HammondCare Wahroonga is a residential care home specialising in dementia care, provided in a four-level care home with 24 hour dementia-specific care.

We’re a home, not a facility

HammondCare Wahroonga has been designed using internationally recognised best practice principles, to promote choice, minimise confusion and maximise independence for residents with dementia. Research shows people living with dementia are most comfortable in small, familiar environments, which is why our care home is comprised of six individual apartments.

Our vision is to enable people to have choice. We believe each person should have every opportunity to live as independently as possible, function at their greatest potential, and enjoy life as they want to. We recognise the importance of both physical and social environments for promoting independence, dignity, and feelings of comfort, safety and security.

We actively encourage family and friends to be our partners in care. We want to create an experience based on truly knowing and understanding the person we are caring for. Relatives and friends are encouraged to assist residents in decorating their rooms with familiar photos, furniture and memorabilia to become homely and comfortable. Residents’ memories are precious possessions, and care is taken to help them remember their lives so that their self-esteem and identity are maintained.

HammondCare Wahroonga apartments

HammondCare Wahroonga is a brand new, dementia specific, four-level care home. It comprises of six private apartments, each providing home for between 9 and 12 residents. All apartments are designed around a unique model of personal, individual care, and staffed by specialist dementia carers and advisers.

Accommodation features premium level finishes and fittings, individual rooms and ensuites, landscaped gardens and terraces, and 24 hour dementia-specific care.

We believe that the best place for people with dementia to be is at home. When this is no longer possible, then our commitment is to provide an environment that looks, feels and operates like a home. This gives residents the opportunity to make their own choices, engage in life through activities they enjoy, find satisfying, and allow them to derive dignity and self-respect.

The various common areas of the apartments include the following spaces:

  • A fully functioning domestic kitchen
  • An open plan lounge and dining area
  • Sunrooms containing lounge chairs and small tables, providing a common space that also allows a degree of privacy
  • A TV room with a variety of lounge chairs, a coffee table, a TV with a DVD player, along with a stereo system
  • A backyard containing barbecues, small pergolas, benches and tables, raised garden beds and washing lines - all back yards are secure, and looping garden paths link the outdoors with the indoors, minimising confusion for residents
  • Terrace balconies with extensive community views
  • A domestic laundry
  • A hair salon
  • A supermarket

HammondCare Residential Care & COVID-19

HammondCare puts residents' health and well-being first. As we learn to live with the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to follow the directives and guidelines of the Australian and the State Governments.

In addition to ongoing infection prevention and control measures, several additional steps have been taken to mitigate the risks and impact of COVID-19. HammondCare’s Pandemic Plan includes state-specific Visitor Guidelines, which are updated regularly, targeted staff training; procurement of necessary resources; additional cleaning practices; liaison with government and peak bodies; and regular communication updates to all relevant stakeholders.

Also, to allow visits to continue during the height of the pandemic and when outbreaks occur, HammondCare created the Partnering in Care Program. The special infection control program for residential care home visitors makes it possible for people to keep seeing their loved one, as we understand how much visits mean.

The program is designed to help visitors continue their care home visits to manage risk in an intelligent and measured way in each home. Available to all HammondCare resident’s loved ones, the program helps inform and educate people on topics that can help minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
