On Thursday July 25th 2013, Emmy Monash Aged Care was announced as the winner of two Better Practice Awards by the Aged Care Standards and Accrediting Agency for the dementia program, Art Down Memory Lane and the Footsteps to Friendships, Pathways to Peace – Inter-Generational Art Alliance Program.

Our CEO, Tanya Abramzon says, “For me personally, to see the vision I share with the Board come alive in surprising and impactful ways is a dream fulfilled.”

“At Emmy Monash, we are genuinely finding new, innovative ways to advance aged care,” she says.

Emmy Monash has a philosophy, promoted by the Board of Directors and implemented by staff, that lifestyle activities are of equal priority with other objectives of the organisation.

On the floor, staff have a mandate to innovate. Beyond training, they are given the freedom and assistance to develop programs and explore opportunities they think will make a significant improvement to the lives of residents.

“It’s Melbourne’s Jewish community that have contributed so much to our success, and as a result we can all be proud of this significant acknowledgement of our innovative lifestyle programs,” says Tanya Abramzon. “

Emmy Monash is currently planning the development of a state of the art new facility at their Hawthorn Road site in Caulfield.

The achievement of these awards required a shared vision with The National Gallery of Victoria and St Vincent’s Health Community Gallery.
