Memory Support Service

Peacock Unit

This area provides accommodation and memory support for people living with dementia who can no longer live safely at home and require a secure environment to prevent wandering. Inside the keypad entry, the Unit is open and people can move freely about. There is a beautiful sensory garden courtyard and a back garden. All of the rooms are single rooms with en-suite.

This is a small community, with a maximum of eighteen residents. This helps reduce stress and gives staff more opportunity to engage with residents in a therapeutic manner. Memory support is provided with short activities and interactions, and residents have access to activities, both specifically designed for people living with dementia, and mainstream. Staff receive training and support in minimising the impact of behaviours on others.

Persons holding a current dementia specific My Aged Care Support Plan may apply for this type of care.

Applications are taken throughout the year and waiting lists are kept in accordance with legislation.
