Queensland aged care and retirement living provider Carinity is set to open the first stage of its Brownesholme residential aged care community in Highfields near Toowoomba this month.
The $32 million aged care community includes a 96-bed aged care home adjacent to the existing Carinity Brownesholme retirement village, which is home to 80 seniors.
The residential aged care home is on track to welcome its first residents later this month, Carinity said in a statement.
As previously reported, the new aged care home is stage one of a $67 million expansion of the Carinity’s seniors’ community.
Carinity aged care regional manager Larissa Gear said she was looking forward to welcoming new residents to the community.
“The Brownesholme retirement village has been a much-loved part of the fabric of Highfields for many years and we can’t wait for older seniors or those with higher care needs to have their own lovely and welcoming community to enjoy together,” Ms Gear said.
“This will be Carinity’s twelfth residential aged care community around Queensland and with its gorgeous semi-rural setting we’re sure it will be embraced by seniors who grew up on farms or lived in regional areas,” she said.
The community is being built by Paynters.
Carinity anticipates 90 staff will work at the new aged care community.
