Pride month at Eldercare
ElderPRIDE has been celebrated across all Eldercare residential care homes throughout June, to coincide with PRIDE month.
ElderPRIDE demonstrates commitment to our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer (LGBTIQ) residents, staff, families, volunteers, and visitors that we are a safe and welcoming organisation.
Resident and staff participation has been very positive and reflects a growing awareness of, and gratitude for, diversity in our community.
Morning and afternoon teas were held at most care homes, with many residents involved in the preparation of food, arts and crafts in rainbow colours.
You can ask that!
Eldercare is proud to have launched its short film which challenges the stereotyping of LGBTI people and provides insightful information to aged care employees about LGBTI issues, specifically those affecting the older population.
The short film was created as a tool for staff training to debunk the myths that are still out there surrounding Eldercare’s LGBTI residents, staff, volunteers and families and build on the cultural safety and consumer engagement that was a key strength of the organisation’s Rainbow Tick accreditation, achieved in September 2019. In the film, Eldercare staff and members of the LGBTI Advisory Group answer questions that they’ve seen for the first time when they are in front of the camera.
This project is supported by funding from the Office for Ageing Well through the Grants for Seniors program. The film was also made possible through sponsorship by Eldercare suppliers Veolia and Atlas McNeil.
Sod-turning launches build of new Eldercare Kirkholme
Construction began with the official sod-turning ceremony for a new 100-bed premium aged care home in Goodwood. Designed to be more homelike than aged care homes have been traditionally, Eldercare’s new home, Kirkholme, is due for completion in mid-2023.
The creative design is the outcome of extensive consultation with a broad range of stakeholders including residents in other Eldercare homes who were asked how they would plan the ideal aged care home.
Architects Brown Falconer captured the desired attributes of consumers in an innovative layout to create a more homelike and personal environment for residents.
Sarah Constructions has been announced as the successful builder of the new Eldercare Kirkholme. Managing Director James Sarah assisted The Hon David Pisoni MP, Minister for Innovation and Skills to symbolically turn the first sod today together with Professor Justin Beilby, Eldercare Board Chair and Jane Pickering, Eldercare Chief Executive.
