Welcome to Wheatfields

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 New Build and Renovations

There is great excitement the contract for the new building and renovations has been completed and the building project began as of the 29th of April 2024.

Stage one is the new 33 bed opening in January 2025 and stage two and three will complete the build and we can open the doors to a state-of-the-art residential care in Freeling in March 2026

This building project will upgrade the existing 53 beds to a state of the art 73 bed facility which will include a multifunction activities hall, a wellness centre/gymnasium, cinema, café, and landscaped garden/BBQ areas.

The design concept has taken into consideration the needs of all residents including those with dementia and the aim is to provide a cottage type environment with 5 cottages, which have their own kitchenettes, dining, and lounge areas with a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 15 residents in one area and 4 landscaped courtyards. 

Additionally, all new rooms and the upgraded rooms will have an ensuites and feature glass sliding doors which open into a garden area and there will also be a double room to provide for couples and a palliative care suite for the community.

The architects and builders have designed the plans with the needs of the residents foremost in mind and with the aim of empowering residents to lead fulfilling lives on their terms.

From the refurbished private rooms to the additional communal dining and lounge areas the décor and furnishings have been chosen to create a warm, calm, and inviting atmosphere where residents can meet with loved ones and forge new friendships.

“Person Centred Care” is part of our mission and vision for our residents and is embedded in our workplace after all we are working their home. What this also means is “all residents will be able to direct their own care”, be more independent and feel more in control of their lives.

Further updates will be released when available.
