Located within the grounds of Woodlands Village is our residential aged care facility named Woodlands Lodge, which offers 24 hour care to 72 residents. Woodlands Lodge is a low-care facility.
The Lodge has several different styles of rooms all with external access and 17 rooms have balconies offering an additional area for relaxing and watching the world go by. We are thrilled to be able to offer residential accommodation and care to “couples” who wish to remain together – a unique unit which has a kitchenette, en-suite, and 2 individual rooms that can used as a sitting room & bedroom or two bedrooms.
We have a Dementia Specific Unit offering specialized care to residents.
We offer a wide selection of meals over a four week rotating menu and all meals are cooked daily on-site. We provide breakfast, lunch and tea – these are served in our two dining areas. Morning and afternoon tea are served daily in our main lounge/activity area.
There is a comprehensive program of social activities – including art and craft classes, entertainment from local school groups, musicians, dance groups, bus outings, movie afternoons, bingo, poetry readings, arm-chair travelling and many more. Something for everyone.
We are supported by our local clergy who provide a church service every Sunday on a rotating basis.
The public library supplies us with books (many in large print) and these are routinely changed every few months.
There is a hairdressing salon within Woodlands Lodge and our hairdresser comes two days a week every week.
Our wonderful band of volunteers compliment the work of our staff and assist in providing special care to our residents.
There is an easy walking grade pathway around Woodlands Lodge accessible for all residents to enjoy a leisurely stroll in the fresh air and enjoy the beautifully landscaped gardens.
