About The Vales, Pennington

The Vales, home for the elderly in Pennington, was established in 2010 by Val Ball, a Grey’s Trained Nursing Sister since 1983, and her husband Les.

A very special place, The Vales is situated in the tranquil coastal village of Pennington where residents enjoy the peace and harmony of the surrounds which flows through the gardens of our upmarket facility. Interest and participation in the garden is always a topic of conversation.
We have separate homes and garden areas for both our Assisted Living Facility and our Frail Care Facility.

The Vales is privileged to enjoy our resident pets – 4 cats and Geza the dog – who have a special place and love the comfort of our residents’ beds and laps.

The Vales is one of a few homes that welcomes and is specifically designed for Dementia and Alzheimer’s care. Our Frail Care home is specially created with this in mind and allows for easy flow of activities and catering to the needs of our residents.

Our commitment to each resident and their family is to uphold the dignity of the elderly by providing a caring, supportive and protective surrounding. Each resident is a part of The Vales family and is treated as such.

Compassionate staff provide competent and personalized nursing care to each resident and support for family members as we understand the supportive role each family member plays.
