From humble beginnings as a small organisation to look after Circular Head’s elderly, Emmerton Park has grown to become one of the most successful community based organisations in Tasmania. It all started in 1964 when local businessman, Harry Emmerton bequeathed 14,000 pounds to Smithton Hospital for the purchase of equipment. The Hospital Board led by Arthur Ambrose proposed the money be used to establish housing for the elderly of the district.
Since then, local donations and fundraising efforts have enabled Emmerton Park to provide quality aged care services to the people of Circular Head, including the construction of the new Residential Aged Care facility for which the Community raised over $900,000.
The need for aged care services continues to grow with many families looking to Emmerton Park for the provision of aged care and retirement village services. Emmerton Park is ready to respond to these needs and invites people who understand the importance of well managed aged care facilities and services to support our donations and bequests program.
Emmerton Park acknowledges, and is appreciative of, donations received towards the purchase of equipment, furniture and facilities that assist us in providing optimal care and services to our care recipients and safer working environment for our staff and volunteers.
