Retirement Villages Gold Coast

At HillView Care we have two beautiful residential aged care homes on the Gold Coast, in Ashmore and Merrimac. We opened our first 40 bed retirement villages Gold Coast in Ashmore in 1997, followed by a 134 bed, architecturally designed multi-level residence in Merrimac in 2006.

We are privately owned by medical specialist Dr Stephen Rackemann, who is passionate about excellence in care and the wellbeing of residents. Dr Rackemann believes it’s important to provide respect, compassion and to create a home-away-from-home for residents. Being a privately owned Gold Coast retirement village gives us the flexibility to make change and adapt quickly to provide the most personalised service to our residents.

What we offer:

The friendly HillView Care team provide personalised care and you won’t find staff that are more dedicated to ensuring the happiness of their residents. Providing personalised care helps to protect residents’ dignity and also ensures they can remain as independent as possible.
