Opal HealthCare welcomes its first residents into the recently completed Wallarah Point facility.
The 123-bed facility offers single rooms with ensuite and the option of a companion room. Situated at Toukley, on the NSW central coast the facility is designed to offer affordable care, within a tranquil coastal environment.
Opal HealthCare’s Regional General Manager, NSW Northern, Marie Barter, said the beautiful new care home is in a stunning location and captures sweeping views of the lakes and nearby beaches.
“We’re delighted to be welcoming our very first residents to Wallarah Point.” said Ms Barter.
“Our home provides a safe and secure environment and the building design incorporates accessible living spaces that are easy to navigate, including state-of-the-art security technology to give our residents and their loved ones peace of mind.
“Our care is focused on our residents’ individual needs and preferences and our team of dedicated and compassionate registered nurses and carers is on-site 24 hours day,” said Ms Barter.
Mrs Rose Fethers (pictured) is one of our first residents to call Wallarah Point home. Born in Sydney, Mrs Fethers moved to the Central Coast with her husband to enjoy their retirement. Matching her name ‘Rose’, Mrs Fethers was born with a love for flowers and followed her passion to become a florist from the age of 15.
“I’m so happy to move into Wallarah Point and I can’t believe they have a flower market here!! I’ve loved flowers ever since I was a young girl and on my first day here, had a wonderful time making a beautiful arrangement,” said Mrs Fethers.
Ms Barter described how the Wallarah Point team is looking forward to growing community connections in the area, supporting our other care communities in Norah Head, Kanwal, Killarney Vale and Berkeley Vale.
“We believe staying connected to our local community is essential to providing the best care for our residents. Our aim is for our residents to participate in community life and maintain meaningful relationships with family and loved ones,” said Ms Barter.
“We also believe everyone should have something to look forward to every day and we enable a lifestyle where residents can enjoy their hobbies and interests, continue to learn and try new things and participate in meaningful activities.
“Our in-home chef prepares meals from scratch each day using the freshest ingredients, and creates seasonal menus with input from residents so that they can enjoy the food they like to eat. Our gardens and shaded courtyards provide ample space for outdoor activities, with sensory gardens and raisedvegetable garden beds. Our expansive alfresco dining areas take full advantage of our amazing outdoor areas and views,” said Ms Barter.
