All sites provide permanent and respite care. Our philosophy is to provide a secure and comfortable environment that promotes the highest physical and mental function to optimise quality of life. All bedrooms are of sufficient size to enable private personal visits by family and friends and provision for personal touches from home.
The Lifestyle Program for the residents includes crafts, gardening, music, outings, games, current affairs, aromatherapy, massage and special event days.
Community groups regularly visit. Religious needs are also accommodated.
Personal services provided include a laundry service (included in the fee), a daily newspaper delivery, podiatry, prescription filling service and hairdressing.
Relatives and friends are encouraged to visit at any time. Tea and coffee facilities are available.
When arranging medical care, clients and/or their relatives are able to select the medical practitioner of their choice. Medical practitioners visit on a regular basis and in cases of acute need, the medical practitioner or their designated stand-in will be contacted for consultation. Access to specialist services such as physiotherapists, dietitian, dentist, optometrist and audiologist can be arranged through consultation with nursing staff and medical practitioners, as required.
