Baptistcare Kalkarni Residential Care

Kalkarni Residential Care

Kalkarni is located in the Wheatbelt town of Brookton, 138 km south east of Perth.

If you are looking for a country lifestyle, Brookton – known for its extensive parks and gardens – could be the place for you.

You can expect a warm, welcome at Kalkarni from our friendly team. Our facility is very much a part of the 1000-strong local community and has an active visitors scheme to ensure you won’t be short of company.

Co-located with a health centre, Kalkarni boasts modern facilities, landscaped gardens and a peaceful, natural bush setting. You will also enjoy the convenience of a park and café only a short walk away.

Our lounge and quiet areas are ideal spots to relax or entertain visiting family and friends.

All Baptistcare owned and managed properties are smoke free.
