Hear From Our Residents

My mum moved in just before Covid-19 hit. I couldn’t ask for better care and attention to detail afforded to her. Many thanks to the managers, nurses, staff and kitchen for everything you do. It really is much appreciated by our family.

Tess Beck (Annerley Aged Care Residence)

Staff always happy, greet you with a smile. My mother, a resident for the last 4 years has always been cared and looked after exceptionally well, she is contented and has no negative feelings for any of the carers what is most important.

Craig Appleby (Labrador Aged Care Residence)

I have both my parents living at TriCare Toowoomba in a companion room. They are very settled and happy, love the care they get from all the staff, the activities and the food. They don’t want to be anywhere else. I have found the property nice and clean, uncluttered, welcoming for everyone (including the family dog), well maintained outdoor garden areas, and the staff are like family.

Frequently Asked Questions

An aged care home (also known as a nursing home or residential aged care facility) provides residential accommodation with health care for seniors and frail who can no longer continue living in their own home.

The most common reasons can include illness, disability, loneliness, an emergency, as a result of increasing pressure on their carer, or because it is no longer possible to manage at home without help.

Residents in aged care homes get assistance with day-to-day tasks like meals, cleaning and laundry. Personal care like showering and going to the toilet, dressing and grooming and 24-hour nursing care from qualified nursing staff, including managing your medicines, continence care, treatment and care of wounds.

Many aged care homes also provide quite complex and specialised types of health and medical care, including dementia care, palliative care, and rehabilitation.

The Australian Government subsidises a range of aged care homes in Australia. This means affordable care and support services can be accessed by those who need it. The subsidies are paid directly to the aged care home.

The amount of funding that a home receives is based on:

  • an assessment of your care needs by the home (using a tool called the Aged Care Funding Instrument or ACFI)
  • how much you can afford to contribute to the cost of your care and accommodation (using an income and assets assessment) To get the funding, subsidised aged care homes have to meet Aged Care Quality Standards to ensure quality care and services are provided.

To find out if you are eligible for any of the Government-supported aged care services, call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 or visit www.myagedcare.gov.au

Yes. We provide a wide variety of activities including bingo, games, art & music therapy, news reading, exercises, Intergenerational music program with kids, outings, community visitors and church services.

Family and friends are welcome to join in activities with residents.

In standard residential care, the Australian Government and Centrelink set a basic daily fee based on an individual assessment of a resident’s income and assets.

Providers are bound by these determinations. A financial assessment of an individual’s circumstances will be conducted by Centrelink prior to (or shortly after) entry into a residential aged care facility.

Additional fees and charges apply for extra service Residences, where residents are able to choose lifestyle extras and hotel-like services.
