Catholic Homes: Enablers of living with dignity and purpose
Catholic Homes is a Christian based not-for-profit organisation who have been caring for Western Australians as they age for more than 50 years. Their care model ‘Care with Purpose’, is based on Montessori principles. The aim is to encourage people to remain active and busy for as long as possible, whilst continuing to do the things that bring them joy.
Such an innovative and proactive approach to care earned it two Better Practice Awards in 2015 for its care model and the Circle of Men project – a support and social group for men in aged care.
