A welcoming community designed to feel like home

Vincent Court was built by the Kempsey community on a foundation of Christian values. Here, we believe that feeling at home is important for everyone’s wellbeing. That’s why we support each resident to maintain their interests, familiar routines and connections to the people and places they love. It’s also why our community is divided into smaller households with Carers who feel like trusted friends and outdoor spaces that provide the simple pleasures of a backyard. At Vincent Court, you can live your way while being part of a welcoming and vibrant neighbourhood.

Live your way, with dignity

A culture of caring that puts residents first

Feeling at home is about feeling you belong. At Vincent Court, the physical and emotional wellbeing of residents are our highest priorities. We’ve introduced an award-winning staff culture program that unites our team to work together to put residents first. We listen, respect your choices and support you to live your way.

Creating a true sense of home

To offer a more personal living experience, Vincent Court is divided into seven households where residents share a kitchenette, lounge and dining room. Your light-filled room, complete with its own ensuite, can be furnished and decorated as you like, and you can enjoy the simple pleasures of a traditional backyard, with courtyards, flower beds and veggie patches.

Carers who get to know you well

Our Carers and Nurses focus on you as a person, getting to know your story, likes and routine. On-hand 24/7, they provide a holistic care experience tailored to your needs. With specialist expertise across all aspects of aged care, including infection control, respite, dementia and palliative care, they support each resident with kindness and compassion.

Design your own day

Just like at home, you decide how you’d like to spend your day. When you rise, eat and shower is up to you, and you’re supported to keep doing the things you’ve always enjoyed, like watering the garden, visiting the hairdresser, and continuing your interests. There’s no set visiting hours, so you can welcome friends and family whenever you like.

Built by the community for the community

Vincent Court has been an integral part of the Kempsey community for over four decades and the close ties it has always enjoyed with the Macleay Valley Catholic Parish remain strong. Regardless of faith, residents can choose to attend regular services in our own on-site Chapel or Mass in the Parish Church, and everyone is welcome to receive private pastoral visits.

A friendly country town close to regional centres

Kempsey is loved for its familiar country charm and its easy access to everything this is beautiful part of the Mid North Coast has to offer. Set on the banks of the Macleay River, Kempsey is under an hour’s drive from Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour. It’s surrounded by many picturesque beachside towns like Crescent Head, Hat Head and South West Rocks.

“I’m well and truly looked after here by the best group of Carers, and there’s always someone to share a yarn and a laugh with. I feel very comfortable in such a homely place and I love that I can have input into the lifestyle program.”
Joan, Resident in Azalea Household
"I used to volunteer here and I’m so happy to live here now. I’m part of a beautiful community and I enjoy doing so many things with others. Vincent Court feels like home because I can be who I am and everyone around me feels like friends and family"
Sister Cabrini, Resident
“I think what makes Vincent Court so special is the way we focus on helping each resident continue doing the things they’ve always done. We just make sure they’re safe, comfortable and supported. It’s this approach that makes our community feel like home, and our Carers feel like family.”
Kylie Bonney, Residential Service Manager
“Every older Australian deserves to be cared for as an individual. Our care culture centres on kindness and helping each resident live their best, most joyful life every day – whatever that means to them.”
Kylie Radburn Chief Governance Officer, Apollo Care
