About Our Community

Architecturally redesigned and rebuilt for tasteful contemporary living, the Shalom Centre is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and a caring community. The courtyard café serves fresh, tasty meals and barista-fresh coffee, giving a cosmopolitan flair to the lifestyle here.

Most importantly, the centre’s highly skilled staff members never underestimate the power of individual care – it’s what we’re here for. That’s why life at Shalom Centre has never worked around an itinerary; it works around you. You’re invited to enjoy the convenience of an on-site hairdresser, library, podiatrist, physiotherapist, and regular trips and church services.

Or, if you choose our premium services, you may prefer to relax in the comfort of your own spacious room and catch up on some of the old classic movies with your complimentary Foxtel subscription. Whatever you choose, this modern home is your special place to enjoy.

Quality As Standard

Shalom Centre offers quality care in a shared-accommodation setting that is accessible to everyone. All rooms are fitted with en-suite bathrooms and feature large windows that bring in plenty of natural light and overlook tranquil gardens.

Our doors remain open for your loved ones too, however many you have! Want to celebrate a special occasion? Our on-site café, large chapel and palatial entertaining area will always welcome your friends and family – whatever the occasion.

Lifestyle Premium Options

At the Shalom Centre your style of comfort is yours to choose, which is why we also offer a superior suite of homes nestled in the hub of our Macquarie Park community. The large single rooms boast plenty of premium extras including chef-prepared meals with fine wines, alfresco candlelit dinners, luxury linen, and Foxtel services. We also provide an award-winning service within separate houses for people living with dementia. Please read our Extra Services tab above to find out more about how our Lifestyle Premium Options can benefit you.

Premium Lifestyle Choices

At Shalom Centre all clients receive the same level of high-quality, personalised care and all clients benefit from the wide range of services and activities available at the centre.

Shalom Centre offers extra services for those clients looking for a little more. At Shalom we call this the Premium Lifestyle Choice option.
Premium Lifestyle Choice offers Shalom clients extras such as significantly higher standards of accommodation, food and other personal services that clients and their families might not expect to find at an aged care centre.

Our Premium Lifestyle Choice offers a range of extra service enhancements and provisions, which include:

Spacious individual rooms with ensuites
Designer-selected superior decor & furnishings
Access to a wide variety of main meals, snacks and beverages of choice
Provision of a chef for meal preparation
Specially designated dining areas
A wide variety of lifestyle activities including sensory stimulation for clients with dementia
Quality linen, glassware, crockery, cutlery & furnishings
Foxtel

Shalom Centre also has a chapel area for quiet, personal, reflective and spiritual time with weekly services for residents who wish to participate. The centre also serves clients and their families at the Baptista café located on the ground floor with morning tea, coffee, lunch and other meals available for families to enjoy.

Premium Lifestyle Choice - Fine Food

Our Premium Lifestyle Choice clients enjoy the finest dining experience in aged care with a wide range of main meals, snack meals and beverage options at times of their choosing.

The enjoyment and experience of meals is enhanced by the aroma of the food being prepared and served on-site with added touches such as quality china, glassware, linen and cutlery. Most importantly, though, the meals and quality of service never disappoints.

Shalom Centre has a wide range of options to cater for clients' diverse tastes, including:

Two hot dish options with every breakfast
A choice of at least two main courses at every lunch and dinner
Entrée or soup and/or a choice of desserts with every lunch and dinner meal
A selection of light meals at every morning, afternoon tea and supper
A selection of snacks and non-alcoholic beverages 24 hrs per day in addition to water, tea, coffee, juices, fruit and biscuits
The choice of beer and/or wine at dinner*
The availability of meals for guests on request for a small fee

Clients' preferences for meal services are sought and acted upon and a range of options are available for clients with restricted ability to eat some foods.

In addition, the experience of every day dining at Shalom is improved by the little things we've put in place and planned for, such as:

All meals at Shalom are prepared by our onsite chef
Meals are served over a 1.5 hour period which gives the client more flexible meal time choices
Clients are consulted on their preferred meal and beverage choices, dining options and timing of meals on or before arrival to the facility
The chef will be available to talk to clients individually about their food preferences
To enhance community and enjoy socialising, clients will be encouraged to go to the dining room for meals, but provision will be made for tray service to rooms if requested and other dining areas may be booked for special occasions

Other enhanced dining options are available throughout the course of the year, including:

Happy hour
Wine and cheese evenings
Alfresco Dining - dining outdoors on either the upstairs balcony or in the garden area
Candlelight dinners with family and friends
BBQ's and special occasions meals

In addition to these services the Baptista café is located just to the side of the main foyer for clients and families of BaptistCare to enjoy. The café is adjacent to an activity area, the hairdresser's salon and opens out into a central garden.

Please note that the provision of these beverages are assessed on an individual basis to ensure no negative interaction with medications and/or any existing medical conditions.

Financials Explained

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 (RAD) or 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 5.70%) / 365 = $85.89 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.
