Kankinya Lodge is a great addition to the Kankinya building in Lyneham. Kankinya Lodge boasts 28, well-appointed rooms that match Kankinya’s vision of what Aged Care should be. As well as the private en-suite rooms, the facility is equipped with a number of common areas such as large lounge rooms, spacious dining room, a lot of outdoor areas including a covered breezeway, and a tea and coffee room for residents and visitors to use when they would like.
Each Private En-suite room is equipped with a single electric bed which is adjustable for comfort and ease of use, wall mounted television, a comfortable chair and a large internal wardrobe. All the above features are for the leisure of our residents but we also take our residents safety very seriously. Throughout the room we have nurse call buttons which alert our professional nurses of someone in need of assistance, these are located next to the bed and in the bathroom. As well as personal alerting systems, we take building security and fire prevention very seriously. With this comes a state of the art fire alarm system with top of the line detectors and sprinklers. Also we have a large amount of security cameras on the outside of the building to ensure safety for all our residents. Not only do these cameras record daily events around the home, they are displayed to our nurses who can then better manage our outdoor areas for maximum peace of mind for both residents and families.
Here at Kankinya we believe a facility is not a home until the food is perfect, just like at home. Food is essential for the body for obvious reasons but a delicious home cooked and home styled meal really can improve the mental and physical well-being of a person. This is why we cook everything on site to create the aromas, taste and feelings of a warm household.
