Enjoying life in the home you love can require some extra support as you grow older. For fifty years, Coolibah has provided a strong, caring partnership to assist local people to continue to live a rich and fulfilling life in the community they love.
Coolibah’s strength is that we work with you to define exactly what you need. You get the right assistance for you, at the right time, in the right place. We also understand that carers sometimes need a break. We are always available, so when your needs change, we can respond quickly to adapt the service or provide a respite placement for a short period.
As the expert in your own life, you remain in charge.

What makes Coolibah Care Community stand out?
Coolibah’s mission to improve the lives of older people in our community, by promoting inclusion, engagement and independence, is a strong statement of commitment of support to you.
There are many ways that Coolibah is different to others in this field and it’s the Coolibah difference that makes our service stand out.
- The relationships you have with your carers are amongst the most vital in your life. Coolibah commits to providing the same carers whenever possible, so you get to know them and they get to know you and how you like things done.
- We strive to build a team of carers for you to choose from, who you feel comfortable having in your home.
- We understand how important it is for you to have control over the way your day unfolds and for carers to come to you at the time that works best for you, and for them to be on time. We arrive at appointments when we say we will, so you can get on with your daily schedule. Allow us just 15 minutes leeway for unexpected delays, such as traffic.
- Know you are getting the best! We spend a lot of time ensuring we employ the best possible people available – trained and experienced. All our carers must pass Coolibah’s stringent on-the-job assessments before they can work one-on-one with you.
