Residents are central to Kaloma’s Mission. We live our Mission every day.
Kaloma boasts a beautiful modern rural aged care home for 80 residents which includes respite (temporary care), all levels of care including dementia specific (secure) and palliative care. We work hard to keep our residents at home and out of hospital when possible and our experienced, qualified aged care registered and enrolled nurses makes this a reality.
Built in 1997 and four developments later, our aged care home offers all single occupancy rooms with ensuites with four sizes of rooms on offer – 24, 26, 28 and four 42 square metre rooms (the latter have a separate lounge area). All rooms have access to outside spaces. Kaloma is located next to the golf course and has a pleasant rural feel with lots of open spaces and bountiful gardens.
Our goal is to provide the highest quality of service to residents within our means and is based on a resident focused approach where independence, re-ablement and well-being are promoted.
Resident care programs and activities are designed to include each person’s individual preferences and interests as far as is practicable.
