Ageing in place

This is your home.  You don’t have to move, even if your care needs change.   This is genuine ageing in place.  We adjust our care and services to meet your unique needs.   

Your community is our community

Located in the heart of Woodford, our nursing home has been designed with the community in mind. We are privileged to offer local people the care they need close to home; and to employ local people in our team.

Embracia plays an active role in community life through events and contribution to local programs. 

The home is filled with specially commissioned photographs of the local area, bringing the community spirit in to the home through stunning works of art.  Many people comment on the little details and landmarks they recognise from where they have spent their lives.  Each resident has a unique story to share about the community they love.

Dementia-Friendly Care

A leading dementia care provider, Embracia in Woodford has a unique approach that connects families and older people.  We use the Montessori method of dementia care, an innovative method that focuses on what people can do, rather than what they can’t. 

Our Jinibara household is a dedicated to dementia-friendly aged care, with specially-trained staff permanently working in that community.   The outcome is a person who has purpose and fulfilment, as well as the care they need.

Respite care – peace of mind for carers who need a break

We offer respite care for both planned breaks, and unforeseen situations where respite is more urgently needed.

Palliative care

Our quality palliative care is overseen by our Nursing team and is centred on respecting the resident, their wishes, and ensuring their individual needs and dignity remain the focus throughout.  Our staff provide compassionate and caring support to loved ones at a challenging time.

Lifestyle

Fun is passion.  Life is to be enjoyed.

Our Lifestyle program is varied and ever-changing, so our residents always have opportunities to participate in activities that interest them and be part of life in the home.

We have a dedicated Lifestyle team who lead a program of group and individual activities.  We have our own wheelchair-accessible bus and take regular trips out and about, with the RSL and local shops frequently visited by our residents.  We also take trips further afield, playing tourist at local attractions or attending special events within the community. 

We also focus on participation in every-day life within the home.  Residents are invited to help with daily tasks and activities around the home so they can make a meaningful contribution to their household.
