Seaforth Gardens Aged Care Centre is a close-knit community of 61 residents and just as many staff. The Centre is located in a quiet, leafy suburb with spacious outdoor areas and the Canning River as the backdrop. We offer a peaceful permanent retreat to older Australians who can no longer live independently in their own homes.
The Centre is only a 5 minute drive to the local town centre, hospital and amenities. There is ample parking and the bus stop is right outside the Centre.
Operating for the last forty years and being part of an organisation committed to the wellbeing of the most vulnerable, we are a well-established and respected aged care partner in the local community.
The Centre offers permanent residential care including memory support and palliative care. The care team consists of fully qualified careworkers and nurses, a lifestyle team, a care manager and centre manager. We also have an onsite chaplain offering pastoral care, companionship and support.
The team is backed by a visiting doctor, physiotherapists, a dietician and other specialist medical and lifestyle services experts.
Our staff are with us because they share The Salvation Army's mission of caring for people and have a genuine interest in looking after the elderly. You will find many of them have been with us for decades!
Care plans are developed in partnership with the resident and their family and reviewed as the resident's needs change.
Room sizes range between 17-22 sqm with plenty of natural light and all come furnished with built-in wardrobes and age-friendly bathrooms. There are television sets in our common rooms, but residents are welcome to bring their own television or radio if they wish. We encourage residents to bring personal items such as photographs and soft furnishings to help them feel more at home.
Our chef prepares a wide variety of nutritious, home-cooked meals in our kitchen on-site. There is a choice of hot and cold meals, we cater for allergies, intolerances and culturally-specific needs. The menus are seasonally rotated and there is 24-hour menu for those who missed a meal or feels peckish inbetween meals.
The Lifestyle team, in consulation with resident representatives, runs a busy activities calendar. There is also a separate calendar for our memory support residents. For those who are unable to participate in group activities, there are one-on-one programs to keep them engaged and active.
Residents can be as involved as they wish. For those requiring some quiet time, there is ample space in the gardens, library and quiet nooks by the window to settle in with a cup of tea and watch the day go by.
Apart from the onsite Clinical team, we have general visits from GP twice a week, physio and occupational therapy sessions most days of the week and other Allied Health services as required.
Our Chaplain is available to provide comfort and spiritual support to residents and families from a diverse range of cultural and religious backgrounds - all part of our holistic approach to care.

From the moment you walk through the door, you can feel the warm inviting atmosphere. The staff are exceptional, all very competent, caring and kind. We are blessed to call Seaforth Gardens home to our Mum.
Donald, son of resident.
Ethel Smailes, my mother, moved into Seaforth Gardens in 2009. Now at 95, after 12 years, Mum is continuing to receive the best care and love from a wonderful group of carers. Seaforth is always alive with music, activities and outings. Visitors are very welcome. So I have felt indebted to donate my voluntary time to bus driving, initiating men's activities and helping with the annual Ball and Agricultural show exhibition.
I have witnessed nothing but the best of care, inclusion and instant feedback on my Mum's care.
