History and purpose
The Ararat Retirement Village was established in 1970 as a community based not-for-profit organisation. Situated in the Rural City of Ararat, its purpose continues to be to provide quality aged care services for older people.
Recognising that people’s needs vary, it combines independent living with a co-located residential care facility. In 2004, the residential care section was rebuilt and expanded to 60 beds. New units were completed in 2009 and total 34.
Ararat Retirement Village Inc. mission is to provide individualised, quality aged care services to residents, which recognises the residents need for privacy, companionship, respect and independence in an environment that is safe, secure, stimulating and homelike.
