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 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.
LifestyleAt BlueCross Karinya Grove, a well-developed leisure and lifestyle program is packed with activities such as physiotherapy, music, Have a Go art classes, exercise and regular bus outings.
Movies are screened in the on-site cinema, and residents have access to a well-stocked library with a communal computer with internet access.
Some of the lounge rooms feature large flat screen televisions or craft areas and there is a billiards table for residents to enjoy a game with friends.
Food is freshly prepared on site in our kitchen and served to each level and zone by our catering staff.
Those who seek quiet reflection will enjoy the sanctuary of the on-site chapel and weekly non-denominational services.
BlueCross residences provide a high level of hotel services, with laundry, gardening, housekeeping, cleaning and maintenance all included.
