Aged Care Activities & Programs

We offer our Residents more than just aged care accommodation. At Dunmunkle Lodge we encourage a sense of friendship and community. Whether your loved one is receiving respite care at our Nursing Home or enjoying independent living, there are a range of activities and programs we encourage.

Our team of staff and volunteers frequently organise barbecues and other events at Dunmunkle Lodge, and friends and family are always welcome to come along. We also delight in planning a variety of activities across the Wimmera for our Residents, including:

  • Happy Hour at the Lodge from 2.30pm – 3.30pm every Friday
  • Monthly bus trips to local landmarks and places of interest
  • Special international-themed luncheons
  • Fundraisers and fairs
  • Short courses including computer and technology sessions

The new ‘Connect Program’ has also been launched in partnership with Minyip Primary School, inviting Residents 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.

At Dunmunkle Lodge each of our Residential Aged Care facilities has a fully refurbished indoor common area including a sunroom, dining room, quiet room and hairdressing salon.

Our Residents can use this common area to play a range of games or cards, and indulge their hobbies, including cooking and baking.

We also encourage our Residents to enjoy the beautiful surrounds at Dunmunkle Lodge with outdoor common areas including a range of features;

  • Alfresco dining area
  • Undercover barbecue area
  • Picturesque gardens
  • Walking paths
  • Pond and viewing platform
  • Gazebo

Families and friends of Residents are always welcome to take their loved ones on outings, and all our Residents are invited to make use of bus transport to nearby towns. Information about various programs is available to download on our Nursing Home resources page.
