Types of Care
For residents who require permanent placement, BlueWave Living offers dedicated care and accommodation provided by registered nurses and qualified care staff. Registered Nurses are on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We offer a variety of rooms including single rooms with ensuites and double rooms with ensuites. Our facility is fully air conditioned and built on one level for easy access.
BlueWave Living offers high and low level respite care. Respite residents have nursing care around the clock along with the opportunity to participate in lots of activities, and enjoy freshly cooked meals. Respite residents live alongside current residents, which helps to foster connections and ensure that they feel part of our community.
Respite offers carers a much needed break from their caring role. It is often also used if a carer is going away or into hospital for a short period of time.
While respite care is a short-term option, the government allows up to 63 days of respite care per financial year, however extensions may be granted.
