Room Description
These rooms are located in the four wings on the ground floor of James Barker House. The ground floor (category one) has 60 beds across four wings, A, B, C & D. The majority of the residents here are supported in dealing with issues related to (for example), alcohol dependency, acquired brain injury and mental illness. Residents on the ground floor may often be a little younger than many residents on the first floor. Each of the 120 spacious rooms has a nurse call facility, electronically-adjustable beds, ceiling fan, central heating, double glazed, lockable windows, lockable bedside table, overhead bed light, armchair, flatscreen television, en suite (commode and shower seat are also available), lockable cabinet, and built-in wardrobe. There is also space for residents wishing to bring in smaller items of their own furniture. All rooms are covered by the air conditioning throughout the James Barker House complex. Residents can elect to have Foxtel, broadband internet access and private phone through Telstra contracts. Many of the ground floor rooms and all of the first floor rooms have scenic views of the grounds, water features, courtyards and gardens, etc. The first floor rooms have access to communal balconies that also receive sun and shade in due time and season.
Common Areas Description
The multicultural community of residents is cared for by a highly skilled, motivated multicultural staff, which includes people from The Philippines, Vietnam, African nations such as Nigeria and Somalia, Macedonia and Poland. The ambient, vibrant colour schemes throughout the facility lighten the heart and gladden the eye. Another appealing design feature of the rooms is that they flow from the hallways into numerous communal hubs, common areas, dining rooms and lounges, offering easy access to the facilities of the centre. These facilities include a hairdresser service, the library (with facilities for vision-impaired residents), public phones, the chapel, dedicated areas for leisure activities such as billiard tables, indoor bowls and bingo, and the manicured gardens, water features, the barbeque green, aviaries and courtyards.
