Residential Care – Commonly Asked Questions
It is important that the clothing a Care Recipient wears is both comfortable and easy to both put on and take off. Easy wear and easy-care fabrics are ideal for clothing to maintain a good look and yet at the same time the item of clothing is serviceable.
Some Care Recipient require clothing that opens down the back and fastens with Velcro or tapes for ease of changing clothes with a minimum of difficulty. The staff can help you choose appropriate clothing if required. Some companies specialise in ready-made clothing for this purpose. The Nurse, Facilitator or manager can provide relevant information if required.

As a guideline it is suggested that a Care Recipient has the following as a minimum:

  • 8 sets of day clothing suitable for varying temperatures
  • 8 sets of underclothing consisting of singlets/vests and knickers/underpants
  • 12 Handkerchiefs
  • 6 pair of socks/stocking
  • 4 cardigans or tops
  • Comfortable and supportive day shoes with a low heel
  • Slippers for sitting
  • A jacket if the resident goes on an outing
  • Hat for when sitting or walking outside if this is appropriate
  • 6 sets of night wear i.e. PJ’s or Nightdresses
  • Dressing gown
Laundry Service for Personal Clothing
Centre Residential Care Health Service provides a laundry service. However, facilities are not available for any woollens or heavy clothing.
To ensure that delicate fabrics are maintained in excellent order we suggest that woollen or delicate fabric garments are taken home for families to launder or they may be dry cleaned. The dry cleaning remains the Care Recipient’s or family’s responsibility.
Centre Residential Care Health Service provides for laundering of personal clothing. All personal items of laundry should be clearly marked with the owner’s name, preferably welded name tags or sewn on tags. The home cannot accept any responsibility for any lost or misplaced items.
Centre Residential Care Health Service can provide suitable labels for the Care Recipient. These labels can be welded onto all types of fabrics and are very suitable for the needs of clear identification of personal clothing.
Clothing Identification Labels
All clothing is to be labelled with the Care Recipient’s name. A marking pen is not suitable as this does fade in time and makes it difficult to identify and track clothing.
Centre Residential Care Health Service is able to provide a quality Name Label system using labels that are able to be welded onto all garments including nylon stockings and woollen socks. There is an initial cost of $50 which will be added to the residents monthly account, staff will be able to apply these labels. Our staff will be happy to discuss this with you.
You may wish to provide your own labels and sew them onto each garment.
Cleaning Services
All electrical equipment that is brought to the facility is to be safety tested by our Maintenance department to ensure its safety and compliance with standards.
Our Friendly staff are schedule for cleaning and monitoring safe house keeping on a regular basis.
Centre Residential Care Residence, we value our Care Recipients and look to achieving the best outcome for their level of care needs on a day to day bases and maintain occupational health and safety standards.
Personal Refrigerators and Externally Produced Food Items
All Care Recipients in consultation with relatives or significant others are welcome to have choice in deciding what they would like to bring into our Residential Care facility and what food they may choose to eat.
If Care Recipients or relatives choose to have a small refrigerator within a Care Recipient’s room, they must therefore assume responsibility for the contents and cleaning. Whilst we may endeavour to ensure food safety, Centre Residential Carecannot take responsibility for the monitoring or controlling of refrigerator temperature, contents from external sources or consumption thereof. Charges may apply
Television Sets/CD Players
You may wish to bring in your own. Our recommendation is a flat screen TV of a maximum 54cm size. This can be wall mounted to reduce OH&S risks to staff and family members.
In theCentre Residential Care – television sets and. DVD player is fitted in the main lounge room – just see the Facilitator or Manager.
It is suggested that you bring in a small CD player as we encourage Care Recipients to bring in favourite CD’s or tapes to play in their room for enjoyment.
It may be possible for you to bring in some furniture following discussion with the Unit Manager to ensure that the furniture is appropriate for the Care Recipient’s needs and that there is adequate room for it. In a shared room this is sometimes more difficult due to space limitations. The safety of our Care Recipient and staff is always paramount.
Often a Care Recipient has a favourite chair at home and would like to bring it in to the home and placed in their room. Our Occupational Therapists are able to assess the Care Recipient and make a recommendation as to the suitability of the chair.
The Care Recipient’s room is their home and we encourage you to bring in pictures or photographs to personalise their room.
We provide beds, mattresses, pillows, linen for the bed and any pressure relieving devices/mattresses as may be deemed appropriate for the Care Recipient following assessment of care needs and availabilities. We encourage the Care Recipient to bring in their own doona and cover or bedspread to add their own familiar personal touch. You may have a favourite pillow and you are welcome to bring this in for your comfort.

For many of us pets are like family. They can offer companionship and unconditional love. At Ark Of Truth Residence we are very aware how difficult it is for many people to transition to residential care and that this can be even more difficult if there are pets to consider. We are aware that leaving a pet behind may be very difficult. Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to allow pets, due to issues not limited to Occupational health & safety, allergies, environmental hazards etc.
Your pet may visit but this must be discussed with the Facilitator or Manager. Should you require assistance in finding a new home for your pet.

Infection Control
Ark Of Truth Heath Services takes every precaution to prevent the spread of infections. Infections are most commonly spread via hands and all staff receives regular education in relation to when and how to clean their hands. Hand gel and hand wash products are placed throughout the facilities for the use of both visitors and staff. Visitors to the facilities are encouraged to clean their hands before entering a facility, before leaving and between coming into contact with more than one Care Recipient.
Care Recipients are more prone to contracting infections such as influenza and gastroenteritis therefore we would ask family members experiencing symptoms of either condition to refrain from visiting the facility for up to 48 hours after the symptoms have disappeared.
All Care Recipients are offered annual vaccination for influenza from March. You will be notified and offered a consent form when vaccines are available. All Care Recipients are strongly encouraged to receive this vaccination.
