Healthcare


Our care philosophy is to provide holistic, person-centred care and support enabling our residents to maintain an independent lifetstyle for as long as possible. We have chosen Geratec as our service provider because our aims resonated with their own service philosophy.


The care given at …my place lifestyle at Stellendale Village is born of a unique understanding of the physical and emotional needs of those who live here. Having committed ourselves to a holistic approach to caring, we pride ourselves on offering specialist services and expertise in all areas of care for our residents – including occupational therapy, dietetics and nursing.

 

We focus on the person behind the symptoms and diagnoses. In practice, this means taking responsibility, not just for basic care, but for creating an environment in which our residents can thrive and live the best possible life. We do this with the assistance of those who are near and dear to the residents (for instance care-giving, for as long as possible, is in a resident's suite rather than in a Care Centre).


Services include:

  • Needs assessment and planning
  • Individual care plans and advice
  • Specialist health services
  • Specialist diets, planning and consulting
  • Companion-skills-development and training
