A fully qualified hairdresser regularly visits the village and appointments can be made by contacting staff.
Adelene is ideally situated very close to public and private hospitals and a village nurse is available Monday to Friday to help with day-to-day care.
We also have a visiting podiatrist, optometrist and physiotherapist who each run regular clinics in the village. A dedicated medical suite is used by visiting local doctors, making it so easy for our independent living residents to book an appointment and seek professional advice.
Where a greater degree of care is needed, nursing assistance is available 24 hours a day in Rumbalara House.
There is a residents’ library in the communal area with a wide range of books and magazines. The Wyoming sub-branch of Gosford Library adjoins the village, and the Gosford City Council bookmobile regularly visits the village.
There is an excellent range of activities available throughout the week and these are organised by our enthusiastic staff and residents.
The recreation hall is the social centre of the village where you can try your luck at bingo, belt out a tune at the regular singalongs or keep fit with the exercise group or walking club. With so many options available you can keep a full social calendar, or a quieter timetable, depending on what you prefer each week.
Adelene’s outdoor patio garden area is an ideal place to catch up with family and friends and a delicious freshly ground coffee can be enjoyed at the Gum Leaf Café in Rumbalara House.
A non-denominational Christian service is held each Sunday afternoon, and there is a monthly prayer on wheels. All churches are encouraged to conduct services at the village.
Adelene’s village buses are available for regular shopping trips and popular excursions including concert trips and frequent outings tailored for men’s and ladies’ interest groups.
The local bus networks have a bus stop right near the main entry of the village. Gosford Railway Station is just six minutes drive and provides direct train services to Sydney and Newcastle.
The place we call home! After trying four other villages, Norma and I have finally found a village that is perfect for us, which is Adelene Village. We know we have our future fully taken care of for the years ahead.

Adelene welcomed me! As a relative newcomer to the Village I already regret I did not make the move 10 years ago. After visiting several villages I was driving past Adelene and was impressed by the lovely grounds and spacious placing of units, and my son and I drove straight to the office and when we left I know I had found my “forever” home.
The staff are amazing, the office, maintenance and nursing all are very caring and helpful. We feel that this move has been ideal for us.

My Husband and I do a lot of caravanning and it is a good feeling to know that our house is secure whilst we are away and we can come home to gardens that do not require upkeep and lawns are mowed.

Staff availability, unfailing courtesy and attention ease any concerns about assistance and maintenance needs. The natural surround and lawns are a delight to experience as are the cheerful greetings one receives when out walking. Access to local facilities and transport is convenient and provided by both the village and state resources... such a boon. I am anticipating happy and secure years of living in this vibrant and caring community.
From the initial meeting at an open day to the present time when I am now a resident of Adelene, my first impressions of warmth, friendliness and caring support have been reinforced and grown. Safe and secure, comfortable and relaxed have been added to the sense of “rightness” about the decision to relocate into the Village.
After 7 years in residence Adelene has well and truly lived up to all our expectations.
Adelene is a quiet place to live and our fellow neighbours are close, but do not impinge on the privacy of others. Adelene Retirement Village is such value for money, you would be hard pressed to beat it!
I would like to share with you the caption from a wall plaque hanging on my deck which I feel sums up Adelene Village for me:
I journeyed to the rainbow’s end and found not gold, but you my friend.
My verandah which gets the winter sun all day is a favourite spot. The option to have my own little garden was most welcome. I have enjoyed my first crop of sweet peas, jasmine, roses. It was good to already have friends in the village and I soon made new ones amongst my neighbours… and having regular visits from the Village Nurse is reassuring.
The Village Nurses who work with the Self Care Residents are treasures.
My family are happy in the knowledge that Adelene has a Hostel and Nursing Home with a wonderful reputation.
We first came to the Village on Open Day and fell in love with everything. The spacious unit, lawns and gardens, birds and friendly staff which made our move so easy. We didn’t take any time to make our final decision, and we paid our deposit on the same day. It is so nice to have friendly people around you who are friendly and care for others. We are very happy.

Our GP said that Adelene was the only Village he could recommend. We liked the fact that it is self owned and as share holders, we have a say in all major decisions.
