Parry Care Centre, Lesmurdie
Parry Care Centre is an excellent choice for those wanting to be close to the bush. The centre is located in the Perth Hills close to nature reserves and parklands, and has a real ‘country’ feel.
All residents enjoy their own lounge room, separate bedroom with private ensuite, and outlooks over pretty gardens from their private balcony or outdoor sitting area. The spacious feel is enhanced by lots of natural light and a high gabled ceiling in the lounge area.
Outside, there is lots of space to walk, relax and enjoy family get-togethers, with a large covered patio, gazebo and barbecue area.
For indoor gatherings, the centre has a large, airy lounge and a dining room for meals and refreshments. A varied social calendar includes weekly shopping outings, craft activities, quizzes and board games in the Raffles Lounge, and exercise classes.
Residents can enjoy quieter moments in the library or a number of small sitting areas in nooks around the centre.
Parry Care Centre has a secure dementia-specific wing.
Our dementia services have grown from more than 50 years of experience and draw on international best practice. Helping people with dementia to remain as independent as they want to be is a vital part of what we do. With the help of family and our own observation, we work out what each person’s individual social, spiritual and emotional needs are, so that we can take a holistic approach to their care.
In addition, we provide support to family and other informal carers, who are often highly stressed and coping alone in supporting the person living with dementia at home.
The best way to find the right service or package to suit your circumstances is to call us. We’re here to guide you as to the best options for you. Contact us on 1300 26 26 26.
The person I care for is living with dementia. Are there services that support us both prior to permanent residential care?
McCusker Nurse Service: This is a free service for the carers of those living with dementia. It gives you the best chance of finding your way through the maze of resources and support available to you.
Respite care: Often people with dementia benefit from short-term respite care, either by coming along to one of our clubs or with a short stay in a residential care centre. This is an opportunity for you to have a much-needed break.
Seven of our residential centres offer care tailored for people living with dementia: explore the map to find the centre nearest you.
Depending on your needs and preferences, you may be eligible for Government-subsidised home care or day respite services. We can help you find out what services are available to you and ensure you receive the best care package.
To find out if you are eligible for permanent or respite care in a residential care centre, you must be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). Contact your GP to arrange an assessment.
