NewDirection Care at Bellmere is pioneering an innovative approach to residential aged care for the elderly and for those living with younger onset dementia and complex care needs. We were proud to be part of this new approach which is creating a world that is as close to normality as possible.

Natasha Chadwick, founder of NewDirection, is the 2019 Telstra QLD Business Woman of the Year and has been recognised for her vision and passion in driving this facility.

This new residential aged care microtown includes 17 beautifully finished homes which feature an open-plan kitchen furnished with modern appliances, laundry, family dining room and cosy sitting rooms that are ideal for relaxing and receiving visitors. Each house accommodates 7 residents.

Shaynna Blaze, Blank Canvas, was the Interior Designer on this project who had a very unique and innovated approach to furniture and fabric choices. Shaynna is an award-winning interior designer and well known for her television roles on Australian renovation shows.

We worked with Shaynna to supply aged care and dementia specific beds and furniture for 120 rooms, all of them with a different style, fabric and stain combination to create a unique environment to every room.

The rooms used a combination of King Single, Double and Queen Hi-Lo Beds, in addition to furniture which was designed specially to suit their design requirements and suit the style of house.

Our experienced delivery and installation team worked to ensure all items were delivered and installed correctly across the 17 houses. Shaynna’s vision was to have a unique feel to each room which meant our installation team had to carefully prepare, locate and install 10 unique and specifically chosen items for each room 120 times over. This is something they did seamlessly.

"We engaged Wentworth Care Furniture for a large commercial project in Bellmere, Queensland, in
2017. We were exceptionally pleased with their offering and service from first meeting through to
final installation.

Their outstanding service included supply, delivery and installation of 120 Hi-Lo beds, bedframes,
bedheads, bedside tables and mattresses. Many of these elements had unique finishes and
varied detailing as per our design direction, working collaboratively with us to develop custom
designs that are beautiful whilst maintaining all industry requirements and standards.

There was a high level of detail on this project. Wentworth delivered on time, in full, and without

Wentworth were able to accommodate our specific staggered delivery schedule and they were on
site to ensure smooth delivery and installation.

Tamlyn Carr and the team delivered on every agreement and were a joy to work with."
