Churches of Christ Care has enjoyed an award trifecta, receiving three nationally recognised awards in the space of six months.
It has added the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency Better Practice Award for improving wellbeing to its awards collection, along with the Aged and Community Services Organisation Award 2015 and PASCOP’s Annual Quality in Pastoral and Spiritual Practice Award.
The Better Practice award was awarded for Churches of Christ Care’s Preference Driven Care framework, which looks at personal, medical and clinical care, recognising programs, models or initiatives that showcase innovation.
The framework is part of the organisation’s Positive Wellbeing Model of Care, which includes five essential needs – comfort, attachment, inclusion, occupation and identity are a focus of the award-winning model of care. Signature programs have been developed within several different frameworks to improve the lives of clients
This is the third award Churches of Christ has received in the past year for its Positive Wellbeing Model of Care, which was developed after an intensive three year, self-funded study.
