Gordonvale Nursing Home Pyramid Residential Care Centre

Pyramid Residential Care Centre is a custom designed and built facility, offering 52 high care needs beds for residents. Located in Gordonvale, the centre is set amongst 7 acres of lush gardens and manicured lawns, providing each of the rooms and buildings with plenty of open space and fresh air. It’s a feeling of home away from home.

The buildings are designed for wheelchair access, as are the garden pathways. There are various outdoor spaces for the residents to enjoy, including two pergolas, shaded undercover seating, sunny courtyards and garden spaces.

Most of the centre’s interior is air conditioned for resident comfort. There are various buildings, connected by undercover pathways, containing numerous communal social spaces. These include dining areas, a television watching area and recreation hall. We provide our residents with access to a range of facilities. Pyramid Residential Care Centre is a high care facility. We also cater for residents with dementia. Registered nursing staff and care staff are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
