Southern Cross Care (SCC), was proud to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Frank Prendergast House on Wednesday 1 May.

Frank Prendergast House, a residential high care facility is perhaps Southern Cross Care’s greatest example of its commitment to quality of life for those suffering dementia or exhibiting challenging behaviours. It was constructed, equipped and staffed with the needs of people with dementia in mind.

Receiving its first residents in September 2002, this superbly equipped, five-star facility had over half of its seventy three beds allocated to dementia residents and a special eight bed unit was built for other residents with challenging behaviours. This was in fact the first mental health unit of its kind in Western Australia.

The centre was named after former Southern Cross Care Chairman and Board Member, Frank Prendergast Frank who retired from the SCC Board late last year after serving an impressive 28 years and earning himself the title of Southern Cross Care’s longest serving Board Member.

Joining in the afternoon tea celebrations was the City of Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett, SCC staff and board members and residents of both Frank Prendergast House and the co-located Success Retirement Village.
