About Our Community
A beautiful facility located within the central convenience of Macquarie Park, Dorothy Henderson Lodge is home to a community that cares. The Lodge provides 66 single rooms for residents requiring simple care and comfort, and 13 secure dementia rooms for those who need a higher level of support. All of our rooms have en-suites, balconies, large built-in wardrobes, and emergency-monitoring systems for your safety and security.
With 24/7 nursing support, our skilled staff members never underestimate the power of individual care – it’s what we’re here for. That’s why life at Dorothy Henderson Lodge has never worked around an itinerary; it works around you. Enjoy the convenience of an on-site hairdresser, podiatrist, physiotherapist, social outings, a well-resourced library, church services and many other benefits. Blessed with spacious sitting areas and luscious, well-kept gardens, you will find plenty of space to sit back and put your feet up. Or, if you prefer to get out and about for the day, we have a full calendar of activities for you to get involved with – it’s entirely up to you. You decide how you spend your time – and we support you all the way.

We want to ensure your time with us is spent enjoying the sorts of activities you like to do. From crafts, live entertainment, music and diversional therapy, social events, exercise and much more - our lifestyle coordinators can tailor a program that works for you.

Church Services and Spiritual Support
Our chaplain regularly holds church services that cater to a broad range of people. We understand your spiritual journey is personal, so we aim to support your spiritual needs - whatever stage you are at on your walk.

All non-supported residents who have assets above the current partially supported cut off level will be required to pay either a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) or a lump sum Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) or a combination of lump sum refundable accommodation deposit (RAD) and the balance of the RAD as an equivalent Daily Payment (DAP). The pricing listed below is the maximum pricing for the category of the room and may vary depending on your individual circumstances.
To calculate the equivalent daily payment, the refundable accommodation deposit is multiplied by the current maximum permissible interest rate (MPIR)* and divided by 365 days.
For example, a refundable deposit of $550,000 would have an equivalent daily payment of:
i.e. ($550,000 x 4.98%) / 365 = $75.04 per day
Optional Services Provided At An Additional Cost
