Our Values and Approach

Our Values and Approach

I believe in facilitating care and services so every older person has a reason to live life to the full. We need managers and leaders who empower, support, trust, and believe in their front-line staff to care for the whole person.

 

We Tailor Solutions

Your organisation, your people and your situation are unique; it needs a different approach which means we will tailor a solution specifically for your needs.

We Listen

We respect that you are experts on your organisation, your people and your stakeholders, so we listen to you to ensure we fully understand your situation.

We Are Results-focused

Our solutions are designed to achieve tangible results that add value. We want you to reach your goal and be ready to set new goals.

We Add Value

Regardless of the assignment, we aim to always work with you to build organisational capacity and skills within your organisation. We want you to become self-sufficient, not dependent on us.

We Act Ethically

We value the trust you have placed within us and will act ethically and responsibly with the information we have access to. If we do not think we can help you, we will be honest about that.

What I Stand For

  • Facilitating care and services so every older person has a reason to live life to the full.
  • Recognising the spiritual dimension in ALL care and services.
  • Respecting people living with dementia are whole people who fully experience life, interactions, and emotions, and it’s up to us to work out meaningful ways of connecting with them.
  • Supporting older people to live the life they want in their way.
  • Clinical care that enables older people to live the life they want.
  • Assessments and care plans that focus on what the person can do.
  • Facilitating older people to grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually to realise their potential.
  • Managers and leaders who empower, support, trust, and believe in their front-line staff to care for the whole person.
  • Managers and leaders to recognise that when staff authenticly care for older people, they will experience grief and loss and they need and deserve to have this recognised and supported.
  • Connecting older people to their tribe, their families, their community, and their interests regardless of where they live.
  • Older people taking risks and using their agency to make decisions about what impacts and affects them.

What I Stand Against

  • Paternalistic care

  • The inconsistency that says emotional and spiritual needs of older people are important, but then the majority of the resources and priorities are placed on physical care – both should be seen as equally important and both prioritised and resourced.
  • Clinical care that is atomistic, siloed, and deficit-based so that it merely maintains health instead of enabling a person to live the life they want.
  • Attitudes to dementia that suggest a less-than-human belief such as ‘the lights are out and nobody is home’, words like demented as though the person is their condition.
