Freedom Aged Care Toowoomba - Taylor St

 

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

Freedom Aged Care Taylor Street is a vibrant, loving community offering you a lifestyle of the highest quality, underpinned by care and companionship as you progress through your ageing journey.  

Enjoy the privacy and independence of your very own Freedom Aged Care home. Each spacious and welcoming unit comes equipped with your own kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom, laundry and courtyard. You even have your own front door!

Freedom is your own private world - a secure, self-contained community where all your physical and emotional needs are lovingly met, each and every day.

At Freedom we encourage our residents to remain active and independent for as long as they are able, and for family and friends to visit often. For our residents who wish to explore the wider community of Toowomba, the nearby Queensland State Rose Garden offers a perfect introduction to this delightful garden city, perfect for a soothing Sunday stroll. This is also a fantastic opportunity to prepare yourself for the award-wining annual Toowomba Carnival of Flowers, which offers a variety of events from the Ergon Food & Wine Festival to the Grand Central Floral Parade (keep an eye out for Freedom’s spectacular float!).

This isn’t just a place to live, it’s a place to belong, to thrive, to share and to celebrate.

Welcome to our ‘Freedom family’ in the heart of Toowoomba.

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.

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 provide personalised care based on each individual’s needs and requirements.

Our vision and values centre on encouraging and supporting our residents through a personal understanding of their needs, challenges and preferences. We develop 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.

Our unique approach to care and assisted living enables our residents to make the most of every opportunity to spend their time doing what they love.

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 Taylor Street 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. 

What type of daily activities occur at your community?

There is always something going on at our Freedom communities, arranged by the onsite team and tailored to each community, a calendar of events will be displayed in your community newsletter or noticeboard.  Whether it be a bus trip, indoor bowls, themed lunch, or Happy Hour, there is something for everyone in our vibrant communities.  Find out more 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?

Freedom residents purchase their home under a 99-year lease, there is an initial purchase price of your new Freedom home and weekly fees for the 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.
