Organisations: Aged Care

Aged Care

St. Basil's aims to provide the best possible quality aged care services within a culturally appropriate environment that enhances the dignity, independence and quality of life of all residents in its care.

In doing so, the work environment will value bilingual and bicultural knowledge, skills and understanding.

Our vision

St. Basil''s Homes will continue to provide quality aged care services and expand to include:
• palliative care facilities;
• hospice;
• respite;
• day care centres; and
• home care support services.
These services are responsive to, and inclusive of the needs of the aged from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Our philosophy

The ministry of St. Basil the Great is reflected in the work of St. Basil''s Homes, which believes that all people regardless of ethnicity, race, religion, gender and age are entitled to high quality aged care.

St. Basil was born in Asia Minor in the 4th Century. As Bishop, he preached and practiced the scriptural command of charity, establishing and supporting various philanthropic and welfare institutions, and comforting and caring for the sick, the needy and the elderly. He spoke out on issues of social justice, poverty and prejudice.

St. Basil's Homes believes in:
• The dignity, independence and self determination of the individual.
• The provision of quality care in a culturally and linguistically appropriate environment.
• The right of the individual to be respected and valued by their carers, family and community.
• The right of the individual to involve family and community in the planning and provision of their care.
• The right of the individual to have access to information which allows choice in their care provision.
• The right of the individual to confidentiality of personal information and records.

St. Basil's is committed to:
• Treating all residents as valued individuals with specific needs and interests and preferences.
• Providing a residential environment which reflects the diversity of its residents and their communities.
• Providing a work environment in which the employment, day to day management and administrative policies and practices value and affirm the cultural and linguistic diversity of the residents and staff.
• Ensuring that appropriate mechanisms are in place for residents to exercise their rights, including the provision or dispute resolution.
• Implementing the Commonwealth ''Residents'' Charter of Rights .
• Supporting the individual in exercising their choice to involve family and community in the planning and provisions of their care.
• Wherever possible, providing information and services in the language of the resident.
• Ensuring that confidentiality is maintained on all issues related to the resident''s personal information and records.
