Home away from home

Home away from home.

James Frew, a Suncare customer since 2019, thoroughly enjoys his visits to Boronia Cottage.

The retired jeweller lives with his granddaughter in Brisbane but fondly calls Boronia Cottage his “home away from home”.

He says his time there feels like a holiday with the qualified staff always up for an easy conversation, an outing and a good meal.

Often with age, comes routine. And although the comfort of that cannot be denied, it is vitally important that we continue to find pleasures in new experiences, make new friends, create new memories and find new things to look forward to.

“Sometimes everyone needs a break from routine and at Boronia Cottage, we love to help make that special. Maybe you are looking for a little holiday away – at Boronia Cottage we ensure that our guests are well looked after, comfortable, entertained and safe.’ says Nikki, activities coordinator at the Cottage.

Bribie Island is a naturally beautiful location surrounded by pristine coastline. Custom built for respite care, Boronia Cottage offers spacious living areas, light and airy bedrooms with all-ability ensuite bathrooms, and a modern kitchen where nutritious meals are prepared daily.

But more than that is the fact that customers can plan their own day….breakfast in bed, coffee overlooking the sea or a freshly-baked cake for morning tea in the gardens of the Cottage. For the adventurous, social outings can include fishing, drives in the country, or a visit to Mt Mee. At Boronia Cottage, all you need to do is soak up the holiday feeling and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Bribie Island.

There are also times when a carer or family member needs some time. At Suncare, we can step in and look after your loved one so that you can have the time you need to do what you need to do. Whether it is some short-term respite, a helping hand in the house or assistance in visiting the doctor or catching up for a cuppa, Suncare has a service that can help.
