Why choose a Juniper

We're a WA not-for-profit

We’re here for you, not shareholders. We’ve been supporting older Western Australians for 75 years.


We nurture vibrant and caring communities, where you can choose to join and connect socially with your fellow-residents.


Each of our Retirement Living homes are fitted with a 24-hour personal alarm.


Many of our customers are planning for the future – for themselves or a loved one. Having Residential Aged Care homes co-located means they can stay close to loved ones.


We believe every older Western Australian has the right to a home. That’s why we have a range of properties, including affordable homes and rental options.

Experienced and Specialised

Aged Care is all we do, so we know it inside out. We provide care and accommodation to thousands of Western Australians.


As a not-for-profit organisation, we’re serious about our values of Welcome, Respect, Compassion, Hope and Courage.

Keep Being You

Safe and caring communities

Community is at the heart of the Juniper Retirement Living experience. And we love when our residents bring their passion and life experience to our communities. Our residents organise special-interest clubs, hold fantastic social events, or you can choose to join the large variety of regular activities.

“The sense of community living has been a great experience for us. I now go out on our balcony every day and thank God that I found this place. The people here are beautiful and will be our friends for life.”

“Juniper gave me a second chance of life and now I am 110% better. The security of having somewhere to live and people around me who were there for me when I needed them most changed my life. The amazing Retirement Living Coordinator made me stronger and got me back into the world.”

“Staying active doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. It’s the simple things, like going up and down stairs, a daily walk. Here at Rowethorpe residents can pop down to the local café, walk across the road and enjoy the lively atmosphere of Curtin University – there are loads of opportunities to explore.”

“My reason for moving here was because my husband was very ill and needed daily assistance. I love being surrounded by nice people and having a choice of where I can spend my time, whether it be in a group, or simply spending time reading in my home.”

Retirement Living - Frequently Asked Questions

While entering retired life is an exciting time, we also understand that moving into a Retirement Living Village is a life-changing decision that requires a lot of research. So, to put your mind at ease, we’ve compiled a list of ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ to help you understand the process!

What is the cost of joining a Juniper Retirement Living Community?

When you sign your capital share or non-capital share contract with us, you will be given a rundown of all the costs associated with living in our Retirement Living Communities. You don’t need to provide any information about your pension status, income or other assets.

We also strive to accommodate all our residents regardless of their financial situation. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, we can work with you to provide some accommodation on rental or can offer a reduced fee. If you meet the criteria, you must provide a Declaration of Income and Assets from Centrelink (contactable on 132 300) or DVA (contactable on 133 254).


Do you offer rentals at any of your Retirement Living Villages?

Yes! We have a number of affordable lease-for-life rentals at our St David’s, Rowethorpe, Rosemount and Chrystal Halliday Retirement Living Villages, which are all subject to availability.

However, to be eligible for these rentals, you must be 55 years and over, not be working full-time, and have no more than $80,000 in assets.

Read more about our rentals here.

What is the difference between retirement living and residential aged care?

Retirement living accommodates people over the age of 55 who are still able to live independently in the community and is completely separate to residential aged care, which provides 24/7 support for older people with complex or high care needs.

Is there storage available for my caravan or boat?

We do provide this amenity at some of our villages. Depending on space and availability, there is some storage for a boat or caravan available at our Juniper Rowethorpe Village.

There are also storage units available to rent for an additional cost at our Juniper RoseMount village.

Can I access Home Care services while living in a Juniper village?

Of course! Juniper offers in-home care services across home, clinical and social support through Government-funded Home Care Packages and the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP).

Home Care is all about keeping you independent at home, enjoying what you love in life, connected to your community. Juniper Home Care can support you at home to keep doing, or get back to, those things in life you find meaningful.

Learn more about our home care services here.

Can I receive rebates from the government?

Yes – you can check your eligibility for any government rebates by contacting Services Australia (formerly Centrelink) on 132 300.

Can my friends stay over?

Absolutely! We believe friendships are an important part of our residents’ social and mental wellbeing.

We just ask that you inform your village Retirement Living Coordinator of any short-stay guests, and for any longer stays of more than 14 consecutive days, you’ll need to get prior approval.

At our Juniper Rowethorpe campus in Bentley, we’ve even gone the extra step to make your family and friends feel more welcome with the opportunity to book an affordable one-bedroom, self-contained holiday apartment.

Are there any activities for Retirement Living residents?

There sure is! We believe staying connected to others on a social level is hugely important at Juniper.

There is a great sense of community across our Retirement Living Villages, with social committees established at most locations which welcome new members and provide ongoing social support, regular activities and events that you can choose to take part in.

So, whether you’re into movies, music, arts, crafts or dancing, there’s plenty to keep you busy so you can continue to get the most out of retired life!

Is there a doctor or allied health services, such as physiotherapy or podiatry, nearby?

Yes! Many of our Juniper Retirement Living communities are conveniently located close to shopping centres, health clinics and medical centres, which are often a short drive away.

At our Juniper Rowethorpe Campus, residents can access our on-site pharmacy and our day therapy centre offers physiotherapy, occupational therapy, podiatry, nursing and group classes which can be accessed through a Home Care Package or Commonwealth Home Support Programme.

Residents at our Juniper Chrystal Halliday Retirement Living community can also access our Juniper Day Therapy Centre, which includes community nursing, podiatry, physiotherapy and occupational therapy.

Can I access public transport?

Most of our Juniper Retirement Living communities are conveniently located with public transport routes right at its doorstep, meaning you can continue to get out and about to do the things you enjoy! There are also dedicated taxi pick-up and drop-off points located in some of our villages, such as Juniper Rowethorpe.

Can I bring my pets with me?

While we love animals and understand that pets can be an important part your life, out of respect for the comfort, hygiene and safety of all our residents, all pets are subject to approval of the Retirement Living Coordinator at each of our villages.

Do I need to pay insurance?

When you move into your new home, Juniper provides insurance cover for anything related to the building and overall village site, including fixing any shared amenities or structural issues with your property.

However, residents need to organise their own contents and personal insurance.

Do you provide any security at your villages?

We want to ensure all our residents feel safe within our Retirement Living communities, which is why we provide a wearable/mobile safety pendant for all our residents which can be activated within village grounds in the event of an emergency.

In addition, each village property is fitted with a fixed safety alert unit that can also be activated during an emergency.

Upon activating either the mobile device or fixed safety alert unit, the corresponding security company is notified. If emergency services (police, fire or ambulance) are required, the security company will notify them on your behalf and share your location.

The service operates 24/7 and can only be activated within the village grounds.

How long can I stay in a Juniper Retirement Living community?

You can stay as long as you want! Once you sign your lease-for-life contract or your capital or non-capital share agreement, you have the right to stay for as long as you want.

However, it’s always a good idea to read your agreement and disclosure documents and seek any legal or financial advice before making any big decisions.

What happens when I need Residential Aged Care?

We understand your circumstances can change and things can happen when you least expect.

If you are no longer able to live independently and are considering going into Residential Aged Care, Juniper has a range of Residential Aged Care homes around the Perth metropolitan area, and in some regional locations, and we will do our best to help you with this transition.

However, keep in mind that we can’t guarantee your spot at one of our Residential Aged Care Homes, which is subject to availability, and you must cover all fees and charges associated with going into Residential Aged Care.

While our team are on hand to offer some guidance and support during this process, it is also your responsibility to check whether you meet aged care eligibility and assessment through My Aged Care.


What if I have a complaint?

We take our residents’ complaints seriously at Juniper and want to ensure everyone is heard. You can voice any concerns or complaints directly to your Retirement Living Coordinator, or you can raise it with your village committee. We take every complaint onboard and do our best to resolve it within a reasonable timeframe.

Still unsure and have other questions you’d like to ask?
