HammondCare Erina is a residential care home specialising in dementia care, made up of small domestic cottages built for independence and familiarity.
A unique model of care
We believe that the best place for people with dementia to be is home. When this is no longer possible, then our commitment is to provide an environment that looks, feels and operates like a home.
Research shows people living with dementia are most comfortable in small, domestic environments. Our cottages are designed to feel as little like an institution as possible, and give residents an opportunity to engage with the rhythms and routines of normal home life.
Residents are encouraged to live and operate in the cottage as they would in a home; the resident is free to spend time in any of the common areas, and the buildings are designed so each choice is a ‘right’ one. This means there are no dead-ends and any locked doors are unobtrusive. There are many visual ‘cues’ about where one is, and where one is heading. To minimise confusion, the central kitchen and living areas are always visible from corridors or other spaces.
HammondCare Erina has been designed using internationally recognised principles to promote choice, minimise confusion and maximise independence for people living with dementia.
