We have a delightful range of communal areas, dining and activity rooms for you to keep busy in or simply relax. These are designed with tasteful and warm decorations. Our large windows bring in plenty of natural light and are ideal to sit beside to admire the beautifully manicured gardens.
Meanwhile, outdoors we’re surrounded by landscaped gardens with non-slip paths for safe and easy access. Our shaded outdoor area is a great place to enjoy quality time with your friends and family.
When it comes to aged care, we understand that one size doesn’t fit all. That’s why we take the time to get to know you, so we can tailor your care to help support you in the way that you prefer.
You can be confident that we’ll be there for you when you need us with access to a registered nurse 24 hours a day, as well as a CCTV security system and an easy-to-use nurse call system.
At Bupa Portland, we value the experience of passionate registered nurses and carers who are committed to providing the care you need, in the way you want.
Our role isn’t just to care for you when you’re sick but also to help you stay healthy. We have a dedicated doctor’s office onsite which is available and offers easy access to a General Practitioner (GP).

Moving into a care home is a big decision and it’s important to make sure you choose the payment option that suits you best. Your costs may vary according to your financial situation and we advise you to seek independent financial advice before entering an aged care home to help you choose the right payment option for you.
To help ensure that care is affordable for everyone, the Australian Government calculates and regulates maximum daily fees and enforces limits as to how much you can be asked to pay for accommodation.
Your fees for aged care cover both the care you receive and your accommodation, and sometimes, extra services.
Your care fees cover daily living costs such as nursing care, housekeeping and meals. They are paid, in part, by all residents and are determined by the Department of Social Services.
For residents entering care after July 1 2014, you can choose from three simple ways to pay for your accommodation.
These options allow for more flexibility on how you pay for accommodation and are designed to be fairer for everyone.
You can visit the web page of your chosen care home on the Bupa Aged Care website and click on the “Accommodation” tab.
Some aged care homes offer a higher standard of accommodation, food and service in return for a daily fee. Whether you are in an Extra Service home or not, the quality of your care remains the same.
