Caroline Chisholm is a two-storey federation building set in extensive landscaped grounds in Lane Cove. The home is surrounded by beautiful gardens and wide verandas where our residents enjoy spending time with their loved ones.
At Caroline Chisholm we pride ourselves on the excellent care services that we provide to every resident. Our care team is made up of a Director of Nursing, registered nurses, personal care staff, lifestyle officers and other support staff who work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure you are well cared for.
We provide palliative care, respite care and dementia support and are more than happy to answer any questions you may have about your care requirements.
In recognition of our very high standards of care and services, Caroline Chisholm has been fully accredited by the Australian Government meeting all 42 of the expected outcomes.
Staying active and socialising is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Our activity program changes each month, but will always include bus trips and outings, arts and crafts, movie days and theme days. We have a number of volunteers supporting our home and have regular musical performances, fetes, raffles and visits from school groups.
Alloa is situated close to beautiful rivers and bays, which provide ideal opportunities for outings. Friends and family are more than welcome to join in with any of our activities.
Your room will be furnished for you, but we encourage you to bring personal belongings such as photographs and soft furnishings to help you feel at home. There are television sets that you can watch in our common rooms, but you are welcome to bring you own television or radio if you wish.
Enjoying a variety of delicious, nutritionally balanced meals is an important part of maintaining good health. Our cook prepares a wide variety of nutritious, home-cooked meals in our kitchen on site. We offer choices of hot and cold meals, cater for allergies, intolerances and culturally-specific needs, and create a special menu for a theme day each month.
