Loreto Nursing Home was established close to Saint Patrick’s Convent, The Strand, the original residence of the Sisters of Mercy in Townsville to accommodate ageing and frail sisters. In the early 1980’s, it was extended to become licensed accommodation for lay women as well as sisters. In 2009, it was rebuilt as a new facility at its present address on Fulham Road, Pimlico. Because of its small size compared with many other aged care facilities, Loreto offers an intimate atmosphere with individualized care.
