Quality services & accommodation.

Welcome to Wheatfields

Wheatfields Inc. is a specialised aged care service provider, delivering ongoing and respite support and individual 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, an hour north of the city in a quiet township, Wheatfields offers a quiet small town atmosphere. Wheatfields is close to community services, with shops close by, the Freeling Bowls club across the road and a short walk to numerous parks.

The facility is a 53 bed complex with 49 single rooms and 2 twin rooms providing residential care accomodation for aged people who have been assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Team as needing high or low level residential or respite care. Some of these beds are also at times used for respite care which is privately funded. Suitably trained staff are on duty 24 hours a day to provide quality care and support at all times.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help you further.
