About Our Community
Nestled in the peaceful and scenic bushland of Wagga Wagga, Caloola Centre is surrounded by natural light, airy courtyards and landscaped gardens bursting with Australian flora. The 75 room centre provides quality, specialist support to a well-loved community of individuals with higher care needs. Space comfort and safety is our priority, with all rooms featuring emergency monitoring systems.
Caloola Centre boasts an impressive level of skilled staff and resources in providing quality, palliative care as well as providing secure wings dedicated to those living with dementia. This includes our newly built sensory garden, providing a safe and stimulating outdoor space for clients.
We know that you’re different to your neighbour – that’s what makes living within our communities so special and dynamic. There’s never any obligation to join our varied programs of activities or social outings – although there’s always plenty to try if you’re interested.
Whatever you choose, Caloola Centre is your special place to enjoy.
Our on-site hairdressing salon comes fully equipped to ensure you can get the haircut and pampering you deserve! We have a hairdresser regularly on-site.
We provide care for clients with dementia in a friendly, safe, environment with attractively designed communal lounge and dining areas. Our qualified staff are present 24/7 to provide support.
Ageing In Place
As your care needs increase we can tailor a care program that allows you to age in place, without the inconvenience of being transferred to a different facility.
We want to ensure your time with us is spent enjoying the sorts of activities you like to do. From crafts, live entertainment, music and diversional therapy, social events, exercise and much more - our lifestyle coordinators can tailor a program that works for you.
Our library is well stocked with print and recorded books for you to read or listen to at your leisure.
Specialist Health Services
We have access to a range of health services to suit your care. This could include physiotherapy, massage therapy, psychology, social work, podiatry, GP visits, Allied Health and dentistry - essentially whatever you need. We have the resources to help.
We have rooms available for you to have special consultations - whether that is with your GP or another health professional.
Church Services and Spiritual Support
Our chaplain regularly holds church services that cater to a broad range of people. We understand your spiritual journey is personal, so we aim to support your spiritual needs - whatever stage you are at on your walk.
In-room Emergency System
Your care is our priority, so all our rooms are equipped with emergency monitoring systems as standard practice.
Freshly Prepared Meals
At BaptistCare we love making tasty meals - almost as much as eating them! Our qualified cooks use fresh ingredients and prepare each meal. It's your home, and making sure you eat well is very important to us!
Premium Lifestyle Choices
Our Premium Lifestyle Choice extra service options provides clients with large single rooms and options that you might ordinarily find in a hotel. You will be pampered with extra services such as Foxtel, chef prepared meals with fine wines, beautiful dining areas, and superior décor with separate houses for the frail aged and for people living with dementia. For more information we recommend you open the Extra Services tab above.
All non-supported residents who have assets above the current partially supported cut off level will be required to pay either a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) or a lump sum Refundable Accommodation Deposit or a combination of lump sum refundable accommodation deposit (RAD) and the balance of the RAD as an equivalent Daily Payment (DAP). The pricing listed below is the maximum pricing for the category of the room and may vary depending on your individual circumstances.
To calculate the equivalent daily payment, the refundable accommodation deposit is multiplied by the current maximum permissible interest rate (MPIR)* and divided by 365 days.
For example, a refundable deposit of $550,000 would have an equivalent daily payment of:
i.e. ($550,000 x 5.96%) / 365 = $89.80 per day
Optional Services Provided At An Additional Cost
Optional Services of your choice are available via our You Choose Optional extras Program. Please enquire for more information.
