Immunisation

Our registered nurse arranges immunisation for residents with their medical practitioner.

All residents and regular visitors over 65 years or 50 years for indigenous residents/regular visitors, are encouraged to have annual influenza vaccination and if eligible, pneumococcal vaccination.

Physiotherapy

If required, an assessment will be performed for a resident by a qualified physiotherapist and/or a Registered Nurse and an individual care plan developed for the resident depending on their particular needs. The program is carried out by care staff and reviewed by the Physiotherapist.

Podiatry

A podiatrist visits every 6-8 weeks for those residents with an assessed need. This is a no charge service.

Complimentary Therapies

Residents wishing to continue other complimentary therapies will be supported to do so.

Hair Dresser

A hairdresser visits weekly and offers cuts or trims, perms and colours. A list of current prices is displayed on the main notice board.

Clothing and Laundry

A full laundry service operates at no additional cost to residents. This service will wash all clothing items that can be washed by a standard machine cycle and tumble dried. Items requiring special care, such as woollens, need to be attended to by the family.

Clothing labels may be ordered on admission and laundry staff will label clothing as required. There is a nominal charge for this service.

Residents are required at all times to be respectfully and fully dressed.
