Alzheimer’s Queensland has proudly operated Rosalie Nursing Care Centre since 1999. This 40-bed home offers secure and intimate living, celebrating its uniqueness as a female only home. Local residents have come to appreciate Rosalie as the specialist dementia nursing home in the Inner Brisbane City.
Rosalie’s outstanding features are the homely environment and our award winning home cooked meals. Rooms have a picturesque view of either the gardens or the hillside overlooking Paddington. The front north facing veranda is positioned adjacent to a large lounge and enables residents a balance between social engagement in activities and personal space. The outdoors provides comfortable seating and raised garden beds. Residents are able to enjoy evening happy hours and barbeques in the sun protected courtyard, with one conveniently positioned off the dining area to enhance the choice of indoor and outdoor dining.
As expert dementia care specialists we understand the importance of a familiar environment for residents to enhance feelings of safety and well-being. Staff at Rosalie are specially trained in delivering holistic dementia care. As part of this care our ladies are enabled to continue to lead an active and socially engaging lifestyle participating in the various activities offered by the home. Examples include: cooking, art, happy hours, flexibility and fitness sessions, shopping and coffee outings, pet therapy, and music programs. The wellness and enablement approach is reinforced with access to a range of professionals including 24hour registered nurses, dentists, physiotherapist, speech pathologist, occupational therapist, music therapist and podiatrist.
The home is conveniently located at Howard Street, Paddington and is within easy walking distance to the Rosalie shops.
