Orana is so much more than Kingaroy's largest aged care service. Perched on a picturesque hill just 2.5 hours north-west of Brisbane, we are a hub that connects the whole community. Residents haveeasy onsite access to regular support groups (RSL, Parkinsons and dementia support groups), a Medicare Local office, telehealth (offering online video appointments with medical professionals allover Australia) and more.
We offer 94 residential aged care places catering for high and low level care, and secure dementia support. We also have 25 retirement village units offering independent living and a low maintenancelifestyle. These co-located accommodation options mean residents can continue to be part of the Orana community and also offer opportunities for couples to stay together, regardless of changing needs. We are proud to be part of the first wave of aged care services in Australia to offer Consumer Directed Home Care packages. These packages support older people to age well at home. As the name suggests, the client has control over what types of services are purchased with their funding.
“At Orana we aim to exceed your expectations of care and lifestyle. All are welcome to be part of our community.”
Orana Lutheran Complex Service Manager Kym Zischke
“It is peaceful, secure and I love the community atmosphere. The employees are excellent and very approachable. We look out over farmland and it is a beautiful outlook. Our apartment is very comfortable and nice.”
Orana Retirement Village resident William Barridge since 1996
Clear mountain air is a wonderful tonic for flowering plants.
The ocean of colour that is the garden in bloom at Orana is testament to that.Neat lawns and hedges frame the view of the Bunya Mountains, while beds of roses, agapanthus and more are an ever changing palette of colour.Also, there is an emphasis on indoor gardens, with a lovely sunroom for taking in the view.
Families are always welcome at Orana and there are several outdoor seating areas designed to share a meal and relax.
