Centrally located in Newtown is this large aged care facility of 120 residents. It includes a secure unit for specialist care of those residents living with dementia.
In 2011 Rosary Gardens opened two special palliative care rooms designed to meet the needs of residents and families during end of life care. These spacious, pleasantly decorated rooms are designed to provide space for families to spend extended periods of time including overnight stays with their loved one.
Not far from the busy Moonah shopping centre and surrounded by historic buildings dating back to early last century, Rosary Gardens is handy to transport with a regular bus passing the front door or a short walk to the main road.
The design of the pleasantly refurbished building takes great advantage of the stunning well-established gardens with many quiet sitting spots capturing the sun or the shade depending on the season. The grounds are level making it a pleasure to admire the roses and fuchsias or wander over to the kiosk for a cappuccino or light lunch with friends or family.
The garden theme is continued with the stunning indoor conservatory full of tropical flowers and gentle babbling fountain. Adjacent to this is a large communal area used for a wide range of activities and celebratory events. The large peaceful Chapel is host to regular Church services for all denominations including Mass conducted in Polish on Saturday night. Spiritual care is enhanced by the services of a qualified pastoral carer whose work is integral to the holistic care of the residents.
The warm and inviting sitting rooms are the hub of each unit and close to the individual bedrooms to facilitate ease of access. Each room is tastefully decorated and residents are encouraged to personalise their own space to their liking.
Extensive Lifestyle and Leisure activities cater for all interests and physio activities form part of the identified individual care plan for each resident. Events such as Australia Day, Cup Day and Valentine's Day are celebrated in grand style by staff and residents who all join in the fun of the occasion.
