Delete- Residents and Visitors
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.
Our teams complete specialist dementia training, equipping them with strategies to enhance quality of life. This training teaches them to put the resident first. We refer to this as person-centred care and it ensures that the resident is treated as an individual.
