Bargara Concierge... at your service

Our grand dining room at Bargara now offers a concierge service to ensure the dining experience is the best it can be for every resident, at every meal. We understand the concerns about stimulating an appropriate appetite to ensure proper nutrition and hydration, and that eating can be stressful time for many of our residents, so it is our promise to make this experience as happy as it can be.

Our concierge service will help residents choose which meal they want, allowing them to discuss food and drink choices. Our concierge will look after everything, from the menu to the table settings. By tantalizing our residents senses with constantly changing menu options, we encourage them to eat more, enjoy their meals, and gain as much nutrition and hydration as possible through eating and drinking.

This is our residents’ home, so we want everything to be as perfect. By improving the dining experience, we hope to add just that little bit extra joy.

Memory Support

Wisteria is a private and safe area at Bargara specially designed for dementia sufferers who may have wandering tendencies. Movement is encouraged, giving residents freedom throughout their private suites, communal lounges, dining areas and dedicated gardens. Dementia can take many different forms, and our specialist team of dementia trained experts understand how to support and focus on what people can do, rather than what they can’t, through empowerment, socialisation and interaction.

  • We are very grateful for everything that we received, and we feel that the people of Bundaberg need to know that there is excellent elderly care available.

  • I would like to bring to the attention of our district the amazing facility that is now operating at Bargara.

    Palm Lake Care is situated at Palm Lake Resort, but is a stand-alone facility where people can reside with on-site qualified medical assistance when they are no longer able to live alone in their own homes.

    My family has been the fortunate recipient of the care that the staff at Palm Lake Care take of a resident’s entire family – frequent communication, visiting whenever it suits, even the family pet is welcome and it’s generally a warm, friendly place to be.

    We are very grateful for everything that we received, and we feel that the people of Bundaberg need to know that there is excellent elderly care available.

    The building is well-designed and the decor is simply beautiful.

    I would urge families to visit Palm Lake Care if they have the opportunity – a beautiful and comfortable asset in our community.

  • I enjoy still being able to have my glass of wine with dinner, something that I’ve done my entire adult life, I love that they make it possible.

  • Before coming into a care place like this, I thought the staff would be like the nurses you see in hospitals. But because of the time they spend with me, they’ve become like my extra family. I look forward and enjoy seeing the staff I know, and get to know the new ones too. We find so much to talk about.
