About BaptistCare Mid Richmond Centre

Tucked away in a quiet corner of the Richmond Valley at Coraki, Mid Richmond Centre backs onto beautiful green scenery. It’s a place of peaceful solitude, where the curious neighbouring cows who come to the fence add an extra element of fun to our home environment. A single-storey building that’s easy to navigate, our farm-feel home provides 32 general care rooms, 17 dementia care rooms and one dedicated respite room.

Mid Richmond is an open home, full of natural light, panoramic views, intimate courtyards and picturesque gardens. It’s a space made for sharing – and we welcome you, your family and your friends to be a part of our country community. Mid Richmond Centre is your special place to enjoy.
