At Amaroo, we are proud to provide homely accommodation appropriate to each level of care in an environment that is bright, warm and friendly.
Amaroo comprises 95 beds in four wings over two levels. An elevator links the upper and lower floors and there are no steps to negotiate. All rooms are appointed with equipment to aid people who are physically challenged and all flooring is non-slip.
Just over half of the accommodation at Amaroo is dedicated to high care services, providing for people who need increased assistance with their daily living activities in shared rooms. The remaining beds are dedicated Extra Services accommodations, providing for both low care and high care needs in a private room with ensuite bathroom.
Our residents can be assured that their home is safe and secure, with a security camera system installed in all communal areas and corridors enabling us to monitor activities throughout the facility 24 hours a day. A locked keypad system is installed to all entry and exit doors to the building and a contracted security company performs nightly patrols around the grounds.
Emergency call buttons installed to residents’ bedrooms, bathrooms and throughout the communal areas of the facility alert nursing staff around the clock in the case of an emergency. We can also supply a Vital Call personal emergency alert pendant for residents to keep on their person.
No matter what level of care our residents choose, the most important thing is that Amaroo feels like home. We encourage residents to decorate their room with personal items to create the feeling of home. Depending on the room type and space available, larger pieces of furniture may be permitted. All personal items brought into the facility must meet Work Health and Safety Standards, so please discuss the suitability of any items you would like to bring with our Admissions Officer.
