Specialist dementia care
All Ryman Australian villages offer purpose-built dementia care facilities that provide a secure haven in a warm and homely environment for people with dementia and wandering issues.
Our dementia care units incorporate many unique design features to help residents find their way around – such as interesting wall decals and textural wall fittings. On each resident's door, a memory box has been fitted containing special possessions that help them recognise their room.
The open plan dining rooms and lounge areas encourage freedom of movement for the residents. This allows them to wander around the secure outdoor courtyards and garden areas, which have been specifically allocated to our special care residents.
Art, music, aromatherapy, exercise and water therapy are some of the activities we include in our extensive activities programme. This supports all degrees of physical and mental dependency, and has a positive impact on our residents’ quality of life.
Our centrally located nurse station and closed-circuit monitoring system ensures care staff can non-intrusively watch over residents while preserving their dignity.
Our staff are trained dementia care specialists, and look after residents in a positive and therapeutic manner.
