Find quality, caring support at The Cottage

We’re proud of our service at The Cottage in Rushcutters Bay.

We offer personalised support for people living with dementia, their families, and carers.

The Cottage is our dedicated dementia day centre.

It provides a safe, secure and friendly environment.

Here, clients can find a sense of belonging and social connection.

 

Living well with dementia

A dementia diagnosis is not an impediment to enjoying life.

People with dementia can still take part in the community.

The Cottage offers a range of services to people with dementia and memory loss.

The service is a mixture of centre-based day care and diversional therapy.

 A harbour view

The Cottage, which overlooks Sydney Harbour, is open from Monday to Friday.

Our activities help unlock memories and keep brains active.

They include:

  • Social discussions
  • Games
  • Quizzes
  • Art therapy
  • Crafts
  • Daily walks; and 
  • Exploring the sights on the drive home.

Volunteer give their time to provide friendly conversation and companionship, music, and creative activities. 

Clients can attend with a GP diagnosis, through myagedcare.gov.au, or by self-referral.

The daily cost starts at $45 and can be funded as part of an Aged Care Package.
