Located on the main thoroughfare between Redland Bay and Brisbane City in the bayside suburb of Thornlands, PresCare Lake Sherrin is a residential facility providing full-time care for 48 residents (including 12 dementia care and one respite bed).

Situated on picturesque acreage, PresCare Lake Sherrin is surrounded by beautifully lush gardens, a lake, and abundant wildlife, creating an atmosphere that is peaceful and relaxed.

In a facility comprising four adjoining lodges, accommodation consists of single rooms, each with their own en-suite.  And because we want our care recipients to always feel very much at home, we encourage families to decorate their rooms with personal items – things like photos, paintings, a favourite throw rug, music, a pot plant or flowers.

At Lake Sherrin, there are two important things that drive what we do: providing a caring and friendly atmosphere where residents are involved in decisions relating to their health, care and social needs; and making sure that our care and services are based on the needs, preferences and choices of the people in our care.

Meals are served in community dining rooms, in a resident’s room, or can be enjoyed with family members in private nooks. There is some flexibility in meal times, particularly breakfast.

Personal items are sent to the main laundry on a daily basis

Care and services at PresCare Lake Sherrin are provided by qualified, highly trained and skilled staff.  Our registered nurses are trained to provide palliative care as well as general nursing care, working closely with general practitioners, geriatricians, medical specialists, nurse practitioners and allied health staff.  This ensures that those who prefer to stay in the home when unwell are able to do so instead of being admitted to hospital.
