What's different about HillView Care?

Our first residential aged care home opened in Ashmore in 1997 and since then we have worked hard to ensure we provide the highest standard of care seen in retirement communities on the Gold Coast.

We are privately owned by medical specialist Dr Stephen Rackemann, who believes in providing excellence in care and putting the wellbeing of every individual first.

Our dedicated team of aged care professionals show compassion and care in everything they do and go above and beyond to create a comfortable and welcoming environment for each and every resident living at HillView Care.

Our team ensure residents always maintain their dignity and independence, getting to know every person to develop a strong bond and connection to help them feel at home.

We have qualified nurses and GPs available and provide 24/7 medical care. Looking after our residents’ health and wellbeing is always our main priority.

Premium lifestyle and dining options

It’s no joke that some of our residents have better social lives than people half their life! Thanks to a team of dedicated diversional therapists, our residents can join in on a colourful and engaging range of activities, both onsite and out in the community.

We offer more than just bingo! We encourage our residents to be as independent as possible, while putting their health and wellbeing first to support retirement communities Gold Coast.

Our residents enjoy BBQ nights, cocktail hours, special events and bus trips to local attractions. We also have a variety of fitness groups if your loved one likes to stay active and healthy.

Premium dining options

While living at HillView Care residents dine on a beautiful selection of home-cooked meals, cooked onsite by our qualified chefs. Our impressive food service includes a range of healthy meals, using fresh ingredients.
