Welcome to Scalabrini
Established in 1968, the vision of our founding fathers – to create a place where their ageing family members could feel at home – continues to resonate across Scalabrini today. This inspiring and enduring model of love, compassion and care is the bedrock of everything we do today and everything we aspire to.
Built on authenticity and solid foundations, Scalabrini continues to evolve and innovate, actively embracing change and better ways of doing things.
While we are informed by the most up-to-date research and world’s best practice, we are guided by a common humanity in the way we support our residents to live life with self-worth and dignity. Our philosophy, Sono Io (Italian for This is me), recognises and respects each person for who they are. Across our villages we support and encourage residents to maintain self-determination and independence, always feeling respected and valued.
We also believe that having meaningful relationships is what makes us all human and feeling like we belong. By getting to know our residents – their needs, their desires, their passions in life – we try to make every moment matter, creating experiences, we hope, that enrich every life we touch.
We know that simply talking about these things will make little difference, instead, at Scalabrini we have deliberate strategies in place that ensure residents are truly at the centre of everything we do.
Providing a strong sense of home
Home is many things, but mostly home is being able to be yourself, feeling like you belong and are in control, feeling safe, secure and relaxed.
Seeing and valuing the person
We see the person for who they truly are, and not the condition.
Giving staff the time and flexibility to truly make a difference
We recognise the importance of making real connections and forming meaningful relationships.
