History

Lower Hunter Masonic Aged Care provides RFBI Community Services in the Lower Hunter Valley. We are based in the Kurri Kurri Masonic Village.

At Lower Hunter Masonic Aged Care, we provide Community Aged Care Packages (CACPs). These are individually planned and coordinated packages of care, carried out in the community and tailored to help older Australians remain living in their own homes. They are funded by the Australian Government to provide for the complex care needs of older people. We have been operating CACPs in the Lower Hunter Valley since the late 1990’s.

Services for our packages are available for people living within the Cessnock Local Government Area.
