The Lyndoch Way

The Lyndoch Way is about empowering our people – residents, clients and staff – to create an environment where they feel valued, respected and secure.

Guided by the Eden Philosophy, the Lyndoch Way focuses on de-institutionalising aged care in Warrnambool and South-West Victoria by creating an engaging way of life, with an aim to ultimately relieving loneliness, boredom and helplessness by creating a homelike environment for residents and clients.

By recognising each person for the individual they are, we will strive to provide them with the specific services, care and support they need to enjoy a lifestyle that is their own – dignified, engaging, fulfilling and rewarding.

We will enable a wide range of people to lead totally unique lives. We will support them, advise them and give them help when they need us. We will show ourselves to be an organisation that can be implicitly trusted to treat them with respect, compassion and understanding in every interaction.

To achieve our Vision and Mission a number of objectives have been set.

Residential Care
To provide short and long-term care services in a supportive environment, encouraging comfort and dignity, and respects the rights of the individual.

To assist those with impaired functioning, with a view to maximising the individual’s potential and quality of life.

Community Support
To provide a range of services designed to maintain a person’s capacity to independently live in their community.

Service Development
To continually evolve to meet the changing needs of the community and to ensure that the needs of those requiring our services are recognised, and to take an innovative approach to our model of operation.

Contemporary Practice
To ensure that our practice and service delivery remains at the forefront, and to actively encourage professional development and to facilitate relationships with tertiary education institutions and other relevant industry and associated bodies.

Business Focus
To operate as a successful business so as to confirm our position at the forefront of the care sector today, tomorrow and into the future.
