Australian Aged Care Group

Level 3/ 44 Caroline Street, South Yarra, Victoria, 3141

The Matthies Family has been involved in Aged Care since the early 1960’s.

Keith and Betty Matthies are acknowledged by the Aged Care Industry as being amongst its early innovators and instrumental in guiding the industry to where it is today.

They were one of the first operators to build and operate new purpose built facilities in the 1970’s and early 1980’s and were also the founders and operators of Canterbury Nursing Home from 1966 to their retirement in the mid 2000’s.

Their son John Matthies, the Managing Director of Australian Aged Care Group Pty. Ltd. has had a life-long involvement in this industry (both as an operator and Lawyer) and was keen to perpetuate the legacy of his parents. John spent several years looking for a suitable site to build a state of the art aged care home meeting the needs and expectations of baby boomers (of which he is one) together with people of his parents’ generation.

He was fortunate to locate a suitable site in Gellibrand Street, Kew previously occupied as the residence of the Catholic Archbishop. No expense has been spared in the building of Kew Gardens Aged Care. The new facility includes a cinema, cafe, bar, BBQ courtyards, private dining room as well as sitting and dining rooms overlooking Alexandra Gardens.

Kew Gardens retains a homelike appearance and ambiance that has resulted in the home being acknowledged as the benchmark facility of the Aged Care Industry. John’s parents Betty and Keith have been residents.
