Freedom Aged Care

  1. The Freedom Care Watch is the world’s greatest new development in aged care. To say that the Freedom Care
    Watch sets whole new standards and new expectations in aged care is an enormous understatement. The Freedom Care Watch isn’t just changing the future of aged care, it’s redefining it in ways we could never have imagined.

    Worn exactly like a normal wrist watch, (and just as small, stylish and sturdy), the Freedom Care Watch is a non‐stop monitor – a 24/7 guardian of vital information relating to every aspect of physical health and well being, including movement and inactivity. No matter where our residents are, at home or out and about in the community, the Freedom Care Watch transmits every detail in real time to our community’s 24/7 Nursing Care team.

    Of course care will always be about the human heart, the human touch and the connection between caring and cared for people. The Freedom Care Watch just helps us care even quicker and better!

  3. Freedom is far more than just a place to live. For our residents it’s like having a second family while they receive all the care and support they need to live as independently as possible. The reasons people come to Freedom are as varied as the lives of those who call Freedom ‘home’.

    • Freedom mirrors nursing home levels of care in the privacy of our resident’s own home. There’s no need to move again
    • Freedom has a vibrant, social atmosphere with activities and social events coordinated by our onsite Diversional Therapists seven days a week
    • Freedom offers the choice of freshly cooked and prepared meals either in the communal dining room or in your Freedom home
    • Freedom’s unique falls detection technology, alerts care staff immediately without the need to press a button
    • Freedom communities also have staff and technology to assist residents with memory loss to live as independently as they are able to
    • Every Freedom resident has a dedicated Registered Nurse Clinical Case Manager who monitors and manages the progression of care and support for each resident
    • Freedom has a unique financial model that allows people on the full aged care pension to be able to afford to live at Freedom for the rest of their lives
    • Freedom offers families peace of mind that their loved ones are happy and being cared for in a beautiful environment
    • And for Doug, well, it’s just about happy hour with friends at Wrinkles bar!

    Whatever it is that brings people here, Freedom recognises we are all on a different ageing and health journey. At Freedom it’s a journey made easier and more enjoyable because we are all on it together.

  4. The Sue Hawkings Commemorative Bursary is a new annual Freedom Aged Care award that will be granted to a Freedom team member who most consistently demonstrates the key qualities of our ‘Freedom Spirit’ in caring for our residents. These qualities - Love, Kindness, Decency and Respect – are what uniquely define us as a company, as a culture and, ultimately, as a community.

    These same qualities are also what drove Sue Hawkings from a very early age and defined her life-long career as a highly-respected Registered Nurse, a loving wife and mother. Considering the purpose of the Sue Hawkings Bursary - to assist in the furthering of skills and experience in relation to dementia and memory loss, palliative care, diversional therapy, wound management and other critical elements of the care-continuum for the elderly – it is ironic (and deeply sad for all of us here at Freedom who admired and adored her) - that Sue was destined in later life to become the first resident with Dementia in our Toowoomba community. But not even the ravages of dementia could detract from the professional and educational achievements of this remarkable Queensland woman. If there was one thing Sue was always passionate about, it was education. Leaving school at 15 in an era that offered few professional prospects to women, Sue embarked on a nursing career at a local hospital.

    Always a great believer in professional development, she felt that by improving her knowledge in as many areas of nursing as possible, she could care for more people more effectively. In between completing two Bachelor Degrees, a Graduate Certificate and many other qualifications, Sue also raised a family, cared for her own mother and maintained a large and loving network of friends. She always said nurses shared a special bond and that they learned, through the hardships and heartaches their careers, how precious and important life was.

    We at Freedom Aged Care can’t think of a more appropriate person to name our bursary after than Sue Hawkings.

    On Friday 12 June 2015, our first Sue Hawkings commemorative bursary was awarded to Ellen Klease from our Bridge St Toowoomba community, for going above and beyond for our residents and being the epitome of the Freedom spirit love, decency, kindness and respect.

    Congratulations Ellen!

  5. Our Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers celebrations have come to an end for another year. This is an annual event for the Queensland, Toowoomba region attracting visitors from all over Australia and around the world with this year being the biggest ever. It’s a celebration of colour, sounds, flavours, laughs and adventures over ten days. The Freedom family have been part of this celebration since 2012 with our very own Freedom float on the Saturday grand parade day. This years theme was the ‘Storybook of Colours’, so we created ‘The very hungry caterpillar in the Freedom vege garden’.

    This float has been many months planning, hard work and of course lots of fun. Here is a showcase of the float, please take the time to make yourself a cuppa, relax and watch the making of, behind the scenes and the big day of the parade.

    On the Grand Parade day there are over 150 groups throughout the parade including marching bands, walking groups and floats. Our Freedom float fell into the Corporate Category of floats and with all of our team work and fruitions has landed us a first place in the Corporate Category. Woo hoo!! The grand champion of the whole parade goes to the amazing Woolworths float. Congrats Woolies!

    Thanks to everyone that has helped a little or a lot to make this day happen for our Freedom family. The freedom team onsite at Toowoomba Deb, Jan, Leanne, Sue, Jude, Helen, Tim, Rodney, Heather, Amelia, all of our residents who helped make the thousands of decorations or were on the float as our vege characters Eric and Helen the tomatos from Taylor St, Sue and Sue the strawberries from Bridge St, Franklin the corn on the cobb from Taylor St and Pam the watermelon from Taylor St. A big thanks to our external partners Energize Design, Polystyrene Solutions, Urban Visual Art & Sculpture, Bishopp Outdoor, Toowoomba Flower Market, Richard Adams Homes, David Evans Group, KB Ornamental Sunflowers, CJ Andrews and last but certainly not least Teen Challenge Qld.

    Thank you for our team that had a huge day on the parade day with and early start at 7am through to 7pm to make it all happen Bronwyn, Greer, Blaise, Kathleen, Helena, Craig, Steve and family, Anthony, Paul and family and our freedom volunteers we wouldn’t have been able to achieve this day without your help. And lastly but not least a massive thanks to Alisha for making it all come together successfully for a great team achievement. Thank you!

    If you haven’t been to the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, book in a weekend of food, wine and fun for next year as it’s a great week of celebrations. It’s a must do and we hope to see you there next year.

The first thing you need to know about Freedom Aged Care is that we are not a traditional nursing home, nor can we be compared with any other aged care community.

Freedom is a totally new vision in aged care – a vision built around the independence and privacy of home ownership and 24/7 nursing care; a vision that recognises each and every one of our residents as the centre of our universe; a vision that acknowledges that affordability is as important as freedom and that feeling valued
is as important as feeling heard.

As Australia’s first and only Total Life-stage Care (TLC) community, Freedom Aged Care offers everything that living at home offers and much more. At Freedom you not only get to keep all your privacy and independence, you also get to meet new friends and celebrate everyday life in a loving, close-knit community dedicated to providing aged care the way you want it and need it. This includes low to high-end, dementia and palliative nursing care.

For your family it means peace of mind knowing you are in the driver’s seat of your own destiny while enjoying all the freedom, fun, friendship and care you could ever want.
