About Pioneer House

Community Based

Pioneer House Aged Care is a community based organisation funded by the Federal Government and run by a voluntary management committee. Located in Mudgee we are approximately 3.5 hours pleasant drive from Sydney and the Central Coast. Nestled in a large undulating valley and positioned on the Central Tablelands of NSW we are part of the Mid Western Regional Council area.

Meeting a Community Need

Pioneer House first came into being when concerned citizens in the Mudgee area realised the need for an aged care facility in the district. Opening in 1965 we began our journey as an Aged Care Facility with just 16 beds. Never one to remain static, we continued to increase in size over the years until achieving our present capacity of 81 beds.

Quality Dementia Care

In 1995, Pioneer House commenced our association with quality dementia care through the opening of our secure high-level care dementia specific area. This area consists of a 16 bed unit and is now complemented by our new 18 bed low-level care dementia specific area.

In 2005 a further 31 low-level care beds were approved by the Commonwealth Government consisting of a secured low-level care dementia specific area and low care mainstream area.

We at Pioneer House provide access to appropriate healthcare at all times. Residents, or their representatives, are encouraged to make informed choices regarding treatment and care that will meet their individual needs.

Keeping you physically independent is also important to us and residents are assisted to maintain their own levels of personal care. All residents are individually assessed by our staff and care is planned specifically to suit the person’s needs. This is done in consultation with them and/or their representative.
