Rooms

Rooms are thoroughly cleaned by our staff at least once a week, with bathrooms and bins cleaned daily. Staff will ensure your room has adequate supplies of toilet paper, if you require more we can arrange for a top-up. Built-in wardrobes and kitchen cupboards are cleaned bi-annually. Family and friends are welcome to assist with reviewing contents of these cupboards and wardrobes outside of this schedule.

Meals

At Twilight Aged Care we understand the importance of nutrition and diet to your lifestyle and wellbeing. We aim to provide quality food and cater for all personal, cultural and dietary needs. Each of our homes has a four-week rotating seasonal menu which is designed in consultation with you and a qualified dietitian. This is regularly reviewed and tailored to your requirements. You have a selection of meals to choose from for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A member of staff is available to give advice on diet and nutrition.

Laundry and Linen Service

Laundering of clothing and linen will be taken care of by our staff; dry cleaning of special/delicate items can be arranged at an additional cost. Staff change all linen at least weekly on a roster basis. If linen changes are required between scheduled days, one of our Personal Care Assistants will attend to this. Please note, we use heavy duty laundry products so if you are sensitive or allergic please notify us. Please contact us if you would like any further information on (02) 9414 4400 or email: info@twilight.org.au

Activity and Lifestyle Program

Each Twilight Aged Care home has an Activity and Lifestyle Program which is responsive and tailored to individual needs and interests. The program aims to contribute to holistic care and help support physical, emotional and mental wellbeing, as well as enhance cognitive skills. We also offer regular outings and excursions at all of our homes.

Activities available across our homes may include, but are not limited to:

  • Tai Chi
  • Zumba
  • quizzes
  • concerts
  • word games
  • sing-a-longs
  • music and art therapy
  • dance class
  • gentle exercise
  • board and card games
  • bingo
  • birthday and National Day festivities
  • craft sessions
  • weekly bus trips and excursions
  • personalised one to one visits

 

A schedule of weekly activities is clearly signposted throughout our homes to ensure residents and their families are aware of what’s on each day.

We actively encourage participation in our Activity and Lifestyle Program as it can provide considerable benefits, including opportunities to meet new people and develop new interests. However we respect residents’ wishes if they prefer not to participate in group activities.
