    All aged care facilities should be based on the model of Castra, it provides diversity and inclusion for all residents and the staff are second to none. The energy is positive and facilities beautiful, you feel the warmth and care that is being provided to all. Castra has provided my mum a home to age with grace and dignity, when her memory has taken a back seat. Thank you to all the staff, what beautiful souls you are. Castra a place for the living.
