Description
"LOVE, EMPATHY AND RESPECT"

Dominion Home is a boutique family oriented dementia facility; whether you need long term, respite short term stays or day-care for your family member, we cater to the various needs of the individual.
All the care staff at Dominion Home are long term with a passion for people and skills within the Dementia field.
There’s laughter and lots of cheering when our activities therapist is working with our residents. Her warm personality and fun approach to the games and activities makes her very popular among both residents and family.
Our grounds are securely gated, and the grounds include a lovely garden walk around the perimeter of the property.
We strive to maintain as much family atmosphere, and socialisation for our residents. Pets come to visit regularly; organised group outings and shopping trips are all a part of helping to provide a sense of belonging. Personal touches like photos and memorabilia are encouraged in the residents’ rooms.
While we are not the place with all the bells and whistles, grand furnishings or multiple levels; we do provide a safe, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. You can be confident your loved one will be cared for as though they were our own family members.
Visitors are welcome to arrange a tour and consultation with our qualified team, who can answer your questions regarding your individual care needs.

Testimonials
I would like to express my gratitude for the care of my mum and to the kind carers who do such a wonderful job looking after mum.

I have also been really impressed with your activities coordinator. Nearly every time I come to see mum she is engaged in some wonderful activity. She appears happy and is smiling and laughing. She is talking and joking like I used to remember her. I am so grateful and it is so good to see mum engaged as opposed to just sitting alone in her room.

I have seen some really positive changes under the new management with the place looking tidier and the walls decorated with some lovely images.

It has also been good to see the manager and the registered nurse constantly around and obviously being very visible and involved in the residents and improving the Home.

Well done and thanks again. - Sandra
