Life is designed to be nurturing and fun at our Blue Care Kenmore Aged Care Facility, which sits amid bushland with views to Mt Coot-tha. Comprehensive care, therapies and creative pursuits are planned to ensure you get the most out of living here.
Our Tarry Brae and Iona buildings have long been popular with locals and an active group of volunteers adds to the happy ambiance. The positivity of staff and visiting entertainers is infectious. It’s hard to be anything but smiley after a meeting with roving entertainer Jane, who visits both sites weekly. Her bright personality and clowning skills are on show as she jokes and chats her way around the centre. You'll also be spoilt for relaxation options, with biweekly music therapy classes and fortnightly visits by an aromatherapist. Or get creative with our popular fortnightly art therapy sessions. And if you’re fond of four-legged friends, there are regular visits by playful dogs eager to soak up pats and compliments, as well as a monthly horse therapy session.
We are located in the heart of Kenmore, with public transport at the gate, and just five minutes from shopping centres, services and amenities. Our professional and highly experienced staff provide 24-hour support, ensuring you receive the highest-quality care and services available. Iona, our higher care needs centre, regularly welcomes a specialist palliative and aged care massage practitioner. You can also enjoy some of your favourite tunes, as Iona subscribes to the Silver Memories reflective radio station, which broadcasts music from the 1930s to the 1970s.
We hope you will consider Blue Care Kenmore Aged Care Facility as your home.
