Caring, Supportive, Community-Based Aged Care Services
Sale Elderly Citizens Village is a locally managed, community-based, not-for-profit organisation with over 45 years of experience in providing quality aged care services and accommodation to the elderly in our community. Our organisation was founded in the 1970’s by local Philanthropists, the Catholic Church and Sale Rotary Club.
We pride ourselves on creating a micro community within the facility, empowering our residents to lead their lives as fully as their interests and capabilities permit. There are many opportunities for our residents to connect with one another and enjoy their time together, in a supportive environment with a minimum of rules and regulations. Concessional residents are encouraged to apply for services with no preference for residents of high or low means of finance.
Our facility is home to more than 175 residents, with 88 independent living units and 75 beds in our residential wards, including 15 beds in our specialist dementia wing.
Our organisation is an incorporated association, governed by a Board of Management made up of committed community volunteers. Daily operations are managed by our CEO and management staff.
We are responsive to the community’s aging population in providing safe and affordable housing and accommodation – we ensure that resident dignity and choice is the focus of everything we do.
To be the local service provider of choice for residential aged care and accommodation in seniors living, including the leading residential memory support service provider in Gippsland.
We understand that different people have different needs. That’s why the Sale Elderly Citizens Village offers two types of accommodation, self-care and full care. This combination supports our residents to live their best life in the way that works for them.
Our Ashleigh House Residential Facility houses residents who are seeking a higher level of daily support.
