Our Facility Overview

History

The facility has been operating since May 1991 and was built with funds raised by the Sarina and surrounding community before obtaining some assistance from the Commonwealth Government.

Sarina Aged Care provides residential aged care to people who have been assessed as requiring residential aged care. The facility consists of 47 permanent beds and 1 respite care bed. There are also 13 Independent Living Units.

Rooms

Residents are encouraged to bring personal items into their rooms. Paintings, plants, armchairs, small items of furniture and any other objects are welcome. This includes television, video recorder, radio/cassette player and the like.

Residents who wish to arrange a direct access telephone service in their room, at their own expense, should seek the assistance of the Facility Manager.

Family photos and mementos as well as photo albums are actively encouraged as this will assist to create a place that is more like home.
