Selwyn Park

Selwyn Park dementia care


The dementia care unit is fresh and welcoming. Charming paintings decorate the walls throughout, and the unit opens to a fully-fenced outdoor area for residents to walk amongst the trees. Visitors are welcome at any time and can join residents for lunch or dinner, or take loved ones for a walk or outing. 

Each resident has their own single room and each is encouraged to decorate the room with pictures, personal items, TV and radio. Familiarity of surroundings is important to residents. The environment is safe and secure, and there are comfortable lounges to enjoy and activities to undertake.
