Our 24 hour facility has three levels of accommodation available, ranging from high support through to independent living, and residents are able to stay for short, medium and long terms, depending on individual needs.
Due to the limited numbers of spaces available at Kurinda, it is difficult to predict when an opening may arise. Therefore, it is best to ensure your client or loved one is on our list of interested clients so that they can be considered as soon as an opening arises.
