Bishop Tyrrell Place
Welcome to Bishop Tyrrell Place, a residential aged care facility.
Bishop Tyrrell Place, named in honour of the first Bishop of Newcastle Diocese, is part of Storm Retirement Villages Inc.
The newest addition to the Manning's aged care facilities, Bishop Tyrrell Place at Cundletown (Taree) has been designed to offer a new level of stylish aged care living.
A unit of Storm Retirement Villages, Bishop Tyrrell Place is a vibrant hub brimming with options including individualised lifestyle programs, "table d'hôte" dining options, specialised activities and group excursions ensuring that it is the pinnacle of aged care living.
With hotel style services, spacious ensuite rooms, first class amenities and high technology equipment to assist in daily care needs, therapy and recreation, it is not surprising that residents feel they are entering a resort rather than an aged care facility.
It was named in memory of her parents Jane Elizabeth and Edward Storm, who operated a jewellery business in Taree for many years.
With some assistance from the Commonwealth Government, a hostel of 50 beds was built in 1990, followed by 18 self-care villas, on land acquired by the Trustees of the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle in Princess Street, Cundletown.
Since then a 55 bed Nursing Home has been added and an additional 2 self-care villas were built. A Dementia Specific Unit was completed in 2004 with 12 beds.

The "Care Farm" is provided because it has proven to improve the quality of life of our residents. A unique feature of Bishop Tyrrell Place is the "Care Farm", located within the grounds of the facility for the enjoyment of our residents. Flower, herb and vegetable gardens are close at hand for residents to tend to or just look at.
We have animals such as chooks, goats, a miniature pig, several very tame alpacas, ducks and therapy dogs.
All of this is situated in a picturesque orchard setting with lovely rural views, and is available for residents to entertain guests and visitors outdoors.
Before anyone can enter residential care, there is an assessment process to be carried out by the local Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) which states the requirement of the prospective resident as either high care or low care. The ACAT can be contacted at 56 Albert Street, Taree, Phone (02) 6592 6900, or through your own doctor.
If the prospective resident is for discharge from a hospital, the hospital's discharge planner will arrange this.
