Nursing in Garrawarra Centre

Garrawarra Centre is an accredited Residential Aged Care Facility and has a capacity of 120 Dementia Specific beds. 
Located in Waterfall, approximately 43 kilometres south of Sydney and 44 kilometres north of Wollongong, in a natural bush setting, the Centre is one of the few purpose-built, dementia specific facilities in New South Wales.

Person Centred high level care is provided for people with a primary diagnosis of Dementia who exhibit challenging behaviours and cannot be accommodated in a main stream nursing home, and require a safe and secure environment. Residents may remain with us on either a permanent or respite basis.

Why work with us?

Garrawarra will appeal to nurses who have a particular interest in working within the complex specialty of Dementia and who are committed to person centred care.

Within a multidisciplinary team framework, nurses specialise in the safety, management and care of our residents in the end stages of this disease and work closely with the residents' families and friends to ensure the highest possible quality of life. 

The unique working environment successfully combines contemporary clinical practice with a family-friendly approach to care. 

The teams of skilled and dedicated enrolled and registered nurses, and assistants in nursing, work together in a spirit of support and cohesiveness. This positive work culture contributes greatly to the environment of the Centre.
