Client Directed Care

Foundations of our Care

At Scalabrini Village our staff-to-resident ratios rank amongst the highest in the Australian aged care industry. This means a consistently higher quality of care. It also means that we have the resources and the expertise to respond more effectively to the varying care needs of individual residents.

Our unique organisational structure underpins the clinical and quality foundations of our care. Our Clinical Management team includes:

The Transition Nurse: A full time key worker charged with providing expert one-on-one care for new residents.

The Clinical Nurse Consultant : A full time expert nursing consultant who supports the registered nurses, their supervisor and the Village Care Manager. Areas of expertise include pain management, wound care and palliation.

The Clinical Nurse Educator : A full time role in every Village providing ongoing professional development and training for clinical staff.

The Care Manager: A full time role in every Village responsible for leading teams to provide quality resident care through training, education and management of staff, accreditation and continuous improvement.
