Fig Tree Point comprises 80 beds allocated to low care hostel, high care nursing home, and Extra Services accommodations for both low care and high care residents.
The styling creates a rich, warm and comfortable atmosphere taking in spectacular views of Lake Macquarie. Residents can come together or visit with family and friends in one of the many lounge rooms and sitting areas, or relax on one of the large verandahs to admire the views. An elevator links the three floors of the building and there are no steps to negotiate.
Our low care hostel accommodations provide people who need some assistance with their daily living activities with their own private suite and ensuite bathroom, whilst our high care nursing home provides shared accommodation for people who need increased assistance with their daily living activities.
Our Extra Services accommodations provide for both low care and high care needs in a private suite with ensuite bathroom. This also includes additional hotel-type services such as a higher standard of accommodation, increased meal choices and additional lifestyle activities.
No matter what level of care our residents choose, the most important thing is that Fig Tree Point feels like home. We encourage residents to decorate their room with personal items to create a feeling of home. Paintings, photos and ornaments are all welcome, and depending on the room type and space available, larger pieces of furniture may be permitted. It is important that all personal items brought into the facility must meet Work Health and Safety Standards, so please discuss the suitability of certain items with our Admissions Officer.
Residents can be assured that they are safe and secure at Fig Tree Point. Our security camera system, installed in all communal areas and corridors, enables us to monitor activities throughout the facility to help ensure residents’ safety and security 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.
All accommodations are appointed with equipment to aid people who are physically challenged and all flooring is non-slip. Emergency call buttons, installed to residents’ bedrooms and 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.
