Welcome to McDougall Park

“We look forward to welcoming you to McDougall Park where you will become part of our home and our family.”

McDougall Park is located in the peaceful suburb of Como, just across the road from the stunning Neil McDougall Park. It is a friendly, family-orientated home with a welcoming atmosphere.

  • Our approach to care Read more

    For your peace of mind, we provide 24-hour care by registered nurses who are supported by a dedicated team of enrolled nurses and personal carers. We have the expertise to assist with complex care requirements, and will always discuss your care with you and your family.

    In recognition of our very high standards of care and services, McDougall Park has been fully accredited by the Australian Government meeting all 44 of the expected outcomes.

     

  • Lifestyle and activities Read more

    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.

    From games of bingo to bus trips and happy hour, there’s always plenty to do at McDougall Park. Friends and family are more than welcome to join in 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.

  • Food and nutrition Read more

    Enjoying a variety of delicious, nutritionally balanced meals is an important part of maintaining good health. From our central kitchen, our executive chef, sous chef and dietician create menus that provide variety and maximum nutritional value without compromising on taste. 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.

    You can view some of our menu options by reading our What's on the menu? flyer.
