Secure Facility

Pets Allowed

Situated on leafy acreage in the Granville suburb of Maryborough, PresCare Groundwater Lodge is set in a relaxed country environment that creates a sense of peace and tranquillity.

With individual rooms and private en-suites providing residential care for 60 (including 20 beds in a dementia specific area) accommodation at PresCare Groundwater Lodge is arranged in small wings to create a feeling of neighbourhood and community.  Walkways are provided throughout for ease of access to central courtyards as well as to outdoor BBQ areas where families are always welcome to enjoy time with their loved one in our care.

Knowing how important it is for our care recipients to be comfortable and feel like they are living in a home away from home, we encourage families to bring in personal items to decorate their rooms– things like photos, paintings, a favourite throw rug, music, a pot plant or flowers.

Meals are cooked on site and served in dining rooms allowing care recipients to connect with each other.  But if preferred, a care recipient can also choose to take their meals in their own room. Family members are always welcome to share a meal with their loved one, and private nooks are available for these occasions.  Talk to our care staff or Receptionist, and they’ll make all of the arrangements for you.

Personal items are sent to the main laundry on a daily basis.

Care at Groundwater Lodge is based on a model of ‘Transforming Care at the Bedside’, a pro-active philosophy where staff conduct regular checks in anticipation of addressing the needs of care recipients before they have to ask.  Care and services are provided by qualified, highly trained and skilled staff.  Registered nurses are trained to provide palliative care as well as general nursing care, and they work closely with general practitioners, geriatricians, medical specialists, nurse practitioners and allied health staff.
