A typical day at The Good Shepherd Nursing Home in Townsville is designed to provide residents with a comfortable and engaging environment that promotes their physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. In this article, we will take a closer look at what a day in the life at The Good Shepherd Home might look like for a resident. We’ll explore the various aspects of life at our caring and supportive facility, from daily routines and activities to social interactions and meals.


The day typically starts with our residents waking up and getting ready for the day. You can be assisted with tasks like bathing, grooming, and dressing by our friendly and attentive caregivers if necessary. The Good Shepherd Home aims to provide nursing home care that is tailored to each resident’s specific needs and preferences. Once you are ready, you can head to the dining room for breakfast or choose to have breakfast in your own room.

Activities and Social Time

Residents can participate in various activities throughout the day that are organised by our Leisure and Lifestyle Officers. These can include games, exercise classes, arts and crafts, music therapy and off-site extensions. The Good Shepherd Nursing Home creates a monthly activity calendar that residents can choose. Residents can participate in as many or as few activities as they like, depending on your interests and energy levels. We value the importance of social interactions in the lives of our residents and provide ample opportunities for you to connect with each other and build meaningful relationships.


As the day winds down, residents can watch TV in the communal lounge or retire to their own room maybe for some quiet reading. Residents are able to access the Wi-Fi to watch Subscriber TV or engage with family and friends via social media.

The Good Shepherd Home takes great care in preparing and serving nutritious meals to our residents. Our team takes into account any dietary restrictions or preferences when planning the menu and residents can enjoy meals in the dining hall or have them delivered to your room.
