Community Connections

At Juniper, we understand the importance of community and culture – which is why we put it at the heart of everything we do. We celebrate and embrace the local communities we work in, striving to contribute to and connect our customers with their local community.

Just a few of our partnerships

In the community

  • Lawn Bowls WA: Juniper is honoured to be a proud sponsor of Bowls WA. Through this partnership, we encourage active engagement, friendly competition, and social connections.
  • Mandurah Bowling Club, Como Bowling Club and Kardinya Bowling Clubs: Sponsoring local bowling clubs ensures that locals can stay connected with their local community.
  • Intergenerational activities: Several of our Residential Aged Care homes enjoy relationships with local early learning centres and schools. Community Daycare children are regular visitors to Bethshan residents in Katanning; children from Gowrie Early Learning and Community Services have become pen pals with our Korumup residents in Albany; and Perth College students visit residents at St David’s Residential Aged Care Home in Mt Lawley.
  • Western Australian Nursing and Midwifery Awards
  • Motion by the Ocean – Cycling Without Age Sorrento
  • Seniors Recreation Council of WA – Have A Go Day
  • Palliative Aged Care Outcomes Program (PACOP) Commissioned by WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) and supported by the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care.

In Education

  • Notre Dame Nursing Students: We actively engage with nursing students from Notre Dame University, fostering an environment of shared learning and growth that benefits both our residents and the future healthcare professionals.
  • Juniper Interprofessional Practice Program (IPP) with Curtin University: At Juniper Annesley, we’ve established an innovative program with Curtin University, hosting up to 18 students onsite at a time. This program has been transformative, allowing students from various disciplines, including Pharmacy and Medicine, to collaborate and enhance their understanding of resident care. It’s a win-win, benefiting our Allied Health students while providing Pharmacy and Medical students valuable insights into the experiences of residents in a Residential Aged Care Facility (RACF).
  • Curtin University’s Senior Citizen Programme: As proud participants in Curtin University’s Senior Citizen Programme, we contribute to a groundbreaking five-year holistic approach to studying healthy aging, ensuring that future healthcare professionals are well-prepared to meet the unique needs of older adults.
  • Student Placement Opportunities: We actively provide opportunities for student placements at Notre Dame University, Edith Cowan University, Charles Darwin University, North Metro TAFE, Central Regional TAFE, Institute of Health and Nursing Australia (IHNA), Australian Employment and Training Services (AEATS), Australian Higher Education Academy (AHEA), and Harrisdale Senior High School.
