Our commitment to residential aged care led to the establishment of Alexandra Gardens in North Rockhampton over 50 years ago, and PresCare has remained an integral part of the Rockhampton community ever since.
The care and services we provide at Alexandra Gardens are based on the needs, preferences and choices of those that we care for. There is residential care for 94 residents in a homely and comfortable environment. Located in three small wings and four courts, single or double rooms are available, all air-conditioned and with en-suites. Walkways are provided throughout for ease of access to central courtyards, and the entire complex is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens. Outdoor BBQ areas provide entertainment space for our residents and their families to enjoy.
Because we want our care recipients to always feel very much at home, families are encouraged to enhance their rooms with personal items – things like photos, paintings, a favourite throw rug, music, a pot plant or flowers.
All meals are cooked on site and served in dining rooms, or if the care recipient prefers, in their own room. Family members are always welcome to share a meal with their loved one, and private nooks are available for these occasions. There is some flexibility in meal times, particularly breakfast. Personal items can be laundered in the main laundry or smaller on-site laundries are also provided if the care recipient likes to do their own laundry.
Care and services at Alexandra Gardens are provided by qualified, trained and skilled staff. Our registered nurses are trained to provide palliative, dementia and general nursing care, working closely with general practitioners, geriatricians, medical specialists, nurse practitioners and allied health staff. Our care recipients also benefit from an innovative and unique program created by Alexandra Gardens, which allows those who become acutely unwell to stay in the home rather than be admitted to hospital. This sub-acute care initiative is award-winning and recognised nationally.
Supporting our commitment to ongoing learning and innovation, registered nurses from Alexandra Gardens work collaboratively with the Central Queensland University for research and training purposes. Clinical placement for nursing, dental and allied health students is also provided by Alexandra Gardens.
