There is a new owner for the communal Residential Aged Care community of 178 residents in Bethania.
Opal HealthCare will now operate the residential aged care community co-located with the Jeta Gardens Retirement Village at Bethania.
Set on a bend of the Logan River, the Jeta Gardens precinct sits on 64 acres and is divided into two parts; a Retirement Village for independent residents owned and run by its current owner KPJ Healthcare, and a separate larger communal Residential Aged Care community of 178 residents that will now be owned and operated by Opal HealthCare and has been renamed Bethania Parklands Care Community.
Opal HealthCare is a specialist residential aged care provider with a proud track record of caring for people and their individual needs and preferences as they age. It has 16 existing care communities across south-east Queensland including Springwood Terrace and Berrinba Greens in the Logan area.
Opal HealthCare’s signature design features include spacious indoor and outdoor living spaces, resident kitchens with modern appliances, cafés, hair salons, dedicated memory care neighbourhoods for residents living with dementia, green outdoor spaces, edible gardens, Registered Nurses onsite 24/7 and off-street parking for visitors.
Opal HealthCare CEO Rachel Argaman said she was delighted that Logan residents would now have another Opal HealthCare option in the Logan district.
“For us, quality aged care isn’t just about buildings or a lifestyle choice, it’s about empathy, quality of life, and belonging,” Ms Argaman said.
“Enabling people to remain in their community as they age, with access to the right care and support when they need it, is vital to wellbeing. We will continue to nurture the strong connections between residents at Bethania Parklands Care Community and Jeta Gardens Retirement Village for the benefit of residents, families, and the Logan community.”
As part of the transition, the majority of the current Jeta Gardens Aged Care team members will move across to Opal HealthCare, to provide continuity of care for residents.
In addition, with a long-standing presence in south-east Queensland, Opal HealthCare will also be able to draw on its local leadership capability and deep well of dedicated team members over time.
Opal HealthCare is one of the only aged care providers in Australia with its own training academy that supports team members with career pathways, training, and development opportunities, building the best skills and experience to care for residents.
It agreed to purchase the Jeta Gardens residential aged care community from KPJ Healthcare in December last year, with the transaction taking effect from today.
