Orana Gardens employs fully trained Recreational Activities Officer’s to ensure all emotional and lifestyle needs are met, and to encourage engagement.
Activity is a great tool to settle and counteract behaviours associated with the disease of dementia.
The home has introduced innovative technologies that studies have proven to assist with dementia through their Virtual Reality program. The program allows residents to explore the world and the environment without leaving the secure and safe environment of their home at Orana Gardens. The home welcomes schools and the community into the facility to perform and interact with the residents. Family and friends are welcome to attend. Weekly bus trips and garden walks allow residents to get out and about. The home utilises Pet Therapy through the Delta Dog program and Orana’s pet Birds.
