Rosehaven Mansfield provides nonclinical respite and end-of-life care to people with a life limiting illness.

We are a 5-bedroom guest home set on 4 and half acres of established gardens, a real home away from home, walking distance to the main street, hospital, and GP clinics.

We have over 80 active volunteers

Rosehaven works in conjunction with our local hospital, Benalla Palliative Care and our Visiting Nursing service to provide a supported 'home away from home' end of life option.  This takes the pressure of our local health services where extra support is needed for the guest and familiy.  

Only 10% of care when people are actively dying requires clinical care.

With our model at Rosehaven we allow people to continue to live until their very last breath. Families are encouraged to stay, their animals are welcome, we can decorate their room, or even paint it in colour of choice.
