Home is a feeling
Tuohy is located in the beautiful Swan Valley region, one of Western Australia's oldest wine-producing regions and home to some lovely restaurants and cafes. Our bright and welcoming home offers large activity areas and lounges, all surrounded by beautiful gardens.
The home has won two Commonwealth Better Practice Awards from the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency. This prestigious national award recognises outstanding innovations in care. You'll find a large sensory garden which include quiet reflective areas for residents, family and friends. We provide frequent organised activities in the garden and encourage residents to use the garden to create a sense of wellbeing and freedom of movement. We also have a professional hairdresser who visits our home frequently - the cost of the service is added to your monthly bill.
The 2015 Better Practice Award rewarded the home for our approach to supporting the care needs of older people of diverse sexual orientations. Through a multi-disciplinary program, our staff have been able to foster a culture within the home that is inclusive and accepting of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) residents.
The 2017 Better Practice Award recognised the support and care taken to ensure care recipients’ final wishes being identified and respected. Partnering with care recipients, their representatives, care staff and community links, we developed the My Life, My Wishes booklet to document residents’ life stories, preferences and requirements.
We are proud of our demonstrated leadership in providing inclusive aged care and welcome all people regardless of lifestyle choices, ethnicity, faith, sexual orientation or gender identity. Our current team work with residents to ensure their needs are met with inclusive and appropriate actions.
We feel privileged to be entrusted with providing whole-of-person health and care for older people living with a wide range of complex health issues. We strive daily to provide care that enables our residents to live their life to the maximum extent feasible, to exercise choice and decision-making, and to maximise quality of life and wellbeing.
If you would like to find out more about life at Tuohy, we would love to show you around and talk about your specific requirements.
