Managed by Bethanie on behalf of Curtin Care, RiverSea in Mosman Park is designed to provide care, individual support and assistance to residents on a daily basis and their Dementia Care environment is unique in Perth.
Findings show that there are six major requirements for providing a dementia care environment which maintains a person’s autonomy and RiverSea has been designed with these requirements in mind.

Accommodation is cosy and comfortable and quiet informal spaces allow quiet rest or time away from noise. Outdoor areas are easily accessible and plantings and fences help to reduce background noise. There's also signage to enable a person to easily find their way around and there are areas to socialise with family and friends, who play a vital role in resident care.

Empowerment through choice is also important and living at RiverSea offers options for accommodation in a range of villas and hostel rooms that you can furnish according to your taste. 
The houses are grouped and connected to create an easy  community feel, but residents still enjoy private spaces. And both residents and families enjoy the peace of mind of knowing there's secure entry and that assistance is available 24 hours a day.
Dementia is something which impacts the whole family and creating a dementia-friendly environment is really important, whether it's at home or in a residential care facility. And because one of the key components of dealing with Dementia is wellbeing, Bethanie staff are trained to deliver person-centred care that ensures residents and their families feel at home.

And while we here at Home in WA celebrate our 500th Episode, it turns out that our friends here at Bethanie are also celebrating a quinte-centennial milestone... their 500th volunteer!

Thomas Quigley started out as a volunteer with Bethanie and despite the fact that he's now employed at RiverSea, he continues to volunteer his time after hours.
