Torbay has seen a significant increase in the need for dementia care/memory support and accommodation in the Wide Bay Region. As a result, Torbay’s Board approved the development of a state of the art Dementia/Memory Support Unit with the goal of creating a supportive and enriching environment for residents requiring this type of support. This innovative centre of excellence is called Daisy Nook.
Since its establishment in 2015, and based on the popularity and clear need for this type of specialist accommodation Daisy Nook has expanded from 12 to 29 rooms. With memory stimulating gardens and structures, private and communal seating areas , murals, walkways and undercover areas, Residents and families are encouraged to enjoy the discreetly secure area at their leisure.
