Congratulations to Elaine Griffin and the team.
Not-for-profit aged care provider Scalabrini received the Best Aged Care Facility award for its newest village at the 2018 Australian Healthcare Week Excellence Awards. The Village is leading the way in innovation, particularly to support senior residents with ‘complex needs’ who can no longer live independently. Innovation examples include sensor flooring to detect movement and falls, mobile technology to replace nurse stations and keyless access to rooms. Built in Drummoyne, Sydney it’s the seventh facility for the Scalabrini group, setting the precedence of Aged Care facilities and dementia care in Australia.
Scalabrini chief executive Elaine Griffin said the village was an example of how the aged care industry and the needs of seniors were evolving. ‘Aged-care is rapidly changing. We are entering a dynamic, consumer-driven world where old paradigms of care will no longer work,’ she said.
‘Navigating this new world will mean providers such as Scalabrini will more than ever need to actively listen and respond to the needs of those we serve. Our ultimate goal must always be to provide excellent care that is individualised to each and every person in our care.’
