The Braemar Story

For 65 years, Braemar has been providing relationship-centred care to the people of Western Australia.

Braemar opened its doors to the elderly of our community in November 1952. Braemar was founded off the vision of  a member of the Presbyterian Church, who gifted her possessions to assist in the creation of a home for aged people. That original facility was established in East Fremantle and today forms part of the Braemar House property.

Since 1952, many people have embraced our vision to provide high-quality aged care and residential accommodation. Today, with the dedicated service of our staff and volunteers, Braemar provides fully accredited aged care and dementia services in an engaging and friendly environment.

Our three facilities in the City of Melville and East Fremantle area provide residents with a relationship centred care approach. This approach ensures we acknowledge and respect the needs, wants and wishes of each individual resident. Our team are dedicated to care for not only the physical needs of our residents, but their emotional, spiritual and enrichment desires.

To this end, Braemar offers a dedicated chaplaincy service, and a robust programme of resident enrichment that includes insights lectures, workshops and meaningful activities such as iPad lessons, or handy craft activities in relationship with the local Bunnings.

As a community ministry of the Presbyterian Church in Western Australia, Braemar is a faith based not for profit organisation. Our committee members are appointed by the Church and assist the executive team to guide the organisaiton in achieving its mission.
