Providing excellence in care since 1986.
Woombye Care Inc. is a non-profit, non-denominational care facility for the elderly and disabled, located in the town of Woombye, on the Sunshine Coast.The establishment is situated in a serene rainforest setting, with a relaxing, homelike atmosphere and ample facilities. Our goal is to provide security, privacy and comfort to our residents at no cost to their dignity or independence. We believe that “Small is Beautiful” and to that belief all units are built to a domestic size and style. All activities are planned to have a low ecological impact and residents form real relationships with our staff.
Woombye Care was founded in 1986 specifically to provide accommodation for fully supported persons in the community who found it hard to access mainstream hostels, such as those with dementia and other psychiatric disorders. In 1996 the Community Care Service was formulated, providing convenient care to those who wish to still live in their own homes. Today we boast a 99% occupancy rate, with happy staff and happier residents. We are continually looking at ways to improve and expand, without negatively impacting our surroundings.
Our grounds are well maintained and harmonious with the surrounding forest area and nearby creek. Our landscaping, gardening and waste management are continuously updated to ensure a healthy, regenerative habitat and natural ecosystem.
Woombye Care offers a choice of lifestyle options tailored to suit residents’ individual needs. We offer government-funded lodging in an open-hostel style facility as well as secure accommodation for residents who need the extra safety. We also offer unfunded lodging with serviced beds and private facilities.

We offer residents assistance with all of their daily living activities, including management of medication, arranging transport and appointments and many other small tasks that are no longer as simple as they used to be. We also boast regular visits from allied health professionals, including doctors, speech therapists, physios, massage therapists, podiatrists and dentists as well as visits from a local hairdresser. Residents can take part in the weekly church services run by the Ministers Fraternal. Additionally, a pastor is on-call for residents, relatives and staff for advice and counselling.
