People over the age of 65 with mental health or behavioural issues are cared for by the Macalister Unit at Latrobe Regional Hospital.
The unit has 10 acute assessment beds and 10 nursing home beds for people with complex needs.
Macalister provides a safe and supportive environment for residents with a range of activities and programs including art, cooking, music and games.
Our pet therapy program recognises the benefits of the warmth and companionship of an animal. Macalister regularly hosts visits by therapy dogs.
