What food is provided at Amaroo?
We know that the food we eat is connected to our health and overall wellbeing. That’s why across our Villages and Caring Centres we provide a delicious—and most importantly, nutritious—menu. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, along with three lighter selections of morning tea, afternoon tea, and supper. All meals are made fresh daily by our team of qualified chefs. If you require a specific food focus program, you can work alongside our catering team to ensure the daily menu selection is reflective of your dietary preferences.
While our Villages and Caring Centres allow residents to enjoy their food in a social environment, we also provide the opportunity for residents to dine privately.

No, unfortunately pets are not allowed in our Caring Centres due to health and safety requirements.
What is the difference between Amaroo Villages and Caring Centres?
Amaroo Villages are designed to allow you to live independently and enjoy the lifestyle that you love.
Our Caring Centres provide around-the-clock 24/7 care to ensure that you’re looked after and supported. You’re still able to live your life the way you want in your own private room, but with comprehensive assistance that gives you and your family peace of mind.
