Douro Lodge

Kanandah has a proud record of caring for residents in our memory support unit that is an integral part of the facility. Douro Lodge provides specialised care to and security for these residents, including those who have been diagnosed with dementia.


Each resident is accommodated in their own single bedroom with ensuite bathroom. Douro Lodge provides residents with three large indoor lounge activity areas where the residents enjoy a comprehensive, seven days per week activities programme that is specifically developed to ensure the maximum participation by each resident.

Mortimer Cottage


We were very proud in September 2016 to open a newly constructed additional wing to our facility called Mortimer Cottage. Mortimer Cottage consists of ten new single bedroom ensuite resident rooms, a lovely fountain courtyard, beautifully decorated lounge dining and living spaces and a large garden area being developed. Residents are largely independent with their daily activities though there is staff on hand daily to assist with meal preparation, social activities, delivery of medications and even higher level clinical needs of the residents. Mortimer Cottage is a secure unit, meaning that staff and visitors will need a personal PIN code which can be issued easily at the reception desk in the Hostel.


Respite Care

Kanandah is able to offer respite care in the main facility, in Douro Lodge, and in Mortimer Cottage. 

Naturally an advance booking is necessary in most instances.

Each single bed respite room has its own ensuite bathroom. The respite rooms are fully furnished with an appropriate bed, bedside cabinet and a comfortable lounge chair. A television set and fridge are included where possible.
