The aged care facility consists of 70 modern rooms for those requiring assisted living. Adjoining this is the Palmer Wing, which includes 14 individual rooms with ensuite bathrooms that are specifically designed to meet the needs of people with symptoms of dementia.
The Aged Care facility is managed by the Clinical Care Manager.
The facility also has a team of skilled allied health professionals and experienced Activities staff involved in coordinating the activities and lifestyle aspects of our residential care. Medical Practitioners, pharmacists, podiatrists, dental and an optometrist visit on a regular basis.
A group of local General Practitioners (G.P’s) with an active interest in aged care, conduct a weekly medical clinic on-site at Dougherty and this clinic is available for all residents, both residential care and self care. Appointments for this clinic can be made at the office on level 1 reception.
