Dementia Specific Care

Anthem’s dementia specific care 14 bedroom home, “Retford” is a unique place. Care staff worked together with the construction team to create a building that offered the best practice for dementia care.  Lengthy research and years of visiting aged-care centres around the world resulted in some of the most innovative design and up-to-date fittings for dementia residents.

Daily life in “Retford” is full of purpose and meaning, with large outdoor areas with lawn and patio, gardening, and animals to look after. There is a large dining area, a lounge room and second more private lounge room as well. At the end of each corridor there are sitting areas facing North with the sun streaming in. Some residents help the staff make scones for morning tea. They go for walks each day. The residents are encouraged to do their own washing and hang it on the clothes line.

Our exceptional care and nursing team has been specifically chosen to complement the environment we’ve created in “Retford”, and the underlying care philosophies that make it such a special place to live.
