Set in a picturesque region of Victoria in the Macedon ranges and with views of the Campaspe River. We have easy access to the local community, shops and local attractions like:
Our bright, friendly lounge areas have beautiful high ceilings and a fire place, creating an ideal setting where you can relax or entertain guests while enjoying the wonderful rural views. We also have a delightful range of communal areas, which provide a great social space and location for activities and concerts.
If you love being outdoors you can enjoy the gardens at Bupa Kyneton. Tended by our own horticulturalist, the gardens are a beautiful place to spend time. We have two internal courtyards and a feature pathway that runs around the home through the gardens. If you have a green thumb, you can enjoy gardening in our raised veggie patch and flower beds. Our children’s playground with shade sail and beautiful gazebo are popular with visiting families.
We believe that there’s only one way to care, your way. Before you become a resident here, you are welcomed into our home and taken on a personal tour. Our General Manager and other members of the team will spend time getting to know you and creating a care plan that suits your needs.
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. Our home is also complete with a CCTV security system and an easy-to-use nurse call system.
At Bupa Kyneton, you will be supported by our multidisciplinary care team of registered nurses, enrolled nurses, carers and care manager. As well as our dedicated care team, you will have access to a physiotherapist who visits weekly, a podiatrist, dietician, speech pathologist and a massage therapist who all visit regularly.
We enjoy strong relationships with local General Practitioners (GPs) who visit our home twice a week, and provide an after-hours phone service, so you can benefit from this additional support any time of the day.

The move to an aged care home doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to give up your passions, interests and hobbies. In fact, we offer so many different activities for you to get involved with that you could even pick up new hobbies!
Our team of Activities Officers are committed to providing a wide range of activities, including:
Animals play a big part in our home, we have our own chickens, cats, aviary, and in the 13 acres surrounding our home we have alpacas! Once a week we also have a visit from a pet therapist with dogs or puppies.
At Bupa Kyneton, we pride ourselves on providing a fresh seasonal menu and a choice of cuisine at every meal with the help of our dietician. We value your input, and strive to make sure that your preferences are reflected in our menus as much as possible.
If you like to cook or bake you can use our lifestyle kitchen whenever you like, even with your family. We run a couple of cooking sessions a week often preparing cakes or small bites for happy hour. Every month we have a resident’s choice meal, such as fish and chips in old style newspaper and everyone, including families and our team, are invited.
If there’s a special occasion such as a birthday you would like to celebrate with family and friends, you can enjoy the moment in our private dining room. Here, your loved ones can also join you for a drink, a cup of tea or a meal.
We encourage family and friends to get involved in everything that’s happening in our home. They are always welcome to join in on our celebrations, including Easter, Pancake Day and all the main holidays. Christmas time is a particularly big occasion with everyone coming together for a celebration.
Our monthly resident-relative meetings are a great opportunity for you to let us know how things are going for you. They also give us a chance to get to know your family a little better. Family members can also receive our bi-monthly newsletter, filled with fun information on our home and events.
At Bupa Kyneton, we enjoy strong ties with the community and regularly get involved in local events like the Daffodil Festival and Annual Agricultural Show, where we have won a prize for our homemade jam! We have our own Bupa bus and take day trips up to five times a week around the local area to places such as:
We also run an exciting program with the local primary school, called ‘The Old and The New’ where the residents exchange experiences with the children. We teach them things such as how to knit, and the children share their expertise of technology like iPads* and Facebook.*iPad is a trademark of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S and other countries.
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.

For people who need regular assistance with most daily activities
