Diversity

At Lifeview we like to not only think of ourselves as a progressive and industry-leading organisation, we like to demonstrate these attributes on a daily basis.

Lifeview’s delivery of residential aged care reflects contemporary International and Australian best practice models of holistic, person-centred care promoting quality of life, health, wellbeing, inclusion and the independence of each individual resident, including those living with dementia, mental illness or other complex conditions.

An equal opportunity employer that values diversity, Lifeview currently employs over 50 multilingual staff, fluent in more than 30 different languages. From the executive management team to frontline staff, Lifeview employs for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) diversity, bringing valuable cultural knowledge and language skills to each home.

Social inclusion is integral to Lifeview’s principles, policy and practice. Our approach to engaging with and caring for residents who may experience social, financial or cultural isolation or disadvantage in accessing appropriate residential aged care aligns with Australian better practice articulated in current national strategies such as the National Ageing and Aged Care Strategy for People from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Backgrounds and the National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) Ageing and Aged Care Strategy, (DoHA 2012).

Upon admission and at least quarterly, Lifeview consults all residents and families to tailor care and support to each individual’s cultural and spiritual values.

Our culture, policies and practices ensure all homes are inclusive of LGBTI residents, staff and volunteers. Lifeview is Rainbow Tick accredited.

Lifeview is committed to building an innovative new aged care living and retirement home specifically marketed to LGBTI people and friends in Prahran – Lifeview Marigold. Lifeview Marigold is at this stage scheduled to commence construction late in 2017.

Each year in May Lifeview celebrates the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT Day) at all its homes and corporate office. This day is embraced whole-heartedly by residents and staff alike.

Our View: To be an example of excellence by providing exceptional, inclusive service, whilst creating treasured moments.
