About Us


Arete Health Care holds the distinction of being the pioneering Vietnamese Nursing home in Australia. Since its establishment in the early 1990s, Arete Healthcare has been dedicated to providing exceptional care for all our elderly residents, devoting abundant time and valuable resources towards this noble cause.

The ‘Arete’ Name

Arete Health Care derives its name from the Ancient Greek Goddess Areth, embodying the ideals of virtue, excellence, goodness, and compassion through her noble deeds. It is from these remarkable traits that we have formulated our core values, which serve as the cornerstone for delivering patient-centered care to all residents within our facilities.
