Located in Innaloo, Brightwater Birralee is a suburban home for a group of 30 permanent residents and 30 transition care clients, providing high quality care for people with a range of different needs, including those with advanced dementia.
Birralee has 30 permanent private rooms that span across two individual houses. Each house has an inviting and homely feel, with its own living room, kitchen, dining room and small library. Expansive gardens and gazebo areas surround each of the houses, providing plenty of spaces to relax outdoors. Central to these houses is a large clubhouse and hairdressing salon.
In 2019, we renovated Birralee, to give the home a brighter and more contemporary look and feel, creating a calmer and more enjoyable environment. With extra signage to assist with wayfinding, enhanced lighting and new artwork along corridors, a spruced up garden, fresh paint in palettes inspired by nature and a general declutter, the home feels welcoming and homely for residents and families.
Each private room has been designed with individual comfort in mind, with its own ensuite, an adjustable electric bed with hotel quality linen, generous storage available in the built-in cupboard for clothing and personal belongings and an individually controlled reverse cycle air conditioning system. Many of the rooms have views over the courtyards and gardens.
Life at Birralee
Meals at Birralee are provided by our very own catering team, and the regularly changing menu provides you choice, with a variety of tasty and nutritional meals including some recognisable old favourites.
Every meal on the menu has been tested and approved by our dietitian and speech pathologists, to make sure that we cater for all diet textures, and offer meals that meet the nutritional requirements for all of our residents, including those with dysphagia and chronic disease. From fish and chips, to bangers and mash, to texture modified food that is full of flavour, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
We have our own in-house team of Brightwater allied health professionals, including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, podiatrist and social workers. By having this expertise in-house, we can ensure that you receive the best possible care, as our centralised team talk to each other and can quickly identify the support you need.
The clubhouse at Birralee is home to many of the complimentary activities that take place like quizzes, bingo and card games, and run by our experienced therapy assistants. If you have a green thumb, you will enjoy taking part in our gardening group. Plus, we regularly have visiting entertainers, like the WA Opera, Perth Symphony Orchestra and dance groups.
Whether you want to get involved in our range of social activities or bask in the sunlight of our landscaped gardens, our team will always appreciate your preferences.
