Bella Chara, our 60-bed supported care residential facility, opened in July 2009 and provides high standard apartment-style accommodation and care in the beautiful contemporary surroundings of the Geelong area.
Bella Chara is a welcoming yet intimate environment that offers individuals the privacy of their own front door with the safety of being in a community. This is the quality of supportive care that Cultura offers its residents.
The facility is architect designed and purpose-built with spacious rooms, ensuites, verandahs and patios, all geared towards making it the best supported care Geelong can offer its older residents.
Bella Chara also offers beautiful respite rooms with private ensuites and balconies, with around the clock care provided by professional staff. Bella Chara respite residents have access to Cultura’s wellbeing program, including bus trips and access to all Cultura facilities, including the piazza, chapel and café.

“When we were looking to bring mum from Melbourne to Geelong, luckily we were recommended to consider Bella Chara.It is not an easy decision to move out of the family home and we know that mum accepted it with our best interests at heart.
What we didn’t appreciate until after she made the move, was how important it is to be among your peers and the social connection that this brings.
Some six or so years later she continues to be very happy and clearly feels safe and secure.
It is our absolute pleasure to see her continuing to enjoy life. We feel fortunate to have found our way into this community”.
Meredith Crittenden, daughter of Bella Chara resident.
