Congratulations to Mosman Park Aged Care Home who have won a Better Practice Award from the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency for their commitment to caring for and rehabilitating older people with complex and challenging physical and mental health issues.
"I am so happy to be able to receive this award on behalf of my staff. Over the past four years, we have built a reputation for providing care for people that have nowhere else to go," Director of Nursing, Devi Subramaniam explains. "Our success comes down to getting to know each resident as an individual and working out how best to care for them. We work as a team and focus on education to help our staff to deal with complex cognitive and physical care needs on a case-by-case basis."
Announced at the Better Practice Conference in Sydney, the highly-anticipated Better Practice Awards are an honour in the aged care industry. They recognise innovative approaches to health and personal care, living environments, resident lifestyle and staff development that are sustainable and transferrable, encouraging the continuous improvement of Australian aged care.
Entitled New beginnings, Mosman Park's winning application describes a six-step process that has been used at the home since 2010 to devise individualised, person-centred approaches to care and rehabilitation for people with complex physical and mental health issues.
In the four years since they began using the approach, the home has seen outstanding results and this award showcases the calibre of care that Devi and her staff work so hard to deliver.
This award marks Hall & Prior's sixth Better Practice Award since 2011. You can read more about these on our awards page or email Ellen Thurley, Marketing and Communications Manager firstname.lastname@example.org
