Our Mission is “To provide quality residential and community aged care services” to the older people of Warwick & District
The Warwick Benevolent Society was founded in 1876 and is a non-denominational body and a registered charitable organization, owned and operated by the Warwick community.
The Society provides residential aged care services, and community home care services, trading as Akooramak Care of Older Persons.
We provide care and accommodation for 98 permanent residents, together with residential respite care, in newly built or significantly refurbished single ensuited rooms, with most rooms fully air-conditioned. We have a secure memory support facility for those living with dementia. We also have the capacity to provide funded Home Care services at levels, one through to four, including the provision of fresh cooked meals daily from our accredited kitchen.
Being community owned and operated we support the local community, and the community supports us. We buy local wherever possible, both goods and services. We use local tradespersons and contractors. We are supported by the community with many valuable volunteer hours and skills provided for our residents’ enjoyment.
Our services are fully accredited by the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency.
