Adria Village is known as one of Canberra’s best aged care facilities and it is located in the south side suburb of Stirling. Established in 1994, the Village has accommodated many elderly people from Canberra and the surrounding districts that require low to high care and respite to long term accommodation. The Village is a 24 hour facility that runs on a very high professional level of care. This is evident as our staff would show extreme dedication by making the lives of our residents feel safe, comfortable and enjoyable.
We at the Adria Village provide accommodation for 40 permanent residents and another two beds are for respite care. Twelve permanent places are located in the dementia ward and all rooms have bathroom facilities. The Village has very high cleaning standards so residents' rooms are cleaned regularly; this includes the frequent cleaning of their utilities. We also provide laundry services for our residents. Our kitchen staff provides a variety of breakfasts, lunches and dinners, as well as morning and afternoon tea. As part of our care practice we accommodate residents’ dietary needs.
Adria Village also manages 36 established independent living self-care units. Our philosophy is to provide the highest quality of care to the aged care person of any nationality and any age over 65, giving them assistance to live with dignity & as independently as possible. We pride ourselves in practising respect and security, as well as providing a sense of grace and integrity to our residents on a daily basis. Our staff would encourage our residents with individuality and communication.
This would also involve inviting the residents to take part in a variety of activities on a cultural, social and religious basis within the Village atmosphere. On a weekly basis, many of the residents enjoy going on excursions around Canberra to places such as the zoo, art gallery, lookouts, museums and on shopping trips. Many also enjoy the in-house activities such as arts and crafts, bingo, birthday celebrations, mobile library, playing board games and doing puzzles.
While there is a Registered Nurse on duty at all times, other medical representatives such as ambulance, resident doctors, Podiatrist and Physiotherapist are on call. Adria Village also on a weekly basis has an in-house Hairdresser that comes and cuts, colours and styles. The Village has a chapel where residents of any religion have the right to worship.
We at Adria Village care for the elderly so ring or drop in and feel free to talk to any of our compassionate and friendly staff.
