Visiting hours in SummitCare facilities are very flexible and try and accommodate resident and family needs wherever possible. Visiting hours generally commence at 8:00am and extend to 8:00 in the evening. However, visiting hours may be extended depending on residents' needs. If visiting outside normal hours you are requested to keep noise to a minimum.
Yes, you can either ask your current doctor if they will continue to provide care once you have entered the centre, or you can choose from a list of GPs given to you by the centre. It is your responsibility to arrange for ongoing medical care by a general practitioner prior to entering the home.
This is dependant on your assessed needs. Residents requiring assistance are supported by staff whenever required.
When a resident becomes ill the general practitioner is notified in the first instance. Should the medical officer not be available then depending on the severity of the illness they will be transferred to hospital following notification of the person responsible.
