Care with heart
Living with Wesley Mission Queensland means living with friends in a loving community where the care is all about you. Wesley Mission Queensland was the first provider of aged care in Brisbane with the Sisters of Nursing in 1907 and established Queensland’s first aged care community in 1936. We are privileged to share in the lives of our elders and celebrate their wisdom and wealth of knowledge. When you enter one of our residences we take the time to get to know you personally. This ensures all staff can respond to your individual needs effectively and accurately, including medical, cultural, religious and dietary.
We provide quality meals to ensure your dining experience is an enjoyable and social one. Chefs regularly meet with our dieticians, nutritionists and speech pathologists to plan a range of delicious healthy meals, which are served buffet-style in our dining rooms.
Our approach to dining is flexible. Whether you want to dine with friends in the dining room, entertain family or guests in private dining spaces, or enjoy a quiet meal in your room, it's all about providing choice.
