Quality care in a serene and secure environment – that’s the TriCare Toowoomba Aged Care difference. Centrally located in Queensland’s “Garden City”, TriCare’s Toowoomba Aged Care Residence is home to a small cohort of residents, who enjoy the provision of high-quality care, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Depending on the needs of the individual, we offer short term or Respite Care, Permanent Care, Secure Dementia Care, and Palliative Care options, for singles and couples. Below, we’ll explore some of the things that set our Toowoomba Aged Care community apart.
Toowoomba is synonymous with stunningly beautiful gardens and our Aged Care community certainly lives up to the city’s leafy reputation. Our residents enjoy our appealing landscaped outdoor areas, with wide paths and plenty of shaded areas to gather with friends and family or sit and enjoy the breeze. Even those residents with high care needs can avail themselves of the private garden attached to the Secure Memory Support Unit. For those who are able to venture out with family or friends, Toowoomba’s world-renowned Queen’s Park Botanic Gardens are less than five minutes away by car.
In our mountain location, the weather can be variable, so all our private rooms come with air conditioning as standard. That way, our residents can beat the heat or keep it cosy, depending on the season. We also have the benefit of an on-site Chef, who takes the time to create seasonal menus that keep the tastebuds happy and raise the spirits.
You can rest assured that your loved one is safe and looked after at our Toowoomba Aged Care Residence. With nursing staff (including Registered Nurses) on site around the clock and a team made up of talented, compassionate Personal Carers and support staff, there is always someone close by to ensure that our residents can pursue the activities they enjoy while their care needs are seen to. Residents’ private rooms also feature an emergency call system, so help is always at hand if the unexpected occurs.
Hear first-hand from Toowoomba resident, Rosemarie Winter, as she describes the care she receives as well as what the social life is like at the Residence.
For individuals experiencing acute cognitive decline, our Secure Memory Support Unit is purpose built to allow freedom of movement, without fear of harm. That way, our residents can engage in activities that bring them pleasure and relaxation, and you can also relax, knowing that their living environment is safe and secure.
At TriCare Toowoomba, we know that providing quality care takes a village. We draw on the expertise of a range of visiting medical and allied health practitioners, including GPs, physiotherapists, podiatrists, speech and diversional therapists, and pharmacy services to ensure that, whatever your loved one’s care needs, these are easily available to them.
Home is where the heart is, and when it comes to Aged Care, our community in Toowoomba aims to feel like family. A major part of providing care is ensuring that our residents can pursue their interests, interact on a social level, and enjoy the company of fellow residents, staff, family, and friends. Our Lifestyle Co-ordinator works hard to provide opportunities for residents to nourish mind, body, and soul, with regular exercise classes, craft and garden therapy and even interactive pet therapy, which is always a big hit.
Our on-site library allows our residents to lose themselves in a good book, or share their favourite authors, while our hair salon keeps everyone feeling good and looking great. We like to keep our residents connected to the wider community too, so regular outings to favourite local haunts, or day trips further afield, are an important part of our social calendar.
Of course, sometimes you just want to spend time with your nearest and dearest. For this reason, our Toowoomba location includes a private dining room, so that birthdays or other special occasions can be celebrated on a more personal scale. It’s the smaller touches like these that really make our Toowoomba Aged Care Residence feel like home.
If you are interested in making the move to a quality Aged Care community, the friendly and helpful staff at TriCare Toowoomba would love to show you how we can exceed your expectations.
