What does HammondCare Waratah offer?
The warmth of home: All 17 cottages at Waratah provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere with the comforts of home. They each have their own single ensuite rooms, dining and sitting areas for residents to use any time of day and night. A newly built two-level care home incorporates a host of modern technologies and premium level finishes designed to make life more comfortable for those who are frail aged.
Engagement with life: We encourage residents to take part in everyday activities which provides a sense of purpose and feeling involved. We also offer residents a variety of social and recreational opportunities, with an on-site chapel, hair salon, garden, gym and community centre.
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.
Comprehensive support: At HammondCare, we aim to provide comprehensive support for each resident, their family, and carers, to help embrace physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs. We value understanding your wishes for care in the future and can provide information for you about how to communicate those wishes to your care team.
