McKenzie Aged Care Group

Healthcare & Social Assistance

An Australian family company.

In September 2001, when sisters Sally and Mary-Ann McKenzie opened their first aged care home, ‘Armitage’, in the inner Melbourne suburb of Windsor, they saw a need to create an environment that truly felt like a family home. Their vision was to build an aged care home that they would be proud to live in.

The facility was a fine one, with large lounge and dining spaces and sitting rooms with fireplaces. The Resident’s rooms were large, each with an ensuite and most with a shared balcony. The Armitage was a success and set the McKenzies on the path for future growth. On 1 December 2014, the Armitage was sold. It would always have a special place in the hearts of the McKenzies because it was their first. “It’s where we started,” said Mary-Ann.

Today, their original vision has continued to grow, with 17 warm, homely and welcoming communities in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.

Our residents receive the highest quality of care without compromise

The McKenzie Aged Care Group has grown steadily to become one of Australia’s leading privately-owned aged care and retirement providers. Each of our communities remains true to the original vision set back in 1998 and delivers continuously on what we set out to achieve. McKenzie takes pride in employing over 2,500 staff, contributing over $35million to the Australian economy in taxes.

At McKenzie, people are cared for and cared about. We value the family unit and all that it stands for. This is why your family is treated like one of our own. You will immediately feel the difference when you walk through the doors of a McKenzie home.
