Ritcher Lodge is a purpose-built, fully accessible residential aged care facility comprising 45 single rooms with en suite bathrooms allowing ageing in place, within a friendly and home-like environment. The Lodge was extensively renovated in 2008.
Ritcher Lodge specialises in care for people who need some help, but do not have complex, ongoing care needs. The type of care includes:
- Accommodation-related services — furnishings, bedding, laundry, some toiletries, cleaning services, all meals, maintenance of buildings and grounds, and the provision of on-call staff to provide assistance.
- Personal care services — assistance with the activities of daily living, such as bathing, toileting, meals, dressing, mobility, maintaining continence or managing incontinence, rehabilitation support, and assistance in obtaining health and therapy services.
- Lifestyle services: the Lodge provides a wide range of activities as part of a lifestyle programme and encourages interaction with other residents and the wider community.
