Living life as usual at Japara

Living in an aged care home doesn’t mean that you need to give up particular activities, or even jobs that you usually enjoy doing.

Whether it’s cooking, gardening, cleaning, making a cup of tea or even playing with pets, residents at our South West Rocks home are able to closely replicate their usual lives on a day-to-day basis.

Maintaining this sense of routine and responsibility is extremely important for our residents, and we are committed to offering them a wide variety of lifestyle options.
