Residential Aged Care at its best.
Embracia has nearly 30 years’ experience in Aged Care. The owners, Dawn and Peter MacKenzie, are extensively involved in ensuring that their homes measure up to their exacting standards – not just in the beautiful fixtures and fittings, but in the homes layout, and most importantly, in the care provided.
Embracia in Burpengary is no exception. They have drawn on their years of experience when designing and building their latest home.
Embracia in Burpengary has been purpose built for residential aged care.
The home is set on several acres of land, just 50 minutes north of Brisbane. Embracia in Burpengary is designed over one level, ensuring easy accessibility to our spacious living areas, centralised services, and beautifully landscaped gardens.
The home has 120 beds, which have been divided into 6 individual communities, each with their own central living area. Each community has access to the main streetscape, where you’ll find the café, movie theatre, chapel, games room and hairdressing salon.
Each community is beautifully decorated with carefully selected interiors, and comfortable furniture, to make you feel at home.
The building is only part of the picture. Our philosophy guides every aspect of the care we provide.
