For the team at aged care residence Pathways Killara Gardens, our overarching approach is centred on providing holistic, inclusive and respectful care which embraces the human spirit. It is through our wonderful team of people that we embody this philosophy, and we aim to connect with each resident in a meaningful and personal manner.

“We want to thank all the Killara Gardens team for the exceptional care you gave our Mum over the two years she lived at Killara Gardens. In particular, the support over the difficult last few weeks has been an enormous help to all of us.

It was clearly more than just a job for the staff: their affection for Mum was obvious and she told us many times how much she appreciated this and their care for her.

Once again, many, many thanks. We felt we’d made a good choice in 2016. Everything since then has confirmed it.”

At Pathways Killara Gardens, our meals are nutritionally balanced and prepared on-site using the freshest, high-quality produce available.

Using the finest produce on offer, our Executive Chef presents restaurant-quality menus that are constantly changing and freshly prepared every day. Individual dietary requests and cultural preferences are accommodated wherever possible.

Meal satisfaction is regularly monitored through discussion, meetings and surveys. Residents are encouraged to enjoy family meals, parties and other celebrations.

Venues are available for our residents’ personal use which include the Private Dining Room, Courtyard and Outdoor Terrace.


Compassionate, person-centred care for people requiring memory support.

Utilising highly trained, dementia-specific nursing staff and lifestyle coordinators, our Memory Support Unit caters to the complex behavioural and medical care requirements of individuals with varying types of dementia, from early onset to advanced.

Our care teams have an extensive level of experience understanding individuals that have difficulty expressing their needs and know that those with dementia require much more than a ‘One-size-fits-all’ approach. Personal, health, social, emotional and spiritual care will be provided in the least restrictive environment possible while striving to normalise activity and offer ongoing opportunities to stay physically and cognitively engaged.

With understanding and gentle care, the environment is designed specifically to encourage interaction when required and to provide quiet areas when space is desired.


The aim of the Resident Lifestyle and Leisure Program is to create an environment that provides the best quality of life for every resident through meaningful and enjoyable activities while endeavouring to maintain the Resident’s dignity and self-esteem.

Residents are invited to participate in the planning and review of the monthly activities program.

Monthly activities calendars are available for both residents and relatives. A wide variety of activities such as reminiscence, social lunches, morning teas, Men’s Group, Tai Chi, current affairs and gentle exercises as well as services including Aromatherapy, Hairdressing and Manicures are all available.
