About PresCare Townsville

Whilst Protea might be brand new, PresCare has been a leader in aged care in Queensland since 1929 and we bring 90 years of experience with us as we open this new facility.

Moving into residential care is a big step, not only for the older person, but also for their family and friends. That’s why we focus, not only on providing the highest quality of care, but also to helping our residents stay connected. We want our residents to stay connected to the people who are important to them and have created a range of spaces to spend time together including a spacious roof top garden and large terraces on each of its five levels.

Memories are precious and often connected to treasured items. We invite our residents to bring those special things with them that will help them to feel more at home.

We also want our residents to remain connected to the activities they love. Our dedicated Activities Coordinator will take time to get to know the interests of each resident and work to ensure they can continue to pursue them. Our Activities Centre offers a range of programs to assist our residents to remain active and engaged.

The health and wellbeing of our residents is our number one priority. As well as offering 24 hour nursing care, Protea has a Day Therapy Centre that enables residents to connect with specialists who will assist them with their individual needs.

Our Pastoral Care team are here to connect with residents and assist them with their emotional and spiritual wellbeing. They take time to build relationships with each resident and can connect residents with religious services or simply offer a listening ear.
