Grafton Aged Care Home is new addition to the Hall & Prior Health & Aged Care Group. For more information, call the home's Director of Nursing on 02 6642 3255.
Located in one of North Eastern New South Wales’ most picturesque cities, the 83-bed home overlooks the Clarence River and rural and town landscapes. Towards the end of each year, the town is blanketed in stunning purple flowers when the jacaranda trees bloom, drawing visitors from all across the state.
There are six main accommodation wings featuring a mix of single rooms and companion rooms, which enable residents to maintain social connections more easily. The 14-bed West Wing has a dedicated palliative care room. There is also the option for family members to stay overnight if they wish.
We encourage residents to socialize in the home’s common areas, with lounge and dining rooms throughout the complex. Family members and friends are welcome to visit any time, and can spend time the home’s peaceful gardens, or take in the stunning views of the river from the verandah.
At Grafton we pride ourselves on the excellent care services that we provide to every resident. Our care team is made up of a Director of Nursing, registered nurses, enrolled nurses, personal care staff, lifestyle officers and other support staff who work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure you are well cared for.
We provide palliative care, respite care and dementia support and are more than happy to answer any questions you may have about your care requirements.
In recognition of our very high standards of care and services, Grafton has been fully accredited by the Australian Government meeting all 44 of the expected outcomes.
Our activity programs are designed by our lifestyle officers and physiotherapists to both promote movement and exercise, while others provide entertainment and the opportunity to socialise.
The home is located near the beautiful Clarence River and is only a short drive away from shops, cafes and parks, meaning there are plenty of options for outings. Family and friends are more than welcome to join in with any of our activities.
Your room will be furnished and decorated for you, but we encourage you to bring personal belongings such as photographs and soft furnishings to help you feel at home. There are television sets that you can watch in our common rooms, but you are welcome to bring you own television or radio if you wish.
To maintain good health, it's important to have a diet made up delicious, nutritionally balanced meals. Our cook prepares a wide variety of nutritious, home-cooked meals in our kitchen on site. We offer choices of hot and cold meals, cater for allergies, intolerances and culturally-specific needs, and create a special menu for a theme day each month.

The cost of aged care is dependent on your circumstances and is different for everyone. The cost of your care and accommodation at Grafton can include the following:
Basic daily fee
This covers living costs such as meals, power and laundry. For some people, this is the only fee they are required to pay.
This fee is set by the Department of Human Services at 85% of the single pension and is indexed in March and September each year. To read the latest schedule of fees and charges go to the Department of Health website.
Means-tested care fee
This is an additional contribution towards to the cost of your care that some people are required to pay, and is based on an assessment of your income and assets.
This charge covers your accommodation at Grafton, and is based on an assessment of your income and assets.
You can choose to make your accommodation payments as either:
