"This is one of the best models of dementia care in an assisted environment that I've seen." - Ita Buttrose.

Group Homes Australia - Queens Park exudes a warm, safe and friendly environment for 6-10 residents. Each resident receives personal, tailored care and lives with dignity and a sense of purpose.

The model is the first of its kind in Australia and focuses on creating a non-institutional way of living that emphasises the resident’s abilities rather than their disabilities.

Group Homes Australia - Queens Park looks and feels like a traditional house on a traditional street. The home is part of the broader community, with residents living together in a group home.

All this allows the community to recognise that older people have priorities beyond merely staying alive and living longer.

Group Homes Australia - Queens Park has trained staff on site 24/7, a high ratio of staff to residents – and is the very opposite of the institutionalised care model. Group Homes Australia - Queens Park offers respite, permanent stay, end of life and high care.

Staff are dementia and aged care trained nurses and they are referred to as Homemakers. Registered Nurses are also available around the clock as well as a full allied health team who visit each home as required.

Homemakers support and assist residents with their daily needs and activities; they encourage residents to be engaged in shopping, cooking, baking, gardening – the full range of gentle tasks that bring a sense of purpose in a normal home. There are no call bells or nursing trolleys, no rigid routines around waking up, meal times, singalongs or Bingo. Instead, this new place celebrates life.
