Mitchell House joins Respect

Mitchell House joins Respect

31 March 22

We are pleased to announce that Mitchell House in Morwell, VIC, is the latest aged care provider to join our Respect family. 

On the 25th of March 2022, the Respect Executive Team visited Mitchell House in Morwell to discuss the possibility of the facility joining Respect. 

Following a meeting with the Mitchell House Board, staff and residents, the facility has voted to join Respect and now marks our seventh home in Victoria, including St John’s in Wangaratta, Tongala Memorial, Cohuna Village and Alcheringa in Swan Hill.

Like many of the homes that we merge with, Mitchell House has cited the increasingly complex, competitive and challenging aged care environment as reasons for wanting a larger, specialised aged care organisation like us, to take over to ensure the Mitchell House Hostel and Independent Living Units, have the opportunity to thrive.

We are incredibly honoured to have the opportunity to maintain the legacy and history of Mitchell House and would like to congratulate all members of the team who have worked incredibly hard to have made this a possibility. 

This addition continues our expansion into Victoria and brings our total number of homes to 15 with more than 1,300 residents and 1,700 employees spanning three states.
