Description
The Hilda Ross Retirement Village offers a purpose built, beautifully designed dementia unit within a secure environment.

The unit is open plan with a spacious and well appointed lounge and dining room. There is a secure roof garden that really needs to be visited to be believed. Most importantly every bedroom is single with ensuite. This ensures privacy and a place for each resident to call their own.

Care centre residents have access to beautiful spacious lounges, dining areas and serene outdoor spaces. Living areas are warm and inviting and provide the perfect setting to meet with family and friends to relax and enjoy.

The resort-style facilities can include a hair and beauty salon, café and shop. Our villages have beautifully landscaped gardens where you can enjoy peaceful strolls or have the space for the grandchildren to play.

For your peace of mind, we have 24-hour security to ensure your safety at all times.

Our staff are compassionate and well trained and really understand your loved one's condition. If you have any questions whatsoever or if you simply wish to visit to see this wonderful unit for yourself please ring Wendy Taylor.

Wendy will be very happy to meet with you, and introduce you to her clinical team and explain the many features of our unit should you wish.
