Dementia design that enables independence

Dementia design that enables independence

We offer a range of services for older people who require low, high or dementia-specific care.

Unlike many large dementia care facilities our homes are built as domestic cottages, each housing a small number of residents.

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.
