Adina Care was established in 1986 as the Cootamundra Nursing Home when the former Cootamundra District Hospital and the former Mercy Hospital were amalgamated to form what we now know as the Cootamundra Hospital.
From the sale of the Mercy Hospital, the Sisters of Mercy donated $500,000 toward the establishment of the Nursing Home. The Cootamundra Shire Council (as it then was) donated the site. The local community raised approximately $137,000 through multiple fundraising activities, with the balance coming from a Federal government grant. Collectively this covered the total building cost of $1,650,000 which enabled the new 50 bed facility to commence operations, all completely debt free.
Over the years Adina Care’s facility has continued to grow, now catering to the needs of up to 62 elderly and frail residents across respite care, high care and dementia care. We promote and maintain the health and wellbeing of our residents by providing a living environment in which residents can feel comfortable and secure. We establish safe, therapeutic and flexible routines that maximise each resident’s potential for independence and maintain the link between family, friends and community to enrich the quality of life for all.
