Edgarley Assisted Living is a community based not for profit aged care facility in Casterton, western Victoria. The facility was established in 1955 and commenced operations as two houses and has added capacity over the years to now cater for 43 residents and 23 independent units.
We are overseen by a Board of volunteer Directors, and a full-time CEO manages the day-to-day operations. The Board of Directors is drawn from the local community, and they give their time freely to contribute to the broader community.
We currently have 60+ staff employed on a full time, part-time or casual basis, including Registered and Enrolled Nurses, Personal Care Workers, Cleaners, Caters, Administration and Maintenance. Our staff are all qualified and have the opportunity to participate in training to learn the best practices and follow them at Edgarley, as we aim to provide our residents with high standards services through highly prepared staff members.
Edgarley is the second largest employer in Casterton and makes a significant economic contribution to the local community. It injects $3m in salaries and a further $800,000 into the local community annually.
As an aged care facility, our role is to provide for the region’s elderly citizens who, for various reasons, have found it challenging to remain in their home and require assistance with their daily care needs. Edgarley provides the support they need to live a comfortable life in the community they have been involved with all their life. They are free to continue to live the life they have established and continue to play a role in their loved one’s lives and the general community.
