Welcome to Estia Health Forster, one of our aged care homes located on the Mid-North Coast of New South Wales
Estia Health Forster is a welcoming home in the charming seaside town of Forster. Set back from the main road, close to shops and with a bus stop at the door, the home sits among tranquil landscaped gardens which overlook the neighbouring lake.
The experienced clinicians, carers and hospitality teams look after all aspects of a resident’s care, including clinical, social and overall wellbeing and offer dementia and palliative care services, which can be accessed for short-term respite care or a longer stay. The home’s Memory Support Unit provides a safe and supportive environment for residents requiring additional support.
All rooms are spacious single rooms with ensuite and the single level home has a number of comfortable communal areas residents make the most of, with daily activities and visiting entertainers. The extensive landscaped gardens are used regularly by residents, their family and visitors for alfresco dining. Other features of the home include a very popular cafe, cinema, chapel holding regular services and gym room utilised by visiting allied health professionals.

Thank you for all your help in finding and assisting with all the required paperwork & documentation that has had to be completed in relation to my mum & dad. Your assistance has made it very easy on my parents. They love the Estia facility they now live in with it been 5 minutes away from where we live making it easy to visit them regularly. The amazing outcome my parents & I have received is much more than we could have ever hoped for or was expecting. Thankyou for all your help.Jonathan - Family member

What will it cost?
When moving into an aged care home the amount you pay will depend on the home and room you choose, your own circumstances and means to pay for the available care and services. Your accommodation and care costs may be partly or fully covered by the government, which will be determined by a means assessment.
Will it suit my needs?
We have 68 homes in NSW, QLD, SA and VIC and all offer care for those requiring a short-term or longer stay, as well as helping people requiring urgent care. Our experienced and compassionate teams care for people with a range of complex conditions, including people living with dementia, as well as those requiring palliative and end-of-life-care.
What are the next steps?
Moving home is a big decision, especially when it comes to aged care. Let us guide you through the process step-by-step with the right information at the right time. We will support you from your initial enquiry, answering your questions on the types of care we offer, the costs involved through to when you're ready to move into your new home.
