We are well aware that the decisions involved cause rising levels of concern both personally and for your loved ones. You will find us completely attuned to your needs, and dedicated to helping both you and your family adapt to the many changes ahead.

You can count on our compassionate and caring staff to listen to your needs in detail and provide the right options for you.

Country living in a friendly community

RFBI Glen Innes Masonic Village is located 1.5 kms from the Glen Innes town centre; this beautiful regional town in the New England sapphire region is an easy drive from Armidale, Inverell and Grafton.

Local attractions include heritage listed buildings and outstanding parks and rainforests. Glen Innes has a strong Celtic connection; local Celtic societies and bands visit us, as do the Masonic Ladies (for morning teas) and the RSL sub-branch.

You will be looked after in a loving and caring environment where compassionate care and attention to your needs are our number one priority. In addition to an on-site chapel, we have a large activities room, enabling us to offer a wide range of options including bingo, computers for internet and Skype access, Nintendo Wii games, movies, exercise classes (with instructors) and painting classes.

We also have a bus for weekly local shopping trips, movie theatre visits, local arts council plays and excursions to nearby Inverell and Armidale.

It's all about bringing you an active and engaging lifestyle that includes outings, excursions to places of interest, as well as schools, who bring us singing and dancing shows.

As of the 1st July 2014, new residents have greater choice on how to pay for their accommodation costs. These choices include;

  1. Residents can choose to pay for accommodation by a refundable deposit (RAD) paid as a lump sum,
  2. A daily payment (DAP), or
  3. A combination of both

A daily accommodation payment accrues daily and is paid periodically (e.g. fortnightly). A combination payment includes both a partial lump sum and daily.

As RFBI offers a variety of accommodation options and prices we encourage you and your family to discuss your needs with a financial adviser to ensure that you are receiving the best financial outcome available to you.

Our published Accommodation Payment prices are our maximum rates and will apply for those with adequate financial means. Residents with limited assets may be eligible for support by the Government.

This means that you will not be required to pay the published Accommodation Payment. If you are not supported, but affordability is still a factor, be assured this will not necessarily affect your eligibility for accommodation.

The Room Prices (RAD) and Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) amounts quoted above are current as of today and may change (in line with interest rate adjustments) for entry dates after the 1st July. When there are changes to the interest rate, RFBI will update the new DAP based on the new quarterly interest rate.

Additional services (ie not including the accommodation price for the room) associated with the room

At this Village we are pleased offer an Additional Services Package at a cost of $15 per day that is payable by all non-supported residents. This includes a 43″ Smart TV, unlimited WiFi internet access, themed village events, wine or beer/soft drinks with lunch, weekly family happy hour and local entertainers. More details are available at the village. Other services that you can access at additional cost include hairdressing, café/kiosk purchases, telephone connection and line rental and Foxtel connection.

The original building, opened in 1990, stands on the site of a timber mill called Potter and Greenaway. The local community raised funds to establish the village, known locally as Glenwood Gardens and, thanks to a substantial donation from RFBI, a 28-bed residential care village was built.

Since 1990, six 2-bedroom villas have been added, as well as 22 new residential care beds. The former Federal MP for New England, Tony Windsor, officially opened these in 2004.

Glenwood Gardens also took over the CWA Mountain Home, relocating the residents to our village. The 8-bed memory support unit is named CWA Wing, in recognition of the former building.

In 2009, RFBI took over the village from the local community. Since then, major upgrades to the kitchen and laundry have been completed, as well as the installation of a fire sprinkler system and upgrades to the nurse call system and lighting to add increased safety and security to our residents and staff.
