Welcome to CraigCare Ascot Waters.
The care community you’ve been waiting for.
CraigCare Ascot Waters has been designed with a warm and familiar home-like lifestyle in mind.
Ascot Waters aged care home offers individual rooms with personalised care. The home contains 164 single bedrooms each with private ensuites. We understand the importance of personal space and our rooms are designed to be comfortable and secure. Each room has its own private ensuite, generous built-in robes, emergency call button, a landline phone, and free to air television.
We’ve created environments where family is the focus. We want children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, everyone to feel welcome. It’s their home too. Spacious dining rooms, and living spaces full of natural light provide the perfect space to relax, socialise and entertain family and friends. The home offers private dining facilities specifically to be used by residents and their family and friends for special events (e.g. birthday parties). We also have an onsite café with alfresco dining which is the perfect place to catch up with family and friends.
Our beautiful gardens and courtyards are the ideal place to keep active. Tend to the herb and vegetable gardens or sit back and watch children and visiting pets play.
CraigCare Ascot Waters offers residents and their family the use of its very own cinema guaranteed to keep everyone entertained, a well-stocked music room and library, and a hair salon to keep you looking and feeling your best.
Quiet zones and more secluded spaces are also a feature of our design to allow for more private family visits.
There are no set visiting hours so you can drop in when you want and as often as you want.
If residents do not feel like venturing out, there are plenty of spaces to entertain family and friends who come to visit. There is an onsite café, cinema, music room, inviting lounge areas, private dining rooms, and plenty of outdoor spaces in our beautiful gardens to stroll through.
Some of our activities on offer include:
Weekly Outings. Each week the CraigCare bus takes residents on outings to destinations such as the cinema, a spot of lunch at the beach or Fremantle, the local library, Crown Casino, Ascot racetrack and to local club sports and clubs. We also visit the local shopping centre so you can still enjoy the freedom of doing your own shopping.
Hobbies and Activities. Organised activities include card and board games, craft, men’s group, arts and crafts, knitting club, exercise classes, walking groups in the local parks, gardening, cooking lessons, bingo, movies, bowls, minigolf, a café social group and worship groups.
Children’s Program. Each week a group of children come to our Ascot Waters facility to engage with our residents and be read to.
Café. The café at our Ascot Waters facility is a social hub for all our residents and their visiting families and friends. The setting is tranquil and the coffee and food is amazing!
Visiting Pets. We believe in the healing power of pets, that’s why we always welcome your family pets to the centre for visits.
Ascot Waters care facility has a Lifestyle Coordinator who will work with you and your family to identify what leisure activities you derive joy and happiness from. This way we can ensure you continue to have the opportunity to participate in these activities. Click here to find out more.
