A modern, well appointed facility, Richmond Lodge is located in a quiet residential area of Casino and is only a short stroll to the central CBD area.
The Lodge is set among lovely lush gardens, with several communal lounge areas for residents and family to relax and chat. The recent addition of two new sun lounge rooms have been another welcome option, enabling residents to enjoy the surrounds but remain comfortable and protected from the outdoor elements.

We encourage residents to bring with them their personal effects to help create a sense of their own personal space. An integrated nurse call system operates throughout the facility and includes a motion sensitive falls monitor.

Specialist Dementia Specific Care
The East Wing at Richmond lodge provides secure facilities enhancing the delivery of specialist care to those residents living with dementia. UPA is continually accessing the latest education and programs for both residents and staff, with a focus on delivering the best practice care for residents.
A special feature of the East Wing, is the enhanced sensory experience from the beautiful interactive garden that wraps around the building. Residents are encouraged to participate in the garden to whatever extent they are inclined or able. Residents and family can engage with the friendly resident budgies who provide happy chatter in the garden.
We understand that the experience of caring for someone with dementia can be an incredibly isolating one and it is nice to know that as a carer you know that you are not alone. We provide a number of forums for family members of those with dementia which have proven very popular.
