Dementia Action Week 2023 – Raising awareness for dignified dementia care

Did you know that there are more than 400,000 Australians living with dementia, and without a medical breakthrough, the number is projected to increase to 800,000 by 2058?

With so many Australians and their families and friends affected by dementia, Dementia Action Week is an important time to raise awareness for this condition and create a dementia-friendly community. 

From 18 to 24 September, join us in recognising the significance of Dementia Action Week and the collective effort to enhance the lives of those affected by dementia. At HillView Care, our team is committed to providing exceptional dementia care that emphasises the importance of showing respect, valuing individuality and demonstrating a deep level of understanding. 

The foundation of compassionate dementia care at HillView Care

Dignity and respect is at the heart of our dementia care here at our Gold Coast aged care homes. We understand every person has unique needs and our staff respect their individuality and different life experiences. 

Our dementia care team is carefully selected for their experience, skills and genuine passion for caring for others. Their approach to dementia care is founded in their ability to form strong bonds with our residents and prioritise respectful and personalised care. 

One of the key elements of high-quality care is communication, and our team works closely with families to gain a comprehensive understanding of each resident’s life experiences and interests. This collaborative approach allows us to tailor our care to meet everyone’s unique needs. 

Family support

As mentioned, although we’re primarily caring for your loved ones, we take a collaborative approach. We understand having a family member with dementia can be emotionally challenging for families as well, so we’re here to support families by providing education and creating a beautiful environment where our residents can spend quality time with the people they care about the most. 


Holistic care

Holistic care is an important aspect of promoting overall well-being that includes not just physical health but also mental, emotional, and social aspects to ensure a comprehensive and balanced approach to your loved one’s health and quality of life.

Our commitment to providing dignified dementia care is reflected in our approach here at HillView Care, which includes:

  • Private ensuite: Each room is designed to provide comfort and privacy, with a private ensuite to make things easier for residents.
  • Comfortable living: Individually controlled air-conditioning ensures a comfortable living environment for our residents.
  • Housekeeping: Daily housekeeping ensures our residents live in a clean and comfortable environment.
  • Quality medical care: We have a dedicated medical team to provide the highest quality healthcare services.
  • Food and dining: Both our Merrimac and Ashmore residential aged care homes have on-site chefs preparing fresh, healthy and delicious meals every day. 
  • Lifestyle activities: Our residents enjoy a wide range of lifestyle activities designed to engage, encourage learning and entertain residents. 
  • Beautiful gardens: Our facilities have lovely gardens where residents can enjoy the outdoors and the tranquillity of nature.
  • Safety and security: Measures are in place to ensure the safety and well-being of all our residents.
  • Beauty services: On-site hair and beauty services are available to help residents look and feel their best.
