A Message from The CEO - 26 March 2020

Dear Resident and Family/Representative

Residential aged care facilities have been advised by the Health Department to have appropriate precautions in place to ensure residents continue to remain safe from coronavirus COVID-19. One of our precautionary measures has been to place restrictions on visitors to the home.

There are now a number of confirmed cases of coronavirus COVID-19 in Dubbo and the Central West, therefore based on this development Orana Gardens Ltd will be closed to visitors effective 5pm Thursday 26 March 2020 until further notice.

This is a purely a precautionary measure as the home does not have any cases of coronavirus at this time. An action of this nature is designed to prevent further spread and transmission of coronavirus COVID-19 from the community into the home.

We will continue to provide residents with their nursing, medical and allied health needs and we will continue to monitor each resident’s health on an ongoing basis. There will be no disruption to pharmacy or other essential services into the home. I understand this measure will be upsetting for everyone and the action has not been taken lightly, nevertheless our overriding concern is to prevent the virus entering the home.

If you have concerns about this matter please talk with senior staff members Rachel Chifamba Clinical RN or Maryanne Chatfield Clinical Care Coordinator on 6841 4100. Mrs Rebecca McDonald Facility Manager is also available to take your call. The senior staff will be happy to talk with you and answer any of your concerns. We will keep you advised of any further changes via email.

Should you require further information regarding coronavirus COVID-19 please refer to the Commonwealth Department of Health website:

Orana Gardens has been great and staff are diligent in their cares!

Staff have been superb! Staff are on the clock with dad’s cares and meet all his personal needs!

I want to thank the staff for providing care to our mum and dad who both resided in OG, the care was outstanding and amazing, staff always went out of their way to make their parents comfortable and cared for.

Staff also looked after the family when they passed away – a sad but amazing experience with the support and understanding of staff. OG will always hold a special place in our hearts.

The new menu is excellent as well as the quality of the food being served – compliments to the cooks and kitchen staff who work tirelessly in the kitchen.

I am  very please with the service mum receives. Mum could not be in better care anywhere else!

I am very impressed by the Home! Everyone is helpful, friendly and cooperative and this is reflected in the feeling of residents and visitors. The home is open, friendly, clean, tidy, happy and vital.

I want to thank everyone so very much for the care of my mum, it was a comfort knowing that she was in such good hands at OG. Thank you for helping us during the admission process and ensuring the family understood everything.

Thank you for your smiles and wonderful good cheer, OG has wonderful people and our family really appreciated that. A special thank you to the nurses who stayed with mum during her last night who are special caring people. We will always be grateful.

Dad shared that he is very pleased with his decision to come to OG. He also added he is thankful that we have opened our doors to his friends.

I am exceedingly pleased with the ongoing care that my father has received over the 9 years he has been at OG!

The love and care shown to mum during her time at OG was exceptional. We are eternally grateful!

Dad has settled well and the transition has been better than expected. Mum and dad are happy and satisfied with their daily routines. SO happy for mum and dad to be together!

The meal that was served for dinner yesterday, was cooked beautifully!

As dad slowly deteriorates, the special care he receives has increased to ensure his needs are met.
