The Rooms

Each room has been designed to help you feel comfortable and at home within your own personal space. The furniture, fittings and service connections give residents the flexibility to make the room their own and add homely touches throughout.

Full length windows allow abundant light in and are tinted for privacy and temperature control. The spacious ensuite includes quality fittings and accessible layout. Each room can support high or low care resident needs, with 24 hour care at hand.

Care needs at Mary Damian

The Mary Damian residence supports ‘ageing in place’, meaning it can support a range of high and low care needs, without people needing to move. The facility also provides specialised care for people ageing with intellectual and other disabilities.

Our philosophy of care supports integration of residents with dementia within mainstream aged care and the service welcomes residents with dementia and people ageing with intellectual disability.

We believe that resident life and personal outcomes are significantly improved through:

  • maintaining social networks
  • supporting the normal activities of daily living
  • implementing individual programs that focus on capacity

Specific dementia programs, staff training and building design support and promote resident growth, independence and choice.

Food and dining

Meals at Mary Damian are lovingly prepared by our own chefs and cook staff in house. They prepare nutritious dining options with local, seasonal fare, catering to a variety of dietary needs and food preferences.

Each meal time is a chance not just to enjoy the delicious food, but to enjoy the company of friends and neighbours. Residents can also get together at weekly happy hours before dinner. Or meet at one of our local on-site cafes for fresh barista coffee or tea and something sweet to enjoy.

 

Visiting hours
