HomeAged Care Homes – Lynch’s Bridge

Doutta Galla Lynch’s Bridge

Residential Aged Care

Surrounded by grand old peppercorn trees Doutta Galla Lynch’s Bridge aged care residence has a peaceful setting in the heart of historic Kensington.

Built on the former stockyards and retaining its period façade, Lynch’s Bridge is home to a warm community where everyone looks out for each other. Every bedroom has a garden view and a spacious ensuite bathroom. Residents share two large leafy courtyards with bright lounge rooms.

A daily Lifestyle Program brings people together for exercise, music, art and other activities to nurture skills and foster friendships. We welcome friends and relatives to join in for events, outings and meals.

Many residents have lived in the area for a long time and maintain strong connections with the local community. From culturally diverse backgrounds, they speak many languages and share their rich cultural traditions with all of us.

Our residents continue to enjoy their normal social activities at the local RSL, the swimming pool, bowling club and senior citizens club which are all a short walk away.

Understanding how aged care pricing works can be confusing. In simple terms the Commonwealth Government determines all care fees both the basic daily fee and they manage the means testing process.

The basic daily care fee is paid by every resident and covers living costs of personal care, some group activities, meals, cleaning, laundry, heating and cooling. The fee is set at 85% of the full single aged pension.

The home sets the price of the room based on the size, style and amenities provided. Residents can choose to pay a lump sum known as a RAD or daily, known as DAP. See our pricing examples below based on the room types we have and using the daily accommodation payment (DAP) option.

Single room (14.2m2) with ensuite

Rooms priced between $0 (fully government subsidised) and $114.25 per day, depending on your individual income and assets.
