Lifestyle


Services

Adina Care offers a fantastic lifestyle for its residents, with all programs and services focused on the needs and choices of each individual.

We have several lifestyle programs in place to ensure residents make the most of their time living at our home. We believe that social interaction and involvement with others, both within and outside the home is vital to residents’ wellbeing. For this reason, there are organised activities each day that include art, bingo, cards, and special performances from outside groups.

Outdoor activities are organised regularly to make the most of pleasant weather with trips to the local shops, hairdressing salon and other points of interest. Church services for all denominations are conducted frequently, and residents are welcome to attend any service they wish.

Adina Care is proud of its dining and meal service with all meals cooked and prepared onsite by our own team of catering staff. This allows us to tailor meals according to the specific needs of our residents, including special dietary requirements or preferences.

Our menus are reviewed regularly and residents provide consistent feedback on their preferences via the monthly resident meetings. Wherever possible, produce is sourced locally or from local suppliers to ensure the highest quality, fresh ingredients and support of our local farming community.

“It is always a difficult decision to move one’s beloved mother into care.

I was so very sad when three months ago, the time came for my 100 year old mother to leave our home and move into Adina Care. However this has been one of the best decisions that both Mum and our family have made. I can now become once again enjoy being a daughter, not a carer and that is lovely.

Mum is very happy and content in her beautiful room and she really loves the interaction and activities. Bingo is her favourite! Lydia, the diversional therapist does an amazing job.

I will never forget the day when Mum first arrived into Adina Care and a staff member said to me ‘We are a team, because you know your mother better than anyone’. That immediately put me at ease, knowing that I would be listened to and my input would be valued.

The care and kindness all the staff show to both Mum and myself is wonderful, nothing is too much trouble and I always feel welcome when I visit.

It is so lovely to greeted by Dianne on reception, Tony made the paperwork stress free, and Jenny and Aileen’s doors are always open. All the staff, including the cleaners, laundry, handyman, kitchen and nursing staff are so very kind and professional to my mother.

We could not be happier with the care Mum is receiving at Adina Care and we truly thank you all.”
