 What services does Dunmunkle Lodge Inc. offer?

We’re proud to offer exceptional nursing home accommodation. We have a wide range of facilities available to our residents, depending on the level of care needed. From short-term respite care services for patients, to longer term residential care, our trained staff of nurses and carers deliver a wide range of care. We also offer independent living units in Minyip and Murtoa for those wanting to maintain their independence, without suffering the burden of managing a large home.

Keeping social and active is an important part of our aged care accommodation program. We organise a variety of activities and programs for our residents, including:

  • monthly bus trips to local landmarks and places of interest
  • special international-themed luncheons
  • Happy Hour at the Lodge from 2.30pm – 3.30pm every Friday
  • short courses including computer and technology sessions
  • fundraisers, fairs and presentations.

We’ve recently launched our new Connect Program in partnership with Minyip Primary School. Each fortnight our residents are invited to join students in the classroom. This gives our residents a chance to connect with the youth community and create stronger relationships between young and old.
