Located in the leafy street known as 56 Meadow Crescent, Meadowbank, is Medi Aids large block of independent living units. These are made available to elderly residents with financial difficulties. There is no entry fee, simply a modest weekly rental. This is largely recoverable from the "government rental allowance" (Apply Centrelink).

The brick and tiled building is comfy, with pleasant gardens, and plenty of parking at the rear. Many residents have their own flower garden, so there is generally a splendid array of flowers and shrubs. External maintenance is carried out by others.
