First-Class Care & Support Services
The Odyssey model is simple: it’s your home, with care built-in. We deliver personalised care and support services covering initial care, moderate care, high care through to extra high care and dementia care.
We’ve built our Flexicare packages to be delivered at cost and fully customisable to you so that you receive the highest quality of care. This enables you to have as much independence as you desire, while still having the reassurance that care is available to you 24/7.
This is the first level of care that Odyssey provides, for those residents who require some help and don’t have extensive and complex medical requirements.
Sometimes people require just a little bit more than what Initial Care provides, but don’t quite need all that High Care entails. At Odyssey we can ebb and flow to find the level of care that suits your evolving needs.
Residents who have High Care needs will tend to require assistance at several points throughout the day with a number of different tasks, and tend to need help with mobility issues.
Unlike most traditional aged care facilities, we are able to provide all levels of care at Odyssey, so residents don’t have to move between facilities when their care needs change.
Extra High Care
We are able to cater for all levels of care at Odyssey—even residents who require Extra High Care. These residents require attention in order to ensure their needs are met and are comfortable.
In the last stages of their life, residents do not need to be in a foreign environment, alone with strangers. At this important time, Odyssey provides the opportunity for residents to be in their own home, where family can stay and with staff that know and love them.
Government Funded Care Packages
Care at Odyssey can be compatible with a range of government funded care packages, including Consumer Directed Care packages. Our staff will be able to advise you of how our weekly care packages can fit in with these services and subsidies.
Our care staff also work with other support services such as physiotherapy, speech pathology, podiatry etc.
There are four types of clinical staff at Odyssey Lifestyle Care Communities: Registered Nurses (RN), Endorsed Enrolled Nurses (EEN), Assistants in Nursing (AIN) and Carers, all of whom are qualified staff. There is always a Registered Nurse onsite at all times.
Dementia Care and Management
Odyssey is able to provide care for most residents with dementia. Residents are able to continue living within their own home with their partner, while Carers work with them in order to provide an environment that is happy, safe and comfortable.
