HammondCare's dementia care village at the Repat Health Precinct, in Daw Park, S.A. has been designed to provide exceptional care for individuals living with dementia.
The 70-place village consists of six bungalow-style cottages surrounding a Central Park and Plaza. Each cottage includes a domestic kitchen and laundry where residents are able to participate in meaningful daily tasks. There is a mix of spacious communal living areas and private sitting spaces designed to create a sense of community and offers residents a warm and welcoming environment. The Central Park and Plaza serves as a communal space where residents can socialise, interact, and enjoy outdoor activities. The village also features a dementia-friendly store, developed in collaboration with Coles Group. This unique store allows residents to independently shop for their own groceries. Additional amenities such as a café, playground, hairdresser, and exercise park promote a sense of community enhancing the residents' quality of life and well-being.
