Review Lorocco

Lorocco

We offer 50 well-appointed, spacious single suites with private ensuites. Our location is conveniently close to Carindale Shopping Centre, multiple hospitals and other local services.

We specialise in care for residents with dementia and palliative care needs. The Terrace is a boutique home for 17 residents who require specialist high care including dementia-specific needs. The remaining 33 beds are allocated to caring for residents with varying social and nursing care needs. Our experienced chefs prepare a range of freshly cooked, tasty meal choices in our on-site kitchen. The chefs also happily cater for individual specialised diets.

We understand the importance of having your own personal space. Our comfortable, spacious, fully furnished suites are designed to help you feel at home.

Several of our residents’ loved ones live just next door at our Con Noi retirement complex, knowing they’re being well cared for.

Lorocco is a non-smoking home.

need more staff on afternoon shift. No staff in dining room when residents are eating. Food and menu needs a lot of work. Food served not suitable for seniors.

Dear Edmund4931, Thank you very much for taking the time to share this with us. We will certainly be reviewing your feedback as part of our ongoing continuous improvement program. For information, Lorocco monitors its staffing levels continuously to ensure care needs are met to the high standards we expect. From our information, Lorocco’s staffing levels are at least 15% higher than industry average. Lorocco is proud of its menu and overall dining experience. The menu has been designed through consultation with residents and families to provide a range of choices and is reviewed by a certified dietician. However, we are very interested in your specific feedback and Lorocco management are more than happy to discuss these comments further, if you wish. We can be contacted on (07) 3917 6800. Kind regards, Cheryl Targett Facility Manager - Lorocco

We currently have both parents in care and are more than happy that they receive at The Brook. The staff are amazing and sometimes my Dad does not recognize me but he always has a😊smile for the carers. We would recommend The Brook to anyone.....

My Dad moved into Care in November last year. The staff at Carindale Brook have not only made my Dad feel at home but have helped my Mum and our family adjust to this very stressful change. Mum and Dad have been together since their late teens, Dad is now 87 and Mum 85. You need a very special person to work in a Nursing Home and we are very lucky to have them all at Carindale Brook.
