Located within the grounds of Woodlands Village is our residential aged care facility named Woodlands Lodge. The Lodge accommodates 72 residents and is staffed 24 hours a day by qualified carers and registered nurses.
Woodlands Lodge has several different styles of rooms all with external access and 17 rooms have balconies offering an additional area for relaxing. We are very pleased to be able to offer residential accommodation and care to “couples” who wish to remain together – a unique unit which has a kitchenette, en-suite, and 2 individual rooms that can used as a sitting room and bedroom or two bedrooms.
A modern, light and airy memory support unit caters for 19 residents. The unit is secure and suitable for wandering residents.
