Beaumont Care opens rural facility

Queensland-aged care provider Beaumont Care has opened a new 80-bed residential aged care facility in Wamuran, a rural town in the Moreton Bay region.

Queensland-aged care provider Beaumont Care has opened a new 80-bed residential aged care facility  in Wamuran, a rural town in the Moreton Bay region.

Beaumont Care Wamuran consists of four separate but interconnected homes on a 40-acre property, 15 kilometres west of Caboolture.

Each home includes single bedrooms with ensuites, community lounge rooms, dining areas and courtyards.

It’s the provider’s 6th aged care home and was built with a $4 million Federal Government grant from the Aged Care Approvals Round.

Beaumont Care owner and director Linda Beaumont said there was a huge demand for aged care facilities in regional Australia including Moreton Bay.

“In the wake of the aged care royal commission, many aged care facilities in our regions are doing it tough.

“At a time when aged care as an industry is struggling, Beaumont Care – with support from the Australian Government – is making a conscious and important decision to invest in much needed aged care in regional areas like Wamuran,” Ms Beaumont said.

Ms Beaumont said the Wamuran home is unique due to its idyllic country location surrounded by farmland and views of the Glasshouse Mountains.

“Wamuran will appeal to people who want to spend their days looking out windows and from wide verandas, taking in the mountain views over strawberry and pineapple farms, and enjoying the feeling of plenty of green and space,” Ms Beaumont said.

Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians Richard Colbeck attended the launch event, which took place on 12 March, to officially open the facility.

The launch was also attended by members of the Beaumont Care team, government officials and the local community.

  1. Linda beaumont runs great facilities and her commitment to the aged and for the staff she employ is above standard?

  2. Can’t help but wonder if you will receive this message Linda. Great to see you are doing so well. I now live on the GC & sadly lost John in April ’21. He had been in care for 6 years with dementia .. the absolute love of my life.
    Life goes on but there’s not a second in any day that I don’t think of him. You are probably thinking who is this woman . I hope you remember me. ?
