As with all Goodwin live-in care communities, the level of care you can expect in the new George Sautelle House takes into consideration your overall wellbeing, with services that help you achieve the best quality of life.
George Sautelle House will offer 24/7 onsite, on-staff nurses. This service is not mandated in the ACT and not found at all facilities. Our own 24-hour onsite nurse services can provide faster pain relief at all hours of the night, higher level clinical care and case management, and may reduce transfers to hospital emergency departments.
Goodwin facilities have a geriatrician working closely with our own Aged Care Specialist Nurse Practitioner, and who together lead regular Registered Nurse clinics with residents to ensure one-to-one attention around their health and wellbeing needs, and a person-centred approach to care.
These clinics give our carers a greater insight into how residents are feeling. This allows us to treat the person, not just the diagnosis.
This means that you can be assured of the highest quality clinical care available. You will have carers you are familiar with and who know you as well as dedicated activities officers to ensure a quality lifestyle.

Goodwin residents get to have their say on menu design through our Food for Thought focus groups.
All food will be cooked fresh in our on-site commercial kitchen. Designed by a committee of nutritionists, aged care experts and quality hotel industry professionals including our head chef, our seasonal menus offer two hot options per meal including a full continental breakfast, additional cold options at lunch and dinner, plus morning tea, afternoon tea, and supper.
