Where Enjoying Life Matters

Care Types

Here at Hardi Aged Care all our homes offer two types of care, permanent care for when you or a loved one are not able to remain living at home and respite care for when they may need some extra support or just a little break from day to day life.

Outlined below are the Hardi care types explained.


Permanent Care

Hardi offers permanent care for when a person is no longer able to remain living independently, after an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) assessment, they can move full-time into a Hardi Aged Care facility and receive the nursing, care and social support that they require on an around-the-clock basis.

While we understand that nothing quite compares to the independence and memories that come with your own home, at Hardi Aged Care we encourage our residents to embrace a different idea of what home means. All of our residents are encouraged to decorate their rooms and bring personal items with them in order to create a space they find familiar and feel comfortable in.

We also encourage our residents to continue with many of the activities and the relationships they had in their own home.  We suggest they do this by continuing to attend external activities, celebrating their normal cultural activities and observing their faith, and also by inviting loved ones to visit at suitable times. At Hardi Aged Care we promote a home-like environment and a community atmosphere.  Visitors are welcome at all times, as long as they are respectful of all our residents and staff.


Respite Care

Hardi offers respite care as an option for temporary stay in a residential aged care facility from a period of week, to up to two months.  As with permanent care, each resident in respite care must have a current ACAT assessment.

Residents may enter respite for a variety of reasons, including the need for some extra support and care following a hospital stay, or while recovering from an illness. We also provide respite in the event that a full-time career needs a break from their caring role for any reason.

Our respite residents become one of the Hardi family during their stay and receive the same level of care as our permanent residents, as well as the option to participate in all our activities and events.

  • It has been 5 months since our father James passed away but we wanted to again acknowledge Elaine and staff for the time, commitment, care and compassion that you showed to James during his illness and to all members of our family. After reflecting back, I think it is important to say that even though Hardi Aged Care Guildford isn’t part of our daily lives we still hold the nursing home in high standards. So, this email is to just say that Elaine and the staff are still in our hearts and were an important part of our journey with dad. A journey that was extremely challenging, but we have peace in our hearts knowing that dad was with you at the end.  We came to know some of the residents well and still think of them.

  • “My mother passed away after nearly nine years at Mountainview as a high care resident. I just wanted to say that the staff were wonderful and treated her with respect and dignity. Over the years, as to be expected, we occasionally had issues that needed sorting and they would get straight onto it. I cannot recommend Mountainview highly enough. My mum had no choice but to go into high care following a stroke so initially was distressed at being there, but the love, friendship and laughter provided on a daily basis by staff, residents and relatives meant that she was happy in the last few years of her life. Thank you Mountainview.”

  • “I moved my parents from another facility to Hardi Aged Care at Seven Hills one year ago. It is the best thing that I have done for my parents.In my opinion I say that they moved from a backyard soccer coach to the institute of sport! They want for nothing. They are both in the extra services unit. They each have their own spacious rooms with bathrooms attached. There is a lovely dining hall on the same level, below is another dining hall/lounge room and outside is a lovely garden. Mum and Dad want for nothing.The staff at Hardis are all nice and treat my parents with the respect and love they deserve. All the staff from cleaning, kitchen, maintenance, reception, nursing, laundry, lifestyle staff and management all treat each resident with the same level of love and respect and I believe this is what sets this nursing home apart from all the rest. I am really thankful that Hardis was recommended to me as I do believe that if I had not moved both my parents they would not be here today.”

    Seven Hills – Cornelia Cole (May, 2017)

  • “I would like to thank all of staff looking after my mother Carol. Your team in this area go the next level in caring and I would recommend this nursing home to anyone who asked me. I would like to say a big thank you for all of the help and kind nature all your team has given my mother.”

    Blacktown – Daran Halkett (August, 2016)

  • “My dear friends, what can I say but thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Everybody at your lovely aged care home has been playing well above their weight when it comes to the care that Peter was provided with, I can name a few individuals such as John, Amy, and Greer but everybody knows the list is much larger than that, especially me! Not much else to say except for a very very big heartfelt thankyou to all your staff at Mountainview. The best aged care facility in the world.”
