PresCare Sherwood Place

Situated in the leafy Brisbane suburb of Sherwood for more than 20 years, Sherwood Place has been supporting people to be socially connected and to live independently the way they choose.  A community-based organisation, Sherwood Place provides a range of Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) services – including respite, allied health and domestic assistance – to people aged 65 and over, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 and over, and their carers.

Social outings

Weekly excursions are conducted to a variety of locations around South East Queensland, including museums, parks and art galleries. This is usually accompanied by a meal or coffee.

Meals

Delicious morning tea and nutritious hot lunches are provided, and enjoyed together in our dining room. Our menus are updated regularly, in consultation with a dietician to ensure they are balanced, nutritious and meet all dietary requirements

Transportation

If you live in our local community, we will collect you from your home in the morning and take you home in the afternoon. Bookings are essential.

Fees and charges

Sherwood Place is covered by the government funded Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) for eligible clients. However, fees and charges may apply for some activities, dependant on the funding that you have been approved for.

Private payment for clients who are not eligible for this funding is also available.

Home Care Package (HCP) funding may also meet your respite needs, in collaboration with your HCP provider.

We welcome personal visits to Sherwood Place, to discuss your specific needs and take a tour of the centre. To arrange your visit, please contact Site Coordinator, Brooke Nolan.

PresCare Yaralla Place

Conveniently located right in the centre of Maryborough, and adjacent to Maryborough Hospital, Yaralla Place is a 96-bed residential aged care facility. There are three separate wings, each with 32 individual rooms inclusive of a 16-bed dementia care specific area.  In the interests of fostering new friendships and a community, each house has its own dining and lounge rooms as well as a kitchenette for residents to use when they have the need. Smaller lounge areas are also provided where care recipients and their families can meet in private.

All rooms have a view overlooking the garden, and care recipients are able to access covered outdoor BBQ areas where families are always welcome to enjoy time with their loved one in our care.

At Yarralla Place, one thing we are passionate about is creating an environment where the people in our care feel as though they are living in a home away from home. To this end, we actively encourage families to decorate rooms with personal  items– things like photos, paintings, a favourite throw rug, music, a pot plant or flowers.

All meals are cooked on site and served in dining rooms to allow care recipients to remain connected with each other on a regular basis. But if preferred, a care recipient can also choose to take their meals in their own room. Family members are always welcome to share a meal with their loved one, and private nooks are available for these occasions. Talk to our care staff or receptionist, and they’ll make all of the arrangements for you.

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

Care and services are provided by qualified, highly trained and skilled staff. Registered nurses are trained to provide palliative care as well as general nursing care, and they work closely with general practitioners, geriatricians, medical specialists, nurse practitioners and allied health staff.

Using a model of ‘Transforming Care at the Bedside’, Yaralla Place takes a pro-active approach to care, whereby staff conduct regular checks in anticipation of addressing the needs of care recipients before they feel they have to ask for it.

PresCare Groundwater Lodge

Situated on leafy acreage in the Granville suburb of Maryborough, Groundwater Lodge is set in a relaxed country environment that creates a sense of peace and tranquillity.

With individual rooms and private en-suites providing residential care for 60 (including 20 beds in a dementia specific area), accommodation at Groundwater Lodge is arranged in small wings to create a feeling of neighbourhood and community.  Walkways are provided throughout for ease of access to central courtyards as well as to outdoor BBQ areas where families are always welcome to enjoy time with their loved one in our care.

Knowing how important it is for our care recipients to be comfortable and feel like they are living in a home away from home, we encourage families to bring in personal items to decorate their rooms– things like photos, paintings, a favourite throw rug, music, a pot plant or flowers.

Meals are cooked on site and served in dining rooms allowing care recipients to connect with each other.  But if preferred, a care recipient can also choose to take their meals in their own room.
