The Allambe residential care facility at Nudgee provides hostel accommodation for people aging with intellectual and multiple disabilities. Each residential home has been designed around the individual needs of the people who live here – the residents. It is their home after all, and everything we do is for their comfort, wellbeing and happiness. Light filled communal areas bring people together during the day, for meals and social activities.
Plentiful shared spaces indoors and in the gardens, allow for smaller gatherings or just a place to relax in peace. Highly trained and qualified staff throughout our facilities include care managers, registered nurses, enrolled nurses, nurse practitioner, physiotherapist, specialist dementia care, personal carers and support staff. We manage a broad range of care needs to provide quality individual care to our residents.
