Ralac’s Lionsbrae, located at 29 Everard Rd, East Ringwood offers accommodation and care for 69 residents.
Ralac is a not for profit community based organisation providing aged care and affordable community housing. Originally established by the Maroondah Lions Clubs, Ralac is now managed by an independent Board of Management, the members of which are drawn from the community.
With a strong focus on equity, ralac strives to make a positive difference in people’s lives. Creating communities based on understanding and respect is at the core of their work.
Lionsbrae is different from other aged care homes because it was established by the community for the community. The warm, homelike environment is the first thing that greets you when they walk in the door. At Lionsbrae they genuinely strive to respect each person’s choice and individuality. The friendly home does not compromise on clinical care with Registered Nurses employed around the clock.
Ralac has recently been recognised as a specialised provider of aged care to people from a background of homelessness or who have been at the risk of homelessness. The Commonwealth Government has granted Lionsbrae 14 aged care places specifically for people from these backgrounds. With the new places came capital funding to construct a new 15 bed unit, as well as refurbishment of the existing facilities.
Ralac is delighted to be recognised as a provider of aged care to people from a background of disadvantage and in particular homelessness as homelessness is now impacting on more and more older people.
