Myrtle Cottage Group is a community based organisation, providing activities and respite care for people with dementia. Located in Ingleburn, South Western Sydney NSW and servicing the Macarthur region.
Designed to provide activities for people who have Dementia and to give their carers quality periods of respite. The program operates Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from our Ingleburn premises for people living in the Campbelltown Local Government Area.
This program operates in Camden area on Wednesday and Thursday for people living in the Camden and Wollondilly Local Government Area.
There are three outings on each six-weekly program. Outings include visits to local and regional places of interest, appropriate for persons with dementia. The days rotate covering all the dementia programs,
Our staff and volunteers are well trained in dealing with people who have Dementia and can provide further advice and information if required.
This program provides short term support up to two hours in the home to meet the needs of the carer and member. It can give you both a break and can also give you the chance to meet new people or attend an appointment.
There is a client contribution fee payable for each day of attendance and costs associated with outings.
For further information please contact the Cottage and ask to speak with the Coordinator.
My husband attended Myrtle Cottage in the Bell program for a few years enjoying the activities and social interaction that it provided. He always came home with huge smile on his face and a full belly. He made many friendships whilst attending, I found the staff exceptional in their dedication to him.
