NOW OPEN – Embracia in Burpengary – new residents welcome. 

Embracia in Burpengary is a purpose built, 120 bed aged care home.

We offer contemporary aged care where you come first.

Our philosophy has the resident at its heart; around it we innovate and create best-practice models of care in response to the changes in aged care.

Embracia in Burpengary opened in August 2017.  We are offering quality care, in our beautifully designed and decorated home. Our philosophy, care and lifestyle are all focused on what residents can do.

Ageing in Place

We believe in mixed care and ageing in place, enabling residents’ social connections and relationships to continue to grow.

This is your home.  You don’t have to move, even if your care needs change.   This is genuine ageing in place.  We adjust our care and services to meet your unique needs. 

Your community is our community

Embracia likes to connect with the local community, through events and contribution to local programs. 

It is important to us that the home reflects the culture and needs of the wider community.

Memory Support Households

Embracia is a leading dementia care provider.  We have a unique approach that connects families and older people.   We use the Montessori method of dementia care, an innovative method that focuses on what people can do, rather than what they can’t. 

We have two dedicated memory support households, each staffed by dedicated, specially trained teams who have a passion for dementia care.

Through the Montessori approach, each resident is supported to find purpose and fulfilment, as well as the care they need.

Respite care

We offer respite care for both planned breaks, and unforeseen situations where respite is more urgently needed.

Palliative care

Our quality palliative care is overseen by our Nursing team and is centred on respecting the resident, their wishes, and ensuring their individual needs and dignity remain the focus throughout.  Our staff provide compassionate and caring support to loved ones at a challenging time.
