The best care in friendly and familiar surroundings.
All Oryx homes are designed to support individuals with varying degrees of memory loss.
Dementia is not one single disease. It is the term used to describe the symptoms of a large group of illnesses which cause a progressive decline in a person’s functioning. It is not a normal part of ageing, and everyone experiences dementia differently – symptoms will depend on the cause of dementia and the parts of the brain affected.
Our considered design, that encapsulates a small household within a larger home, safeguards residents from potentially difficult experiences, like having to navigate long corridors or large dining rooms.
In an Oryx home, they will always have a safe place to retire to when needed. In their smaller, close-knit supportive group of just 10 to 14 residents, it’s easier for them to know their neighbours and feel safe within their home.
All our nursing and care staff are qualified in aged care and are experienced in supporting residents living with dementia. Together, our team provide structure and routine activities to create a stress-free lifestyle and give residents living with memory loss and additional care needs a sense of satisfaction and enjoyment in their life.
All our residents are invited to enjoy the benefits of our monthly lifestyle calendar of programs and events, which are varied and include different activities to aide mental and physical stimulation.
