Our Services

Macquarie Aged Care Centre offers 24-hour permanent and short term (respite) caredementia (memory support) and palliative care. 

Residents trust that they are in good hands with our care team of fully qualified and committed individuals who share The Salvation Army values of integrity, compassion, respect, diversity and collaboration.

Each staff member has undergone reference and security checks to ensure they are fully qualified, experienced and are passionate about working in the aged care sector. Emotional intelligence and sensitivity to diversity are other key factors in recruiting our people.

Our approach to dementia care is led by each resident’s interests, feelings and emotions. We respect the rich lives they have led by tailoring our care based on their personal history in a dedicated dementia-friendly environment. 

Environment can have a big impact on the quality of life. Our William wing is specifically designed to meet the needs of residents with severe behavourial and phsycological symptoms of dementia.

Meals are cooked daily onsite by a qualified chef in consultation with the dietician. The menu is rotated regularly to promote choice and take advantage of what is in season. Each meal has a selection of high protein, vegetarian and modified options. We also cater for special dietary and cultural requirements. 

We take fun quite seriously! The Centre has a dedicated Lifestyle Team that organises daily activities based on the suggestions of residents, including outings, celebrations, trivia, cultural dancing, singing, walks, games, Chapel services and much more.

Dementia wing has it's own activity calendar that can be group based or a one-on-one with care staff, depending on resident needs and preferences. 

Scheduled visits from the local GP and other Allied Health services as needed, including podiatrist, speech therapist, occupational therapist and dentist.

Daily physiotherapy is available for permanent residents. 

We have a holistic model of care. The Centre Chaplains play an important role in bringing this to life. Whatever your beliefs, our Chaplains are here to assist in your spiritual and emotional journey, if you wish - because we don't have clients, only family.

Life in Our Centre

Macquarie Lodge Aged Care Centre offers a wide range of single and twin rooms with sunny, external views.  All our rooms have a 24-hour emergency call system for added peace of mind.

Residents can get pampered in the hair dressing salon or enjoy some quiet time in the chapel.  The green thumbs can help out in the gardens while for the social butterflies we have regular bus tours and community projects with local schools and volunteer groups. Interactive games and fitness activities carefully planned and organised by our Recreational and Care teams are part and parcel of our daily routine.

Our staff and chaplains go beyond the clinical to cater for the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of our residents. We also recognise the importance of family and friends and encourage them to be an active part of our community.
