Families and carers of people with dementia can enjoy peace of mind knowing that we are committed to improving the quality of life for people with dementia.
Physical, social and mental well-being are our main priorities. We offer the highest quality of dementia care Melbourne has on offer.
Our home-like dementia living area is a safe and calm 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 resident’s quality of life.
Our dedicated dementia care unit features a greater ratio of highly trained staff to resident, meaning greater clinical care and highly individualised attention for each resident. There’s a reason why our dementia living unit overwhelmingly gets the tick of approval from families.
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.
We offer 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.
Allied health services
Our allied health professionals provide crucial support to our residents by attending to their physical and mental health. Our residents have access to group exercise classes held by one of our physiotherapists as well as develop a treatment plan to treat and work with our residents to prevent disease and disability through movement and exercise.
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.
Enriched living program
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.
