As you will discover, making the move to one of our residential aged care homes doesn’t mean you have to give up your independence or the things you love. Anglicare’s residential aged care homes are thoughtfully designed to feel just like home.
If your care needs change over time, Anglicare has specific memory support available in some of our homes, as well as quality end of life care. That means you can receive the care and compassion you need at every stage.
At Anglicare, we have a special philosophy which we call 'Rhythm of Life®’. It is about making sure the care you receive works with your unique rhythms, because you deserve the very best in personalised residential aged care. You deserve the kind of care and compassion that enables you to keep doing the things which give your life meaning and joy, each and every day. Rhythm of Life® is exclusive to Anglicare and is based on eight, important guiding principles.
This principle underpins the care you will receive at an Anglicare residential aged care home. We will take the time to understand what is important to you, your daily rhythm and what gives you purpose and joy, as we seek to honour you and your story.
You’ll be shown respect every day and through every interaction you have with Anglicare staff. That includes simple but important things like whether you prefer to be called by your first name or something more formal, as well as respecting your privacy in your own room.
‘Dignity of risk’ means you have the right to live the life you choose, even if your choices involve some risk. You might also like to join a group of resident representatives, who meet monthly with Anglicare staff to guide us in making decisions that relate to your life.
Relationships that bring meaning to you will be supported and encouraged. There are several places in each of Anglicare’s homes to share meals, celebrations and activities of interest with people you care about.
This means caring for your wellbeing as a whole person – body, mind and spirit. Where possible, we’ll help you to continue with the interests and hobbies that are important to you.
While residential aged care homes are both a home and a workplace, Anglicare’s staff are dedicated to making sure it’s first and foremost your home. Your room should feel like you, so decorate it with personal items that are important to you.
Anglicare staff will ask lots of questions, and also listen. That’s because we want to know what is important to you so we can allow for your preferences where possible. For example, whether you’d like to administer your own medications, eat in your room, go to bed late or even use our do not disturb signs.
If you ever need a someone to talk to or pray with, your chaplain or pastoral carer will be there to support and love you, regardless of your religion or background.
Transitioning into residential aged care can seem overwhelming, but we are here to help you through every step.
Browse Anglicare’s range of residential aged care homes in more detail – including the list of services and facilities at each home. Once you have your ACAT you should book a tour at your shortlisted homes to view the rooms and common areas and meet staff and residents.
There are three levels of government support for residential aged care depending on your income and assets: fully supported, partially supported and non-supported. Your level of support and the amount you pay is determined by Services Australia (Centrelink/DVA). The Basic Daily Fee is paid by all residents.
At your Care Interview, you’ll meet with a Care Manager. They'll take time to understand more about you and ensure we can meet your current and future care needs. This is an important part of the process because it is vital you receive the right care and, where possible, avoid any future moves. We want you to be in the right home, just as much as you do.
If the residential aged care home can meet your care needs, you will be notified and offered a room. If you decide to accept this offer, the next step is to complete your application forms. Once Anglicare receives your forms, an agreement (contract) will be created, which you will need to sign and return prior to moving into your new home.
It’s important that you make your room feel like home, so bring items that are meaningful to you – your bedspread, family photos, ornaments, books, or your favourite chair. If you’re not sure if you can bring an item with you, please ask our friendly team. We are committed helping you feel at home, and we will do everything we can to assist you.
