Carinya Aged Care and Retirement Living 

Carinya Lodge Inc. was established in 1970, originally as a Council organisation, through time Carinya Lodge has evolved to it's present state as a registered Not-for-Profit Organisation and a registered Charity.

Our Committee of Management is run purely by volunteers who have an array of expertise, with their knowledge and guidance Carinya Lodge is one of South Gippsland's most desired Aged Care and Retirement Living facilities available.

There have previously been two expansions of the facility with a third to commence May 2019, by far the biggest expansion and upgrade Carinya Lodge has seen so far, with an expected budget of $7Million by completion.  Including 17 new rooms with en-suites, refurbishment of 40 existing rooms, new Sensory Garden, four new Independent Living Units and a Community Garden are just some of the improvements within the expansion and upgrade scope.
