Dementia Care

Long term residential care at dementia level

Bethany Hill provides dementia level care – a 30-bed facility which provides a protected living environment for people who are affected by dementia and related disorders. We provide long term residential care, respite care, day care and care for under 65 with disability. We are set in a peaceful rural setting with magnificent southern views over Whangateau Harbour and Omaha Bay and beautiful native bushes and hills on our north and west boundaries.

Awareness Day

The goal of this day was to increase awareness of dementia within the Warkworth and Wellsford Community. 

It was a resounding success, with over 70 people in attendance.

Christmas Party

At Bethany Hill, our residents can enjoy watching the chickens and guinea fowls in the courtyard. There are garden beds – residents can actively participate in gardening. 

The design maximises indoor-outdoor flow. Residents are free to wander safely through the park-like surroundings without feeling confined. 

There are farm animals in the neighbouring paddocks, fruit trees and a vegetable garden which residents are encouraged to help tend. 

We believe that living with dementia does not mean being confined indoors. Rather, the engagement with nature each day can bring benefits both physically and mentally.


Nature & Animals

Residents can enjoy watching the birds and guinea fowls playing in the court yards and native bushes. Sensory gardens, a chicken coop and many other features provide freedom and instil a feeling of peace for all our residents. These areas are very functional with unrestricted access designed specifically to support the people with dementia.


We have dedicated activity coordinators who organise activities, such as arts and crafts, gardening, walking to the beach, van outings, exercise and sing along music. Our activities result in social interaction which enriches the resident’s physical and mental well-being.

Nursing Care

Our nursing care provides a 24/7 supervision for our residents. Our approach to nursing care is based on the use of personalised care plans. Drawn up with the individuals we support and their families, our care plans will help ensure that each person we look after is treated with respect and that their independence and choices are maximised.

There are two other wings that support up to 20 people, also requiring secure dementia level care. They have their own dining room, a lounge, large decks and easy access to the gardens.

“We found this place by referral from the medical team. We did look at other options, and we felt that this place has an indoor and outdoor setting and is more than what you can hope for.”

"Wow! You have such wonderful staff. They really care! I love seeing them having a cuppa with dad talking about stuff. It just looks like something normal!"
"The staff are always willing to discuss my husband's care, I cannot fault the care and attention he has and is receiving from the management and the staff. I have no hesitation in recommending this smaller secure country home for anyone with dementia."
