Brightwater The Cove is located in the beautiful setting of Mariner’s Cove in Dudley Park, within the greater Mandurah area.
The Cove provides high quality care for people with a range of different needs, including those with advanced dementia and high care needs.
The Cove has 131 private rooms that span across seven individual houses. Each house has an inviting and homely feel, with its own living room, kitchen and dining room. Expansive courtyard gardens and gazebo areas surround each of the houses, providing plenty of spaces to relax outdoors. Additional amenities include a large Clubhouse, hairdressing salon, small library and physio gym.
In 2020, we renovated The Cove, to give the home a brighter and more contemporary look and feel, creating a calmer and more enjoyable environment. With extra signage to assist with wayfinding, enhanced lighting and new artwork along corridors, a spruced up garden, fresh paint in palettes inspired by nature and a general declutter, the home feels welcoming and homely for residents and families.
Each private room has been designed with individual comfort in mind, with its own ensuite, an adjustable electric bed with hotel quality linen, generous storage available in the built-in cupboard for clothing and personal belongings and an individually controlled reverse cycle air conditioning system. Many of the rooms have views over the courtyards and gardens, while others provide a street view.
Life at The Cove
Meals at The Cove are provided by our very own catering team, and the regularly changing menu provides you choice, with a variety of tasty and nutritional meals including some recognisable old favourites.
Every meal on the menu has been tested and approved by our dietitian and speech pathologists, to make sure that we cater for all diet textures, and offer meals that meet the nutritional requirements for all of our residents, including those with dysphagia and chronic disease. From fish and chips, to bangers and mash, to texture modified food that is full of flavour, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
We have our own in-house team of Brightwater allied health care professionals, including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, podiatrist and social workers. By having this expertise in-house, we can ensure that you receive the best possible care, as our centralised team talk to each other and can quickly identify the support you need.
The large Clubhouse at The Cove is home to many of the complimentary activities that take place like bingo, arts and crafts and lawn bowls, run by our experienced therapy assistants. Plus, we regularly have visiting entertainers, like the WA Opera, Perth Symphony Orchestra, and various local entertainment groups.
Whether you want to get involved in our range of social activities or bask in the sunlight of our courtyard landscaped gardens, our team will always appreciate your preferences.
