Individual growth and spiritual development leads to a fullness of life

Dementia Care

Mercy Community Services (MCS) dementia program links with our person centered care philosophy, which promotes resident independence and the importance of resident choice.

Our philosophy of care supports integration of residents with dementia within mainstream aged care and the service welcomes residents with dementia and people ageing with intellectual disability.

We believe that resident outcomes are significantly better through:

  • maintaining social networks
  • supporting the normal activities of daily living
  • implementing individual programs that focus on capacity.

Specific dementia programs, staff training and building design have been structured to support and enhance these key components.
