Goodwood Villas Inverell, NSW

Architecturally designed, Goodwood villas provide such features as a flat floor plan, wider doors, accessible cupboards and bathrooms designed with handrails and space to allow carers to shower residents with ease. These features are unobtrusive to the able-bodied resident on entry.

All of the Goodwood Villas are 2-bedroom and some have additional bedrooms, studies, storerooms and back verandas to accommodate individual choice. Friends and relatives are encouraged to visit and stay for vacations. If you are having a large event, McLean Care® also has a self-contained next of kin unit for additional family members.

The villas are particularly attractive to retirees who have lived on properties as they have a sense of space and a long-distance rural outlook provides the individual with a sensation of freedom.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can stay in your home, usually as long as you can cope with it and can look after yourself, provided you qualify for occupancy under state laws and the terms of the Estate Contract. It can sometimes be a problem if the Estate contract is in the name of the deceased resident only. For better protection, the Estate contract should always be in joint names.
