The new Specialist Memory Unit is the first of its kind in the region and is purpose built to provide care for those residents suffering from dementia (often referred to as Alzheimer's). This accommodation has been specifically designed and programmed for residents living with the effects of dementia and other issues related to cognitive function.
There are limited accommodations for specialised memory care across the country, yet the need for such highly specialised care continues to rise. Durham Green is one of the first retirement villages in the country to add this type of purpose built accommodation in an effort to better serve our residents.
The new centre will give residents a home-like setting with private accommodation, 24-hour care, and daily experiences designed to cater to their special needs. Whilst a state-of-the-art facility, this specialist Memory Care Lodge is designed so that is has a homey and non-clinical feel to it.
Currently the South West Sydney region only has a handful of Dementia care units and these are all highly clinical and usually located within a hospital. Through this new unit Tulich Family Communities will be able to better cater for a wide variety of memory related ailments.
There is simply no other unit like it in Sydney’s South West.
