About us

A Brief History of Carinya Care Services…

In 1967 Mr. Basire built the original nursing home at 41 Bristol Ave Bicton. It was named as Carinya Nursing Home and was able to accommodate 21 residents.

Carinya Care Services is ideally situated close to shops transport and is on main artery leading to the highway and being approximately 10 minutes from Fremantle. We are located south of the Swan River in a quiet, leafy residential area and have earned an enviable reputation in the aged care industry for providing effective, sensitive and ethical care.

With the changes in the aged care industry from 1997, Laurie Basire was proactive in the need to upgrade the accommodation that was Carinya Nursing Home since 1967. He purchased Bicton Private Hospital as it was in very close proximity to Carinya Nursing Home. Being a builder, Laurie Basire commenced extensive renovations and refurbishment to make the new facility meet all Commonwealth standards and to improve the standard of accommodation for our residents. It was completed in 1998 and we transferred our residents into their new home located at 220 Preston Point Road. This facility accommodates 73 residents.

We believe that it is our staff that makes Carinya a special place to be, when you are no longer able to remain in your own home.
