Is to provide the highest standard of culturally relevant care based on respect, compassion and choice while assisting those in our care to maintain their emotional and spiritual identity and physical potential. We strive to provide a safe and tranquil environment in which individuality is upheld and extended families are involved.
Kaloma is proudly owned and run by the community. The generosity of people & organisations over the years has enabled a level of care, compassion and respect for our loved ones that commercial facilities simply cannot match.
“I could finally sleep peacefully at night knowing that my wife was happy and content at Kaloma and receiving the very best of care. Kaloma staff are very special people – doing a difficult job. Thanks for allowing me to continue to be her husband and not her nurse.”
“In the two years I’ve been visiting Dottie in Brigalow I have never found her in her room! I find this extraordinary and an incredible testimony to the capacity of the management and staff to consistently provide such a friendly and supportive environment.”
“Our family have been very comforted by the wonderful care that mum has received since becoming a resident of Kaloma. We feel so fortunate that she did not have to leave her hometown to be able to live in such a safe and caring environment. She often tells me that she has everything she needs in her room and how pleased she is not to be in that great big, lonely house anymore. The staff have allowed mum to continue to help with little jobs in the home and to arrange flowers which has always been a passion of hers. Wonderful activities are arranged throughout the week such as exercise classes, craft, painting, sing songs, and outings to the movies and restaurants. Nothing seems too much trouble for the staff.”
“There is a continuous programme of games, puzzles, painting and colouring, walking in the garden, fitness classes and occasionally bus trips to functions in the community and local venues. There are a number of musicians and show people who give a lot of time to provide entertainment to the Kaloma residents on a regular basis. I am endlessly amazed at the variety of activities managed for the residents.”
