In addition, through our Lifestyle Program, denominational visitors and volunteer companions foster an ongoing connection with our residents’ chosen faith tradition and provide church and chaplaincy services.

Are you prepared for residential aged care?

To be prepared for the move into a Benetas home plus to determine some of the costs for your care and whether you qualify for additional Government funding, you should apply for the Government's Combined Assets and Income Assessment (valid for 120 days prior to moving in). Benetas welcomes people without this Assessment, as you may choose not to apply but instead pay the full costs for your care needs and accommodation.
