The home is located a short distance from the beach and Stuart Park which is a large picnic area where the hang-gliders land.
We provide high level care to 31 residents and we have one respite room. Wollongong is an older style facility with the accommodation offered in either one of four single rooms or a shared room with two, three or four beds.
It is a small facility and offers a home-like environment with catering done on-site and laundry facilities.
We offer a varied activities program catering to the resident's needs and fulfilling requests. The program includes small group activities (such as BBQs using our new covered outdoor area), outings (including wheelchair walks to Stuart Park), craft work and individualised activities.
We offer Chaplain services by the Presbyterian, Baptist and Roman Catholic Churches, and other religious/spiritual personnel can contacted on reques.
There are strong ties to the local community and Wollongong is blessed to receive weekly visits from Red Cross volunteers, community visitors and a therapy dog.
We have flexible visiting hours and visitors are welcome to use a small kitchen during their stay.
Our home is serviced by a large number of doctors and we have links with Wollongong Hospital and with the Illawarra Division of General Practitioner's on medication management, as well as other health professionals.
