Dementia Care

Our Lady of Consolation provides specialised residential care and support to people with dementia in our secure dementia-specific care units at our Rooty Hill campus. We have two dementia-specific facilities, both with easy access to a secure, safe garden area.

Assunta is our 36 bed dementia specific unit for people who may initially only require low level care but need the security of a dementia care environment and the support of staff who have been specially trained for that role.

 

St Anthony’s is our 21 bed care unit within our high care facility. It is a specialised unit, like Assunta, but one that is more suited to those with higher care needs.

We support and care for each individual living with dementia in a person centred way, with an appropriate, consistent and competent team of staff led by effective management within supportive and safe environments.

We offer weekly supervised bus trips for residents living in Assunta and they are able to take part in a range of other activities on campus. Residents in St Anthony’s have three bus trips each month.

We recognise that someone with Dementia can be approved for our High Care, Low Care and also Respite Care services. For this reason we are careful to ensure that each person with Dementia is cared for in the best possible environment we can provide.

Our low care facilities operate within an Ageing in Place philosophy, which means that a resident may be able to continue living in a non-dementia specific area.
