When she’s not running around with her hair on fire, Alannah makes it her mission to hunt down the best breakfast spot on the coast, or simply head outdoors to enjoy all the wonders that the Sunshine Coast has to offer. When at home, you’ll generally find her in the kitchen, the garden or with her head in a book.

Fred Andrews. The inspiration of our business.

Fred died of a progressive neurological condition called supranuclear palsy. We cared for him at home with the help of a number of very competent, supportive healthcare workers but we found at times their lack of communication and co-ordination between each other disappointing. So many different organisations were involved in his care and we were left having to try and co-0rdinate everything (and everyone) ourselves adding stress to any already stressful time. Sunshine Coast Health Services’ mission is to provide the services you require within a single healthcare centre.
