6th Asia Pacific Eldercare Innovation Awards 2018
We are delighted to announce that Emmy Monash is a finalist in three categories of the 6th Asia Pacific Eldercare Innovation Awards 2018.
Best Active Ageing Program: Still Firing – Journeys through Sculptures and Clay
A partnership initiated by Emmy Monash Aged Care with Duldig Studios and Bialik College, Still Firing is a creative sensory program focussed on clay sculpture techniques and personal expression. Residents learned new artistic skills, fostered intergenerational friendships with the Bialik students and developed an appreciation of shared values and community wellbeing.
Best Silver Architecture: Gandel House
It’s no surprise that the architectural design of Gandel House has attracted international attention since it’s completion. We have created a community hub that encourages socialisation across generations, stimulates inclusiveness and offers opportunities for meaningful engagement. The architectural design allows for an abundance of natural light, flexible community spaces and themed lifestyle rooms which give residents more space for Emmy’s varied activities and programs.
Best Silver Interior Design: Gandel House
To challenge the notion that quality of life diminishes with age, Emmy Monash Gandel House strikes the right balance of aspirational lifestyle with clinical care options in a positive ageing facility where residents live a full life; socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically in a refined urban landscape.
Emmy Monash Aged Care has become a vibrant community hub, dedicated to sustaining and advancing our focus on aged care services and residential facilities. The culture of embracing innovation whilst demonstrating respect, empathy, and excellence reflects our Jewish heritage and values. Encouraging volunteers, family, students, professional partners and staff to become actively involved with residents, reflects our holistic philosophy.
Visionary leadership, committed board members, dedicated management, motivated staff and excellent facilities ensure residents needs are our paramount priority. Innovative lifestyle programs enhance the imagination of our residents promoting self-worth and quality of life, whilst the ageing in place structure encourages confidence, security and dignity for residents and their families.
To be recognised on an international stage for our innovation in active ageing programs as well as building architecture and interior design is an amazing achievement for Emmy Monash and we are very proud to be able to showcase our facility and programs to a global audience.
Award winners will be announced by the international judging panel at the Eldercare Gala Dinner in Singapore on 16th May, attracting a delegation of 600 participants from Australia, Singapore, China, Japan, Malaysia and New Zealand.
