Kew Gardens Concierge Car Service — Now Available!

The Australian Aged Care Group Pty Ltd (AACG) has identified a need to provide residents with greater flexibility in travelling to and from a facility. AACG believes in empowering our residents by increasing their ability to live their lives as independently as possible, whilst still in care. We are pleased to offer our new Concierge Car Service at Kew Gardens Aged Care, which will operate by appointment seven days a week in partnership with assisted travel provider, Call on Clare. Residents will benefit from having access to a qualified nurse to accompany them to and from medical appointments if family and friends aren’t available.
