About our home
The Glendale Home holistic approach to care is person centred and places emphasis on promoting self-respect, dignity, choice, respect, autonomy and independence, skills development (social, emotional and motor), a sense of family, friends and community, meaningfulness (a connection to the world that has a meaning to the individual; an emphasis on individuality), stable and safe environment and most importantly recognition of an individuals’ wishes, aspirations and uniqueness.
Each resident has a unique personality with their own sense of humour and peculiar routines that are important to them.
In addition, our residents are aging and their mobility, health, cognition, capabilities and functioning are deteriorating. Despite these challenges, the residents love going on outings, participating in community projects, having visitors and family members around. They further enjoy their newly renovated home with its peaceful grounds and upgraded garden
