Quambie Park Waroona has been providing aged care services to country Australians for over 30 years. The organisation was founded in 1985 through a bequest from local community member, Mr Tom Corker.
Quambie Park operates under a continuum of service model, commonly referred to in the aged care sector as “aging in place.” Specifically, Quambie Park provides:
Home Care Packages
To assist older people to remain living in their own home for longer, our qualified staff work with the client to create a care package to meet their own specific needs. For example:
40 clients receive up to 10 hours per person per week of service.
Retirement Village Living
Quambie Park Retirement Village residents are predominantly older people who are no longer able to live independently at home, even with the support of the Home Care Packages. Our retirement village offers a semi-independent lifestyle in a secure environment with supports provided to make life easier. This includes emergency call-out systems, security infrastructure and alerts and emergency medical assistance. As a direct result of the low socio-economic status of the community we serve, Quambie Park operates the retirement village on a cost-recovery basis.
Residential Aged Care Facility (Pam Corker House)
Quambie Park provides the highest level of residential aged care services. This includes a contemporary best-practice secure wing for people with dementia or other mental health illness.
The residential facility provides 24/7 services to 45 residents at any one point in time.
