Brightwater Care Group

A part of the Western Australia community since 1901, Brightwater has developed an enviable reputation for service, flexibility and innovation making us one of Western Australia’s best known and largest providers of quality residential, rehabilitation and community care for people with disabilities and older people.

Brightwater also has an extensive Home Care service that is available to people of all ages in need of support in their own homes. We also offer Transition Care which is temporary assistance after a time in hospital or whilst you are looking for a permanent residential home.

A period of dynamic change and development over the past two decades has seen Brightwater grow and diversify. Brightwater has developed Linen and Catering businesses that provide quality services to its own homes and also to other similar organisations, hotels, mine sites and hospitals throughout Western Australia. Being not-for-profit means any surplus income is returned directly to the organisation to improve facilities and services, something that Brightwater is very passionate about.

We also have an Award winning over 55s community, Kingsway Court, specifically developed and designed to meet the needs of over 55s and retired West Australians.

Brightwaters’ team of experienced health professionals continue to raise standards of support through constant personal and professional improvement, dedication and partnership with clients, families, professionals, governments, suppliers and the community.
