Located on the eastern side of the town of Boonah, Churches of Christ in Queensland Aged Care Service Fassifern Boonah is situated at the foot of the southern border ranges in spacious Henry Moller Park.
Residential care services are provided in four 16 bed cottages. High level care services are also provided to 105 residents in the nursing home facility. There are plenty of places to sit out in the courtyard gardens and read a good book, or just enjoy the view across the distant hills as the sun goes down.
Cottage model of care
Each cottage offers 16 private ensuited rooms. Each designed to promote a home-like environment where residents are encouraged to maintain their independence. The houses provide residents with the privacy of individual rooms which are all ensuited. Residents are encouraged to individualise their rooms with their personal belongings. Houses are climate controlled for residents’ comfort.
Each cottage has a home-style kitchen where all meals are served in the spacious dining rooms. The lounge room, private dining room and solariums provide ample provision for residents to maintain their contact with family and friends in private surroundings.
