Peace of mind in a caring and supportive community
Whilst Ocean Gardens is a Retirement village at its heart, we also provide high quality support to our residents so they can keep living at the village for as long as possible.
We offer a comprehensive range of care support services. Whilst the prospect of extra support is appealing, we understand that the process of engaging care services can be overwhelming. Our experienced team is here to help navigate you through your aged care journey.
The Federal Government – Department of Health and Aged Care has approved Ocean Gardens to be a home care provider. This means we can provide you with services under a government- funded Home Care Package to support you in your own home at the village. We also provide a variety of self-funded home care services tailored to your specific needs on a ‘fee for service’ basis.
We believe our 24-hour care service and emergency call system is unique to Perth because we have a care staff member onsite 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The system is monitored onsite by our own Care Team. Simply activate the pendant when you require assistance and a Care Support Worker will
be by your side in minutes.
For more information on our Care Support Services give us a call on 9285 3050.
Services, your way
There might come a day when you find that some activities have become harder than they used to. But why should anything else have to change? At Ocean Gardens, you can simply select the support you need and then keep on living life the way you choose.
Our self-funded home care support services provide you with the flexibility to choose from a variety of services. Have a face-to-face chat with our Care Team who will make it simple and easy to create your tailored support plan. Start your home care package straight away, or simply keep the information tucked away for if or when you need it.
You don’t have to worry if you no longer feel up to doing all of your own cleaning or laundry; we’re here to help. Our Housekeeping Team can help with a range of tasks from cleaning out the fridge, the pantry or the linen cupboard, through to regular jobs like the bathroom, toilet, floors and dusting. Our commercial laundry can take care of those large and other bulky personal items like blankets, doonas, bed sheets and towels.
We can help you look and feel your best with personal care services delivered with respect and dignity. We can help you with showering, dressing, grooming and personal hygiene needs.
We will turn up at an agreed time, so you won’t be waiting around for your support to arrive.
We can help you manage your health conditions to keep
you on track:

We have a 12-seat bus and an 8-seat van which are used for outings, social purposes and transport of a similar nature. Our Care Team can also help you if you need transport to and from medical appointments, family visits, shopping and more.
We also have a shared motor vehicle available for residents, which is free of charge. Our volunteer drivers are available to take you to places such as the doctor’s surgery, hospital, shops, airport and more. This service means residents don’t have to worry about paying motor vehicle expenses or asking loved ones to take them places (our supportive community of volunteer drivers are happy to help).
Ocean Gardens has three apartment style rooms available for short term accommodation to both the public and families of our village residents.
For the convenience of visitors, we welcome friends and family to stay in these self-contained apartments at a very competitive cost
Why not come and stay in the village and enjoy the lifestyle while making your decision about moving in permanently?
Our restaurant is open for deliveries on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. They also open for a seated lunch every Sunday (families are welcome!) and many other special occasions so you can enjoy the view, meet new people and relax while we do the cooking! If you’re unable to cook for yourself, or would like a break from cooking, we can help you maintain adequate nutrition and a balanced diet by organising meals
to be delivered to you from our restaurant.
Deliveries are free of charge.
We have a podiatrist onsite three days a week. They are also available by appointment on certain days.
As we age, problems like memory loss or poor eyesight can start to impact the practical aspects of taking medication. The number of medications prescribed also tends to increase as we get older and
this can become challenging to manage.
Our Care Team can help you to manage your medications to prevent you from accidentally taking more than you need, or not taking enough. We will work together with your general practitioner and pharmacist to find solutions to medication management challenges.
We can arrange access to external support services such as social clubs to help you get more involved in your local community:
- Day Centres
- Dementia Support Australia
- Town of Cambridge
- Cambridge Library
