Bardan Cottage Newcastle

Bardan Cottage senior centres offer a stimulating, safe and supportive environment in which older people can gain independence, comfort and companionship.

The Layout of our Day Care Centre

As part of our commitment to encouraging independence, combating isolation and promoting early intervention, when deciding upon the layout and decoration of the centres careful consideration was given to the needs of older people in our community and people with dementia.

Environment, lighting and orientation are some of the most important factors in ensuring that the design of our buildings helps to alleviate, rather than aggravate, the symptoms of our guests who suffer from dementia, poor eyesight, poor hearing and other conditions.
