Aged Care and Dementia
HammondCare has a particular commitment to dementia care and research, and, since the 1990s, has worked to become a leading organisation in community and residential services, particularly seeking to support Australians with a diagnosis of dementia.
HammondCare provides Supportive and Palliative Care services at Braeside Hospital (Fairfield), Greenwich Hospital (North Sydney), Neringah Hospital (Wahroonga) and the Northern Beaches Palliative Care Service (Mona Vale). Services vary across facilities and include inpatient units, day hospitals, outpatient clinics and after-hours telephone advice.
HammondCare provides both inpatient and outpatient programs for patients who are experiencing a wide range of disabilities requiring rehabilitation support.
Older Person's Mental Health
Greenwich and Braeside Hospitals provide inpatient and outpatient services for older people with mental health problems, which include dementia with severe behavioural disturbances or other mental health issues. These services also provide support for the carers of our patients and offer follow up once patients return to their own communities.
Younger Onset Dementia
HammondCare recognises the importance of providing services that support the special needs of younger Australians (under the age of 65 years) who are diagnosed with dementia. We currently offer a residential and a residential respite service which operate on a unique model of care which supports the independence and autonomy of younger people who are diagnosed with dementia.
