Boonah

We are investing in the future of our existing Fassifern Aged Care Service and Retirement Village to secure Boonah and the Scenic Rim as a location of choice for seniors care.

The new 64-bed residential aged care service will eventually replace the existing Fassifern nursing home. The current 40 bed nursing home has a number of limitations restricting its ability to accommodate growing needs.

A lake will be included, partly to manage stormwater issues to allow the residential aged care facility to be built. An existing dam will be filled to enable the development.

Completion of construction of the building is planned for late-July 2020. We are aiming to welcome residents late-August 2020.

Residents and staff in the existing nursing home will be able to move to the new facility. Additional staff will be needed given the increase in size of the new accommodation and we will create new opportunities for qualified health professionals, registered nurses, personal care workers and hospitality staff.

Cottage model of care

We are adopting a 'cottage' model of care across all of our new residential aged care developments including the Fassifern service.

The cottage model has been very successful in creating a warm, home-like atmosphere with separate areas, while providing as much care and support as needed by residents.

The main lounge, living room and dining space in each cottage will provide a number of smaller spaces for people to relax with family and friends, along with a quiet reading area.

Our integrated community model

Our integrated community model (referred to as a Campus) brings together the care, church community and support services to work collaboratively for the uplift of on-campus residents and the broader community.

Churches of Christ in Queensland and Churches of Christ Care operate a number of services through the region which are delivering high quality support for residents and the local community.

For the local community, our aged care services located at Boonah and Kalbar, retirement living units and Home and Community Care Service provide support. We aim to accommodate all those needing care or support as soon as possible following initial enquiry.

Boonah Church of Christ is also active in our community along with our Mission Action Partner who supports community and missional activities. Altogether we work collaboratively for the uplift of residents and the community.

 

A look ahead

When the new service is open, the existing residential aged care service will  close. Residents, staff and volunteers will be able to relocate to the new accommodation. We will also continue to assess the demand for further development in the region.
