Our Care Services

We are proud to be able to provide a high standard of full time nursing care with 24 hour RN coverage. Our concept of care at Algester Lodge is that personal needs are met in harmony with specialised medical attention.

Our Extensive Care Services include

High Care

Low Care

Special Care

Bariatric Care

Respite Care

Additional Professional Care

In addition to 24 hour nursing care we offer other allied health professionals such as podiatrists, physiotherapists, dieticians and pathologists. Hairdressing services are offered at very reasonable rates.

Residents are also able to continue to use the family doctor or a doctor can be chosen from a list of General Practitioners who visit the facility on a regular basis. Referrals to specialists are organised when necessary and a mobile dental clinic visits us regularly.

Respite Care

Caring for a partner, relative or friend is a rewarding experience. At times it can become overwhelming and the carer needs a rest, residential respite care could be the answer. Carers need to have breaks from their role and those breaks are known as respite and this may help relieve stress for the carer and the person receiving care.

Special Care Unit

Our Algester Lodge facility has a wonderful Special Care unit, dedicated to our dementia residents. This special care unit has 41 beds as well as a beautiful and secure sensory garden.


Commercial Services

We have 2 hairdressing salons operated by qualified personnel. For information on opening times, please contact us.

We also have vending machines on-site selling drinks and snacks, open 24 hours.
