Dementia Deakin Cottage ‘a blessing’

15 Mar 2018

WIN News Canberra presented a lovely story on Carers ACT’s Deakin Cottage, a welcoming four bedroom home catering for those with dementia or ageing. Listen to why devoted carer Chris Lourandis, 88, loved staying at the Cottage with his wife Pania, 82.

Do you care for someone living with dementia or ageing? Need a break? We are taking bookings over Easter (and beyond) to give carers a much-needed break from caring. You can bring your loved one here for a short stay in our nurturing ‘home away from home’ environment. A welcome alternative to short stays at aged care homes.

You can even choose to stay at the Cottage with your partner if you’d rather be together (but have all the chores done for you!) as Chris and Pania did. They recently had a two week full-time stay and Chris said it was an absolute blessing.

“We were fed and looked after. Lovely company. They’re all wonderful people here”.
