Wheatfields Inc. is a specialised residential aged care service provider, delivering on-going accommodation and respite support with individualised care to the elderly. A community owned, not for profit organisation, Wheatfields is administered by a Board of Management elected from members of the community.
At Wheatfields, our mission is to serve older people, responding to their needs through the provision of quality services and accommodation. These services will provide an innovative range of residential based services to older people, which enable residents to age in a safe and dignified manner and to have a strong sense of self worth.
Located in Freeling, Wheatfields is only one hour north of the city in a quiet township and offers a quiet small town atmosphere. Wheatfields is close to community services, with shops close by, the Freeling Bowls club down the road and a short walk to numerous parks.
Wheatfields 2020 Aged Care Allocation Round Grant
In July 2021, the Federal Government awarded Wheatfields a substantial capital grant, enabling the facility to develop an exciting building and expansion project, which will progress the existing 53 beds to a state of the art 70 bed facility.
This will include: a multifunction activities hall, a wellness centre/gymnasium, a cinema and coffee area for families to meet along with landscaped garden areas
The building works of three stages will commence in early 2024 and Stage One has an anticipated completion date of December 2024.
In the meantime, there may be some disruption to the nursing home as the building works progress, but every measure will be taken to ensure that this will be kept to a minimum and residents and families will be fully informed along the way.
Further updates will be released when available.
