Tenterfield Care Centre is a community owned aged care provider dedicated to looking after and providing wellbeing for our older community members. Millrace Hostel and Haddington Nursing Home offer 82 residential care places and 8 self care units across both facilities with more additions planned and underway. Services include respite and a secure dementia specific wing. Both facilities offer a wide range of activities, including bus outings, exercise classes, social evenings, musicals and church services.

It’s largely thanks to the generosity of our community and the commitment and determination of a dedicated committee that Tenterfield Care Centre began and has continued. The committee was formed in 1988 to prevent our aged-care residents from being sent to facilities outside of the local area. After much fundraising, and with support from both state and local government, Millrace Hostel was opened in 1991. The construction of a nursing home followed, with Haddington Nursing Home opening in 2003. Col Mann was the first chairman and remained in that position for 30 years.

Tenterfield Care Centre is still a not for profit community owned organisation and all members and directors are volunteers. To ensure that the people who built our community remain in the community as they age we rely on fundraising and the generous support of local businesses and individuals.

Our Black Tie Event has been created to raise awareness in the community of the need to support Tenterfield Care Centre and also raise much needed funds to continue to provide these services to Tenterfield and it’s families. We will also use this event to pay tribute to Col Mann and past and present committees for their tireless efforts. The plan is to have our Black Tie Evening as an inaugural event that our community rally behind and look forward to every year.
