Osboine Contemporary Aged Care is a modern, purpose-built residential aged care facility accommodating 106 residents requiring a higher level of care and assistance. It has been designed with four wings, named in honour of past Board members: Orton, Cameron and Gillon, and the fourth 30-bed wing named Glass in memory of Mr Nigel Glass, AM, who was Executive Director of the Spine & Limb Foundation for 29 years. The Glass wing was completed and opened in September 2014.
The facility also provides a secure environment (15 places) for residents who are at risk due to their wandering-type behaviours.
