Doutta Galla Queens Park Aged Care Facility
Doutta Galla Queens Park is a 45 room facility with 16 independent living units, offering permanent and respite care, along with dementia care. Rooms are spacious and private with ensuite bathrooms.
Built in 1999, just across the road from beautiful Queens Park, and a short walk from Puckle Street.
Queens Park staff, residents, families and volunteers are proud of the homelike atmosphere they create together. A busy Lifestyle program keeps everyone active and enjoying life.
With the local swimming pool, recreation centre, racecourse, theatre, park, library, public transport and shops nearby, there’s plenty to do at the doorstep too.
Queens Park has a group of dedicated volunteers – some have been with us for more than 13 years – who support individual residents, as well as running activities and workshops for everyone. Our famous Pop-Up Café was started by volunteers, and is a weekly highlight.
We welcome people of all cultures, nationalities, faiths and language groups.
