Support our vision for the Huntington's Community!

We are excited to be in the construction stage 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 purpose-built houses for the people we care for in the southern suburb of Piara Waters. Brightwater Care Group currently 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.

About the project

This new world class campus, is being purpose-built to the highest standards, to support people with Huntington’s disease and provide accommodation for 21 clients over 7 homes. Each home will be certified as a Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) designed for people with extreme functional impairment or very high needs. 

The residential campus will include 21 bedrooms and ensuites over seven houses with specialist assistive equipment and leading edge technology. Importantly, it will also include a sensory garden with zones for living, relaxing, engaging and socialising.

Thank you for supporting our building appeal. Your generosity will help Brightwater fulfil our vision to develop a world class facility supporting people with Huntington's Disease and their families.

About Huntington's Disease

Huntington’s Disease is an inherited disease affecting areas in the brain which control movement, thinking and emotion. It has a slow progression, and symptoms gradually worsen over time. While there is no cure for Huntington's Disease at this time there are medications and therapies that may alleviate some of the more common symptoms of the disease.

The impact on a family of even one person with Huntington’s is significant, and more commonly, there are a few people across generations who inherit the gene. For this reason, the Huntington’s campus is not only about the people who we provide direct care for, but also their immediate and extended families.

For more information about Huntington's disease visit the Huntington's Western Australia website.

Supporting Brightwater Leaf by Leaf

Secure your leaf on the Leaves of Life wall today

Our new Brightwater campus in Inglewood is not just home to our head office and newest residential aged care facility. It is also set to become a place of celebration and remembrance through a wall art installation that is beginning to take shape.

The Leaves of Life artwork will feature 460 stainless steel leaves that are engraved in honour of a person or an organisation with a connection to Brightwater, or for those that wish to acknowledge the work that we do. The leaves can be purchased by families, individuals and corporate supporters at a cost of $500 per leaf. They will be engraved with a personal message and installed on the wall, with donors invited back to view and, if they wish, have a photograph taken with their leaf. Each leaf comes with a Certificate of Acknowledgement.

How to leave a gift in your will

Your donations also help to fund the following programs:

  • Life's Possibilities

    Life's Possibilities is dedicated to opening up new opportunities for our clients by providing support for activities, outings, events, experiences or comfort that improves their socialisation and wellbeing.

    This includes experiences that they’ve always dreamed of doing – it may be something as simple as attending a concert, swimming lessons, art classes or visiting the art gallery and museum.

    Donations could help provide plants and tools to create a simple garden, or equipment that makes daily life more comfortable and rewarding. Or, they could help overcome distance and practical obstacles by supporting clients to reunite with family who live far away.

    Life's Possibilities granted Lisa's wish to see Jimmy Barnes live. Read more here.

  • The Music Pharmacy

    The Music Pharmacy gives aged care clients the chance to get involved in beneficial music programs, specifically tailored to their needs and preferences. This unique program uses evidence-based practice to link neuroscience, music therapy and psychology with music and social wellbeing.

    Your generous gift will help cover the cost of instruments, equipment, music subscriptions and staff resources for thousands of Brightwater clients.

  • Brightwater Research Centre

    Your gift can also help support research initiatives through the Brightwater Research Centre.

    Behind the scenes, our researchers make a difference to the lives of many. Their findings justify our investment in new ideas and technology, and pave the way for innovation in aged care and disability support.
