HammondCare Miranda is a residential care home specialising in dementia care, made up of small domestic cottages built for independence and familiarity.

An environment that looks, feels and operates like a home

We believe that the best place for people with dementia to be is home. When this is no longer possible, then our commitment is to provide an environment that looks, feels and operates like a home.

Research shows people living with dementia are most comfortable in small, domestic environments. Our cottages are designed to feel as little like an institution as possible, and give residents an opportunity to engage with the rhythms and routines of a normal home life.

Residents are encouraged to live and operate in the cottage as they would in their home; the resident is free to spend time in any of the common areas, and the buildings are designed so each choice is a ‘right’ one. This means there are no dead-ends and any locked doors are unobtrusive. There are many visual ‘cues’ about where one is, and where one is heading. To minimise confusion, the central kitchen and living areas are always visible from corridors or other spaces.

HammondCare Miranda has been designed using internationally recognised principles to promote choice, minimise confusion and maximise independence for people living with dementia.

Quality food served in home-cooked meals

HammondCare is committed to an excellent food culture, with all food served fresh and prepared by residents and staff in our kitchens. Food preparation and planning is overseen by our Executive Chef and nutritionists, who ensure all the residents’ nutritional needs and tastes are catered to, and that varied, fresh and delicious food is available every day.

The model of having a domestic kitchen at the very centre of our cottages strongly influences the food culture at HammondCare’s aged care homes. Our meals are home-cooked and fresh – we strive to make HammondCare Miranda feel as much like a home as possible.
