Extended Care

The third interlinking building is Brenton Lodge, offering Extended Care. With a focus on excellent care, the correct nursing procedures are applied by qualified nursing staff who manage the nutrition, medication and general healthcare and mental well-being of the residents.

Whether due to dementia, disability or frailty, the nurses partner with Supported Care Residents to deliver unique and tailored attention. In instances where short-term or palliative care are required, the Brenthurst staff ensure that every remaining moment of the resident’s life is filled with friendship, camaraderie, excellent healthcare and as much activity as they can handle. 

Across the board, medical services are undergirded by the Nursing Sisters, including referrals to specialists like social workers, psychologists/psychiatrists, physiotherapists, hydrotherapy exercises, art therapy, music therapy, pastoral care, and special people like AA sponsors.
