Wynyard Care Centre

Located in a coastal town in beautiful North West Tasmania, you will experience a real sense of community from the moment you enter Synovum Care Wynyard which is home to 70 residents.  We have implemented an Australian first in aged care with the development of two small scale living houses.  The main centre is a traditional style nursing home with a total of 56 residents.  The small scale living houses each have 7 ensuite bedrooms, an open plan dining and lounge area and a fully accessible and functional kitchen and laundry. Whether you choose the main centre or one of our small scale houses, making Synovum Care Wynyard your home means you continue to be an important part of your local community in a supportive environment.  You will of course have access to professional services such as Registered Nurses, Physiotherapists and Palliative Care Nurses as required.
