On the countdown to the opening of our brand new aged care facility in Hervey Bay, we are very pleased to announce we are now accepting early applications for residential care.
Opening in spring this year, the facility is ideally situated close to Stocklands shopping centre, and features three levels of private single rooms, including two secure wings for people living with dementia.
The facility has a family focus and incorporates a range of activities for residents to enjoy with visiting family and friends of all ages. From lawn bowls and putt putt to a centrally located coffee shop overlooking a children’s playground, all surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens with walking paths, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Whether you choose a room nearest to the ground for easy access, or on the top levels for spectacular views, you’ll be looked after 24 hours a day by our care team of nurses, carers, allied health professionals, cooks and support services staff.
Our facility will offer both temporary residential respite care and permanent residential aged care, and our specialised rooms in secure areas for people living with dementia are available at no extra cost.
Rooms & prices
All of our rooms are private, single rooms with an ensuite and balcony. We offer specialised dementia care at no extra cost and you can pay for your accommodation with a daily accommodation payment (known as a DAP) or a refundable accommodation deposit (known as a RAD).
