Exciting new era for Carinity aged care
Brisbane’s newest community for seniors heralds an exciting new era in aged care – while paying homage to the history of Brookfield and a stalwart family of Queensland’s Baptist community.
The Residences at Brookfield Green, where peace and tranquillity are a way of life, is now open to residents. The $30-million environmentally sustainable development promises to deliver the best in aged care – and enhance the legacy of Carinity caring for older Queenslanders for almost 70 years.
Brookfield Green is the new name for the $60-million master-planned re-development of Carinity’s Gold Creek Road property nestled in the hills of Brookfield, a serene semi-rural community just 16km west of Brisbane city. The Residences is the first stage offering 96 hotel-style luxury rooms with private ensuites and state-of-the-art care facilities.
The new building’s design features bright, open-plan public spaces to create the feel of a stylish contemporary hotel, rather than a traditional residential aged care centre. Most of all, The Residences delivers stunning views and full-service care in a community for seniors unlike any other.
Utilising solar energy power, The Residences has been integrated into the local environment through smart energy-efficiency design and lighting and a focus on waste management and water minimisation.
The building complements Carinity’s existing aged care and retirement community which opened as “Resthaven” in 1972 on land acquired by noted Baptist contributor Samuel Dart in 1869.
“We’ve already built a wonderful community at Brookfield. By redeveloping the site, we are able to give our existing and future residents the best care and lifestyle possible,” Carinity CEO Jon Campbell says.
“Residents will have exclusive access to a private dining room, café, salon and chapel and receive specialist care from visiting health professionals. They will enjoy delicious meals prepared daily by our on-site chef, take part in social and wellness programs, and soak up the tranquillity within the native gardens.
“Brookfield Green also features world-class memory-assisted living spaces, palliative care and respite services, ensuring around-the-clock support tailored to each residents’ individual needs.”
Carinity has provided care to seniors at the site for almost 50 years. Over the coming years ongoing development will see retirement villas and supported living suites added, delivering a new era in seniors living in the western suburbs.
“Carinity combines consumer needs, the latest technology and learnings from seven decades in the aged care industry to deliver excellent support for ageing Queenslanders. Our vision is to build communities where people are loved, accepted and supported to reach their full potential,” Jon says.
“With the recent refurbishment of our large, ensuited Miller rooms, we now have marvellous aged care rooms priced from $375,000 and a range of options for pensioners.”
