Philosophy of Care

The Management and Staff at Brookfield undertake to consider each resident as an individual and treat them with dignity and respect which their age and experience of life deserves.

They will meet each resident’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs in the best possible manner and be respectful of each resident’s privacy and personal space. It shall be recognised that the quality of life of each resident is more important than longevity and that Brookfield is a home which bestows purpose and enjoyment to their lives.

Brookfield will strive to be a real home to each resident. This will enable each resident to exercise the right to make independent decisions about their lifestyles within the context of community living. Residents who are unable to be completely independent will be encouraged to retain their independence for as long as possible.
