Welcome to HammondCare Darlinghurst

With 85 years’ experience in providing expert dementia care, palliative care and frail aged care, HammondCare is regarded as one of Australia’s most innovative health and aged care providers.

HammondCare Darlinghurst offers unparalleled residential care for older people who are experiencing homelessness, or at risk of homelessness, with complex care needs. The care home will open in March 2020.

What does HammondCare Darlinghurst offer?

The warmth of home: We strive to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere with all the comforts of home. This includes apartments with their own dining and lounge, and outdoor areas with accessible courtyards, gardens and balconies.

More staff per resident: Our staffing levels are higher than industry levels, with a high representation of registered nurses.

Engagement with life: We encourage residents to take part in everyday activities which provides a sense of purpose and feeling involved. This includes a variety of social and recreational opportunities, including gardening and music therapy.

A fresh food culture: High quality, varied, and delicious food is essential to everyone’s physical and emotional health. That’s why we ensure all meals are freshly cooked on-site and we spend significantly more on each meal than industry average.
