About McKenzie

We are a family, creating
communities with heart

When we first started in aged care in 1998, the McKenzie family imagined creating what we’d want for those we loved. Our vision was to build warm, fun and welcoming communities where residents received the very best in care, and people were not only cared for but cared about. Today, even though we have grown to become one of Australia’s leading aged care and retirement providers, each of our communities remains true to our family’s vision – from the staff we choose, to the way we design our facilities, to the laughter and joy we share with our residents and their families.

An Australian family company

We are an Australian family company, and the family directors work within the business every day, playing an active role in the operations and development of all current and future McKenzie residences. This ensures that every key decision is aligned with our family’s mission, operating Cornerstones and deep commitment to providing the very best care and support to older people in our local communities. 

At the end of the day, the most important thing of all is that as a family business caring for families, people are always at the heart of everything we do.
