Delicious, chef-cooked meals
Meal times are not just about food, it is a true dining experience which many of our residents and families look forward to. It’s that feeling of sitting around the dining room table and catching up with friends, eating scrumptious meals and then sitting back and relaxing. Donwood is proud to have our qualified team of chefs who cook to please and ensure our residents are smiling while eating. Our chefs pride themselves in ensuring the dietary requirements for each resident are individually met. Presentation, quality and variety are key to a healthy appetite no matter what your dietary requirement is. View or download a sample menu here.
Onsite café & playground for visitors
The Donwood Café is a beautiful place for residents and their guests to enjoy time together. You’ll be able to sit down with friends and family to enjoy a coffee and a bite to eat in a comfortable environment. With an onsite playground nearby, your younger guests will be able to run around and play whilst you’re catching up with everyone.
Our residents are all treated with respect and dignity. We will maintain their identity and ensure they can make informed choices to live the life they choose. We ensure we understand not only our resident but also their family and friends and their connections with the greater community. It is important to ensure our connections are maintained, nurtured and remain strong no matter the decline in our health.
Donwood has an onsite hairdresser and beautician to ensure our residents can keep up their appearance with ease, in a beautiful welcoming environment.
Our dedicated lifestyle and wellness co-ordinators organise activities based on the suggestions of residents, including outings (made easy with our Donwood community bus), celebrations, concerts, dancing, traditional games, happy hour, Chapel Services, and much more. These activities are co-ordinated with input from our residents, relatives and community to ensure we offer something for everyone to enjoy individually or together.
At Donwood we have so many external connections with entertainers, local community groups, local preschools, primary and secondary school and volunteer organisations. These relationships allow us to connect to our external community and promote self worth, belonging, friendship and a sense of purpose.
