About Us

Cadorna House is a family orientated nursing home for the aged, located in the Launceston region at 91a Cormiston Road, Riverside Tasmania. Situated within the grounds of the Cormiston Retirement Village, our location overlooks the Tamar Valley and offers residents magnificent views of the river and mountains.

Being a small, privately-owned aged care facility with qualified and dedicated staff and management, we pride ourselves on offering a personalised and welcoming homelike environment for only 33 residents. The boutique style accommodation which our home provides ensures each resident is cared for to the highest of standards. 

All our staff share the same commitment to delivering premium, individually-focussed aged care, based on an intimate knowledge of each resident’s personal requirements.

The home is in close proximity to many services including a Medical Centre, pharmacy, supermarket, hotel and community centre, and is only 10 minutes from the Launceston CBD with public transport easily accessible.

Residents of Cadorna House are encouraged and supported to be involved in all aspects of decision making regarding their residential care, as well as to maintain their independence and involvement in community and social activities. 

By offering a comprehensive range of care options, the concept of “ageing in place” removes the need for any subsequent move to another facility. Cadorna House is equipped to provide responsive and flexible care in line with each individual resident’s changing care needs, aiming to allow residents to age in place in his/her own room, with all necessary care and services brought to the resident.

There are no restrictions on visiting hours. Residents are welcome to have relatives and friends visit any time at their convenience. Guests are also welcome to stay and share a meal at Cadorna House, however whenever possible our kitchen staff appreciate advance notice of this for catering purposes.

We currently have vacancy for full nursing home care, palliative care and also respite options. Low-income/assest options are also available requiring no upfront payment / refundable accommodation deposit. All fees are negotiable according to individual circumstances.
