Columbia Aged Care Services is a private health care group offering residential aged care facilities in a number of locations across Sydney. We focus on the care, comfort and consideration of our residents. We provide them with the highest quality health care, respect their individuality and assist them to maintain their health and wellbeing.
The Acacia Centre is located in Marrickville and is a 188 place centre which caters for high level care residents in a mix of single and shared rooms. It consists of three wings called the Waratah, Grevillea and the Banksia. Each wing has access to gardens which is a favourite area for residents and their families to relax and enjoy.
Special ramps have been provided for easy access into these areas. The Centre offers therapy and recreational facilities. Each day of the week offers new and varied activities ranging from in-house fitness and craft classes, through to taking residents out to community events and activities.
Hairdressers visit on a regular basis and newspapers are delivered daily. Massage, aromatherapy and other natural therapies are also used and encouraged. Residents can enjoy the garden in all weather in the central atrium, courtyards and undercover areas. Special morning teas and activities are held in these areas.
The Acacia Centre also caters for residents from Greek, Chinese and Portuguese descent. Respite care is offered at high care level and residents with Dementia are catered for. The Acacia Centre is situated on the main bus 425 route to Sydenham Station and bus route 426 to the City and is only 15 minutes walk from the Dulwich Hill station and 15 minutes drive to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. Churches and shops are within walking distance.
Care, comfort and consideration
Columbia Aged Care Services centres provide a wide range of care and service depending on individual needs. In particular, we provide quality care to those with special needs. We are proud to say that our accreditation standards surpass the government standards in many areas.
One of the ways we achieve this standard is through extensive ongoing consultation with residents, families and staff. We offer residential aged care accommodation including low care, high care and respite care (including emergency respite); residents with Dementia are also catered for. There is a mix of single and shared rooms and all centres are secure. Each of our centres meets the needs of their local community.
Columbia is committed to recognising and respecting the cultural diversity of all of our residents. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a high standard of care including therapy and recreational services at a Columbia Aged Care Centre.
