Medical and nursing
Your wellbeing is our ultimate measure of success.
The care we offer addresses your physical and mental health, happiness, comfort and contentment. Whether in our groundbreaking dementia care unit, daily healthcare requirements or specialist treatment, our medical care is delivered 24 hours a day by our highly trained, dedicated and professional nurses and personal carers working as a team in full collaboration with our expert clinical care coordinator.
At Fairway, medical management is overseen by your GP in collaboration with nursing staff – your team. Your team will consult with you and your family and supporters to create an individual health care plan, which is regularly monitored and communicated, giving you peace of mind at all times. Our allied health team and staff are trained to monitor mobility and pain prevention.
Your health and wellbeing
is our highest priority
We will always listen to your wishes and your concerns about your health.
We will work together with you to build a trusting relationship, and because we know each other so well we’re highly clinically alert to any changes or deterioration in your health.
In the case of acute illness we will call on Alfred Hospital’s Mobile Assessment and Treatment Service, a doctor and nurse team that can treat you in your own room at Fairway. They will of course consult your regular GP and follow up accordingly. There is also the peace of mind of Sandringham Hospital next door, if the situation requires.
All residents have health issues, either physical, cognitive or a combination of both.
Clinical issues are of vital concern and all residents are closely monitored. The resident’s GP oversees all medical orders in collaboration with nursing staff. Direct care is provided by nurses and personal carers over the 24 hour continuum. Medications, wound care, observations, treatments and nursing interventions are managed with expertise and confidence.
The difference between existing and truly living is the attention paid to the social, spiritual, emotional and intellectual needs of people.
Loneliness and isolation are banished once entering Fairway, with a huge range of social and creative interests to become involved in. Choice is the thing and there are outlets for all personality types from those who enjoy reading and passive interests through to those who relish outings on the bus or “Cycling Without Age” by the beach.
Fairway’s Day Program offers a unique experience of fun and stimulation with great food and amenities overseen by fully qualified staff.
Many ageing folk in the community lose confidence and their old “zing” as social experiences can become much more difficult to enjoy with decreased mobility and so many family members overrun with time-consuming obligations of work and children.
The daily services at Fairway are of the highest possible standard, but sometimes you need a little more. For an extra charge, we can offer ‘enriched living’ experiences that include additional wining and dining options and extra lifestyle programs.
We approach the transition to palliative care with sensitivity, treating you with dignity and respect at all times.
The palliative care journey is most successful when embarked upon with full trust and excellent communication. We will listen to your wishes and include your family and supporters at every opportunity.
Innovative Dementia Living
Our home-like dementia living area is a safe, calm and secure space, set within beautiful surroundings. It’s a place full of life and optimism, where music and art therapy allow residents to express themselves and activities and entertainment are thoughtfully considered and contribute to the residents’ quality of life. A recreated 1950s kitchen offers a unique kind of reminiscence therapy for residents, transporting them often to some of their happiest moments.
