Our Model of Care

Best Practice Clinical Care

Group Homes Australia recognises that today’s generation of Australians want something more than traditional aged care homes. They, and their families, want options that provide high levels of respect and personal care combined within a warm, friendly environment, that is local and enjoyable to visit. Our Areas of Expertise:

  • Dementia Care
  • High Needs Care
  • Palliative Care
  • Respite

The lifestyle offered to residents enjoying living in a group home is unique and married with outstanding clinical care.  You can be assured your loved one will be safe, happy and secure in an environment that becomes their new ‘home’. Our clinical care ethos is to ensure individualised personal care focuses on the whole person and that includes their happiness. That is why we deliberately limit resident to 6-10 people per home and have an average staff-to-resident ratio of 1:3 ensuring that international best practices clinical care standards are achieved. Alzheimer’s Australia (Now Dementia Australia) benchmarked Group Homes Australia against over 80 competitors in the traditional aged care sector and revealed that it outperformed on every measure in relation to transition into care. Each home has a dedicated ‘Homemaker’ who has undergone an intensive training program with us.  These homemakers are supported by our team of registered nurses at the homes or on-call 24/7. We don’t use outside agencies as our staffing philosophy is all about continuity of care by the same team who understand each resident best. We also work with an established home visit GP, but of course we do understand some residents prefer to continue with their own. Local allied health professionals provide primary care services as required and local specialists and hospital-in-the-home acute service partners provide sub-specialised care if needed. All of this is facilitated from the Group Home, so the impact of change on each resident is minimised.
