Freedom Aged Care Tamworth

Your own home in the heart of it all, right here in Tamworth

Freedom Aged Care Tamworth is not just any aged care community, it is one of Freedom's Home Care Communities - a genuine alternative to a nursing home.

Located in the Country Music Capital, our home care community in Tamworth is the place to be!

If any of our residents wish to get a taste of Tamworth’s wider community, we recommend visiting the Tamworth City Bowls Club. Located a short five minutes from our doors, it provides a great opportunity for those looking to get out and make some new friends. West Diggers Club is a perfect choice for a nice meal and a refreshing drink, conveniently located next to the picturesque Peel River.

Our residents are special – there’s no doubt about that. As unique and individual as Freedom itself. We see every day the diversity of character and personality in our residents. Whenever a resident refers to Freedom as ‘home’, we are reminded that what we do here makes a difference. Friendships are created, memories are shared and lots of stories are told. This is what makes Freedom a real family community, and one that we are proud to be a part of.

We look forward to welcoming you to our family at Freedom Aged Care Tamworth.

Feel free to come in for a cuppa and a chat to let us show you the truly unique Aged Care Community that is Freedom

 

The Freedom Difference

Care & Support

Our Home Care Community

Freedom Aged Care offers 24-hour personalised care and support for our residents. Our 24/7 aged care team, will tailor their care to the needs of our residents. The care we provide at Freedom rivals the care you would receive from home care or from any other aged care provider, including residential care and nursing homes.

Freedom Aged Care's ethos is based on encouraging and supporting our residents through a personal understanding of their needs, difficulties and challenges and developing procedures for clinical care based on evidence and best practices. 

The care and support we provide at Freedom changes and evolves with you through every stage of the ageing journey, meaning you should never have to move again.

The difference in care that we offer starts before you even move in, with No Means Testing or ACAT required prior to moving into your Freedom Home, the whole process is made as easy as possible for our residents. 

Freedom Aged Care now offers Respite Care, also known as ‘short-term care’, where you or your loved one can enjoy all the amazing benefits of living at Freedom, while providing a break for your primary carer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Want to know more, or have a different question? Send us a message and we will be happy to help!

Can I bring my pet?

Pets are welcome at Freedom Aged Care Tamworth and actively encouraged.  Your pet will be assessed when you join Freedom, to ensure they will fit in to the community and thrive as part of the Freedom family.  Read more about our pet-friendly communities here.

Can I have my family and friends visit anytime I want?

Yes! We love having visitors and do not have set visiting hours.  It is your Freedom home, so you can have visitors as you please and they can even stay overnight with you if you wish. 

Can I eat dinner in my own home or do I have to go to the dining area?

Meals prepared in our onsite kitchen are optional and most of our Freedom homes have self-contained kitchens so you have the freedom to make your own meals.  For those who have opted in to have meals prepared, we encourage social interaction in our community dining area, but if you don't feel up to it, we can deliver your meal to your door. More about our fresh and nutritious meals here.

Will I be separated from my spouse or partner?

At Freedom, couples stay together. We are totally committed to ensuring couples stay together, regardless of their changing health needs.  Find out more about living at Freedom as a couple here.

What is the difference between Freedom Aged Care and a nursing home?

At Freedom you will have your own private self-contained home, whereas nursing homes are typically in communal buildings, where you have limited privacy and independence.  As a genuine alternative to a nursing home, you will have access to 24-hour aged care that evolves with you through all stages of your journey.  From everyday support for those with minimal care needs (such as assistance with cleaning, nutrition, or social activities), high clinical care, dementia and memory impairment therapy, and palliative care when the time comes.  Balanced with activities, social interaction and entertainment, providing total quality of life for those living there, rather than focusing on only immediate care like most nursing homes.  At Freedom you can continue to live with your spouse and pets and keep your family together, whereas this is not always possible in a nursing home.  More about our home care communities here.

What are the costs?

There is an initial purchase price when you buy your new Freedom home and weekly fees for community services and 24/7 personal care. Weekly services charges and care fees are set at a level that covers Freedom’s costs and no more, and those on the Age Pension can defer a portion of these costs. Residents can also access government-funded care packages that help cover the cost of care, and can be used toward purchasing equipment and consumables. 

 

At the end of your time with Freedom, Freedom keeps a percentage of the resale price of your Freedom home, which is known as a deferred management fee (DMF). The DMF covers the costs involved in providing all the wonderful amenities you enjoy as a resident in your village community. This DMF is set as a percentage of the property’s value when it is sold on to its next resident, with a higher percentage returned to you, or your estate. We encourage all parties relevant to the decision making process to meet with our sales consultants, who will provide a detailed overview of Freedom’s fee structure and answer any questions you may have. We are completely transparent about any costs and if you would like any more information please feel free to call us on 1800 647 813 or enquire here.
