PresCare has been part of the Rockhampton community for over 50 years with our commitment to residential aged care culminating in Alexandra Gardens in North Rockhampton.
The care & services at PresCare Alexandra Gardens are based on residents’ needs, preferences and choices. Alexandra Gardens provides residential care for 94 residents. Rooms are located in three small wings in Jasmine Court and in four other Courts. With walkways for ease of access, Alexandra Gardens features central courtyards and wings are surrounded by landscaped gardens. Outdoor BBQ areas provide entertainment space for residents and their families.
Rooms include a bed, bedside table with drawers, built in cupboard and visitor’s chair. Residents and families are encouraged to bring personal items to make their room as home-like as possible. Residents are able to have a small refrigerator and a TV in their room.
Meals are cooked fresh on site and served in dining rooms, resident’s rooms or meals can be enjoyed with family members in private nooks. There is some flexibility in meal times, particularly breakfast. Personal items can be laundered in the main laundry or by residents in smaller on-site laundries. There are no restrictions on visiting hours.
This home is a skilled service; nurses are trained to provide palliative care and sub-acute care as well general nursing care. Registered nurses work in collaboration with general practitioners, geriatricians and other medical specialists, nurse practitioners and allied health staff so that residents who prefer to stay in the home when unwell can do so rather than be admitted to hospital.
This facility also works in collaboration with the Central Queensland University for research and training and provides clinical placement for nursing, dental and allied health students.
