ViTA is a brand new, state of the art centre that opened in June 2014 and brings together health, aged care and education to offer a unique solution to improve your health and wellbeing. Here, the focus is on restoring your health in a stimulating, engaging and therapeutic environment
ViTA is modelled on hotel-style accommodation, striking a balance between contemporary decor and home-like features. The design elements of ViTA underpin the philosophy of the centre, which is focused on residents’ quality of life – not just quality care.
In the contemporary furnished living and dining areas, you can relax or entertain friends and family in the welcoming ambience. Single rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, ensure your privacy, as well as a sense of personal space while in a supported environment.
Casual lounge areas with kitchenettes make it easy to continue to enjoy the little things in life such as lingering over coffee with family and friends. ViTA’s setting among mature gum trees and internal gardens means that most rooms enjoy garden views.
ViTA promotes a Healthy Ageing approach, so that every person has the opportunity to achieve optimal physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing. This approach encompasses a broad range of health promoting activities such as an onsite gym managed by a qualified personal trainer, access to onsite rehabilitation and restoration services, a bustling calendar of social activities and the use of technology to enhance physical activity.

Daphne Hazell has spent most of her life surrounded by books and, at 91, has just set up her ninth library. Daphne drew on her many years as a librarian, including 27 years at Sacred Heart College, to establish the library at ACH Group ViTA, Daw Park. Many of the 1000+ books and a book trolley have been re-homed from the Repatriation General Hospital library, where Daphne volunteered for 15 years.
