Welcome to our new Huntington's disease village at Piara Waters

We are excited to be in the planning stages for our new Huntington's disease campus in Piara Waters. 

Brightwater Care Group has a long history of supporting people, and their families, with Huntington's disease and we are building a purpose-built home for the people we care for in the southern suburb of Piara Waters. 

This page is designed to provide regular updates and links to resources for our clients, future clients, families, friends and other key stakeholders throughout the development and build of this exciting new project.  If you have any questions about the project, please don't hesitate to email [email protected] 

About the project

Brightwater Care Group provides support for people living with Huntington’s disease at Kailis House in Belmont for people in early stages of the disease and Ellison House in Carlisle for people in later stages of the disease. 

Whilst these supported independent living sites have been wonderful in many ways for the clients and their families who have called them their home, we know there is great interest in advancing the opportunity to create a new home that is purpose-built to support people with Huntington’s disease. 

We are currently in the early planning stages and pending development approval, we are hoping to commence building in the middle of 2022.
