Increasingly, those choosing to live in residential care are doing so at an older age.
As part of Euroa Health, medical, nursing, allied, personal and social services and support will be available to all residents of GraniteHill Residential Aged Care Facility.
This modern, single storey building is under construction on Kennedy Street, adjoining the Hospital. GraniteHill will continue Euroa’s love of beautiful landscaped grounds, and the gardens are being designed for ease of access for all abilities.
All 75 private rooms have en-suites. The building incorporates 6 lounge areas and 3 dining rooms as well as a cafe, hairdresser, theatre, a men’s den and activity rooms. More information is provided in downloads, below.
Building Fund Appeal
While the majority of funding has been secured from the Federal Government, $500,000 is needed by local donation. This will contribute to the construction, fit out and landscaping of GraniteHill.

Organise a fundraiser – use your imagination and skills to organise a fundraiser with proceeds to benefit the Building Fund. If you or your club is considering running an event, we would love to know so that we can add it to a community Calendar of Events.
Most fundraising events and activities being planned in Euroa and district to benefit the Euroa Health Building Fund will be undertaken by community groups, clubs and businesses. As such, they are not actually Euroa Health Inc. events.; We are grateful to receive advice about the event so we can save the date in an event calendar to help avoid date clashes; but the event or activity is not considered an event undertaken by Euroa Health. Whilst we greatly appreciate the proceeds coming to the Building Fund, we are unable to accept any liability for events and activities planned by others. Please satisfy yourself as to any legal requirements or community obligations, as we are not able to accept any liability for anything including cost over-runs or insurances.
(NB If you want your event to be an official Euroa Health Inc. event, we would need to approve it and run it with the help of a task group of volunteers. Please talk to a member of the Appeal Committee or to the Community Engagement Coordinator in the first instance. Events endorsed by Euroa Health Inc. are in response to proposals considered by the Appeal Committee and approved/adopted by the Board of Euroa Health Inc. There are official Euroa Health events planned for 2016 and 2017 and proposals for 2016 are currently under consideration)
