Rumbalara House – Care, comfort and contemporary outlook
A beautiful new residential care wing is now open at Rumbalara House. It offers our residents and their visiting families a lovely environment to feel supported and welcome. Rumbalara House is located on Adelene’s tranquil village grounds which are surrounded by native bushland, providing a scenic place to live when it becomes too difficult to manage at home.
Adelene’s rich history of care spanning nearly 40 years has guided the blueprint for this architecturally designed residence. We have incorporated details that bring an ease and accessibility to care where our residents have their daily needs attended to by our thoughtful, attentive and well-trained staff.
Rumbalara House tastefully combines comfortable shared spaces and private suites so residents can vary their days and join in activities when they wish, adding to a sense of enjoyment and fulfillment. Large windows in the lounge areas and private suites create an uplifting backdrop of sunny aspects and garden views. With generous interior spaces flowing through generous corridors to each room, the design assists residents to move easily between areas, to enable as much independence as possible.

Café area and dining options
Nutritious and fresh meals are part of the Adelene care experience. Prepared onsite and served in the dining room, our residents enjoy a variety of tasty dishes every day. We also cater for special dietary needs such as diabetic or pureed foods. Chatting over a cup of tea is often a familiar and enjoyable time with family and friends, and visitors are welcome to use the tea and coffee making facilities in the dining room or enjoy refreshments in our cafe.
