Our Story


Vietnam Veterans Keith Payne VC Hostel has been delivering the highest level of personalised, 24-hour aged care to its residents since 1991.

While our heritage is built upon caring for those who served so bravely, we are a community that also welcomes non-veterans to make their home with us.

Located only 5-minutes from the ocean in Noraville on the northern end of the NSW Central Coast, surrounded by lush bush surrounds and spacious grounds, the facility provides the most peaceful setting for residents to share their stories with neighbours, family and loved ones.

We’re a fully accredited, not-for-profit aged care community that caters for up to 76 residents on either a full-time or temporary respite care basis.

Our care team provide 24/7 Registered Nurse access, with our capabilities further increased through the addition of new person centred software that enhances communication, documentation and connection between our staff and residents.

Since its establishment, Vietnam Veterans has evolved into a multi-purpose residential aged care community. Our residents’ quality of life is top priority. For this reason, we have grown to embrace the whole community through the hosting of lifetime events such weddings, funerals, family occasions and corporate functions.


To provide professional, quality residential care and services to the aged, disabled and members of the general community.
