William Carey Court Residential Care

William Carey Court is located in the coastal town of Busselton in WA’s South West.

You can expect a warm welcome from the friendly staff at William Carey Court who aim to make all our residents feel special. We are very much a part of the local community, and enjoy visits from many community groups who come to provide company and entertainment.

Nestled amongst trees, our grounds feature extensive, pretty gardens. The beach, parklands, local shopping centre and café, are all close by and are great destinations for outings with visiting friends and family.

William Carey Court has several small kitchens, dining and lounge areas that create a home-like atmosphere. Common rooms are bright and spacious and well used for the many social activities.

All building areas are smoke free.
