Welcome to Tuohy

undefined

 

“We would like to extend our hands of friendship to you and your family.”       

 Tuohy is located in the beautiful Swan Valley region. Our bright and welcoming home offers large activity areas and lounges, all surrounded by beautiful gardens.

Led by the Residential Care Manager Jayne Cummings, staff at Tuohy Aged Care Home have won two Commonwealth Better Practice Awards from the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency. This prestigious national award recognises outstanding innovations in care. 

The 2015 Better Practice Award rewarded Tuohy for their approach to supporting the care needs of older people of diverse sexual orientations. Through a multidisciplinary program, staff have been able to foster a culture within the home that is inclusive and accepting of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) residents.

The 2017 Better Practice Award recognised the support and care taken to ensure care recipients’ final wishes are being identified and respected. Partnering with care recipients, their representatives, care staff, and community links, the home developed the My Life, My Wishes booklet to document care recipients' life stories, preferences and requirements. 

 

  • Diversity and inclusivity Read more

    We are proud of our demonstrated leadership in providing inclusive aged care and welcome all people regardless of lifestyle choices, ethnicity, faith, sexual orientation or gender identity.

    With the support of Perth-based group GLBTI Rights in Australia (GRAI), Tuohy’s Residential Care Manager Jayne Cummings and her staff have been able to work with residents to ensure their needs are met with inclusive and appropriate actions.

    Jayne and her staff received in-house training from GRAI, who work to raise awareness and improve the quality of life for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) elders, earlier in 2015 as part of the Federal Government-funded National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Training Project.

    As an organisation, Hall & Prior is responding to the need for appropriate care by creating an LGBTI policy and has formed a committee to ensure the comprehensive rollout of inclusive language through all forms and documentation.

    The insights from Tuohy’s journey have been shared with our homes across the organisation, supporting residents who face a similar journey and providing a positive model for GRAI to share as they help other nursing homes in their education and support programs for gender and sexuality in aged care homes.

  • Our approach to care Read more

    For your peace of mind, we provide 24-hour care by registered nurses who are supported by a dedicated team of enrolled nurses and personal carers. We have the expertise to assist with complex care requirements, and will always discuss your care with you and your family.

    In recognition of our very high standards of care and services, Tuohy has been fully accredited by the Australian Government meeting all 44 of the expected outcomes.

     

  • Lifestyle and activities Read more

    Staying active and socialising is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Our activity program changes each month, but will always include bus trips and outings, arts and crafts, movie days and theme days. We have a number of volunteers supporting our home and have regular musical performances, fetes, raffles and visits from school groups.

    From bus trips and concerts to gardening activities, a men’s club and summer barbecues in our garden, there’s always something to do at Tuohy.

    Friends and family are more than welcome to join in any of our activities.

    Your room will be furnished for you, but we encourage you to bring personal belongings such as photographs and soft furnishings to help you feel at home. There are television sets that you can watch in our common rooms, but you are welcome to bring you own television or radio if you wish.

  • Food and nutrition Read more

    Enjoying a variety of delicious, nutritionally balanced meals is an important part of maintaining good health. From our central kitchen, our executive chef, sous chef and dietician create menus that provide variety and maximum nutritional value without compromising on taste. We offer choices of hot and cold meals, cater for allergies, intolerances and culturally-specific needs, and create a special menu for a theme day each month.

    You can view some of our menu options by reading our What's on the menu? flyer.
