To ensure the highest possible quality care, our Residence Manager oversees a team of dedicated and qualified care professionals, including a Clinical Care Coordinator, nurses and personal carers.
Our care model is flexible and responsive to individual care needs even as they change, including the provision of specialised nursing care and palliative care if needed. This person-centred approach is designed to support each resident to maintain their dignity and independence wherever possible.
We are committed to consistency and quality of care and thus implemented an initiative in 2016 to reduce (and ultimately cease) use of agency staff in our residences. This means our nurses and carers are regular staff who know the residents and are familiar with their needs and preferences.
We also work with a range of partners on programs to support social, physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual wellbeing to ensure the best overall health outcomes for each resident.
STARLife dementia care model
People living with dementia experience symptoms that may affect their memory, thinking, behaviour and ability to perform everyday activities. At BlueCross, we specialise in dementia care and through STARLife, our exclusive research-based dementia care model, provide tailored programs within the residence to improve the quality of life for people living with dementia.
LifestyleAt BlueCross Hansworth, in keeping with our STARFish principles – which includes taking a professional and accountable approach; listening to our residents; ensuring their expectations are exceeded each day; and creating a fun-filled, positive environment for them – we focus on giving our residents a comprehensive program of stimulating and relaxing activities each week.
They may choose to unwind with Chair Chi, enjoy a movie matinee, sing along with Kevin the piano man, practice dance skills or delight in an organised mystery bus tour.
In one of the quieter corners, they may wish to meditate, complete a crossword or enjoy the companionship of Max, the visiting therapy dog. Those who love to get their hands dirty without leaving the premises may prefer to garden in the raised vegetable bed or feed the birds in one of the courtyards.
BlueCross Hansworth offers an on-site hair salon so you can enjoy being pampered and groomed on site on a fee for service basis.
Our on-site chef prepares fresh, healthy meals every day, which are created to ensure your nutritional needs and preferences are catered to.
BlueCross residences provide a high level of hotel services, with laundry, gardening, housekeeping, cleaning and maintenance all included.
